More Movies

Watched over the last last month were two more movies: The French Lieutenant’s Woman and Adaptation.

The French Lieutenant’s Woman was innovatively made, two almost parallel storylines alternating with each other. It was quite gripping, and the performances were quite good. The endings, while not exactly a surprise, still complemented the entire movie. All in all, an enjoyable watch.

Adaptation, on the other hand, started out brilliantly, proceeded well, before nastily spiralling out of control in the last twenty minutes. Good performances by Nicholas Cage, Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper. Worth watching, but be prepared for a less than satisfactory ending.

  1. Hey, just realised that both these movies have Meryl Streep in major roles. Then made another discovery, thanks to IMDB: Tilda Swinton, who turned in a good performance in “Young Adam” was also in “Adaptation” – playing the role of the film company executive/agent!!!! Talk about Degrees of Separation….
