Three sentence movie reviews: Things We Lost in the Fire


Every once in a great while I come across a movie where the characters feel like real people, not things created to tell a story.  This is such a movie, and what well-written/acted/directed movie.  The story of the widow and the heroin addict is well worth watching.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

  1. Another fine review, my dear! I always love when you unearth movies that I feel like I should know about, but don’t. Good find!

  2. It’s shocking how frequently writers (of both movies and books) create characters that are just that: characters. I may be guilty of that too. I suppose it’s simply difficult to capture how people truly are. Also, real life people tend to be way more boring than characters.

    I was always a bit neutral on Benicio del Toro, until I saw him in Sicario. Now I have a lot of respect for him.

    1. I think it’s hard too, because people are so complex and to capture everything your plot would get lost in the shuffle.

      I have loved Benicio del Toro for a long time now, and this just kept the love going.
