21 Grams review

Daniel Corleone, FilmCrave
28 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Stories of 3 individuals intertwined involving a reformed convict Jack Jordan (Benicio del Toro), a stalker type stubborn professor named Paul Rivers (Sean Penn) and a widowed drug addict Cristina Peck (Naomi Watts). The style of directing was confusing at first, trying to much to be like Memento. The soundtrack and cinematography was alright. What makes this film special are the performances of the 3 main figures and screenplay.

Degraded intentionally

  • Excerpt: As pointed out in the relevant thread, the image/texture was degraded, and various contrast and color manipulations were performed - as desired by Rodrigo Prieto and Alejandro González Iñárritu. So, while the transfer is not perfect, it is indeed very, very good. From an article posted by BFI: "Rodrigo Prieto's handheld cinematography was nervous and edgy in Amores perros. Here it is positively vertiginous, swinging between the distraught actors for much of the picture.

  • Summary: This is a movie about how three people find their lives quietly intersecting. It's less in-your-face about the interlocking plotlines as, say, Crash, which actually allows the subdued emotional portrayals of the principle actors to shine. A haunting portrait of grief and forgiveness.

  • Summary: Watts, Penn, Del Toro...I love when movies cast brilliant actors. At first the movie starts out a little confusing. It takes a little bit to get into the groove of things. But once the story got going I was hooked in. When I read the summary I had a feeling that this was going to be something like Crash or Babel. However, movies like these never fail to be original and different. The acting in this movie carried it from beginning to end.

  • Summary: "21 Grams" is a superb dramatic thriller, expertly laid out and told with incredible conviction. Three individuals (played to genius-level by Sean Penn, Benecio del Toro, and Naomi Watts) is a power-house of emotions that tell the literal and metaphorical weight of the human soul. A touching portrait of life where there are more grey zones than anything, this masterpiece is one that will fall forever under the category of greatness.
