Hollywood Buzz #68

O que se diz lá fora sobre INVICTUS, de Clint Eastwood:

«Freeman does a splendid job of evoking the man Nelson Mandela, who is as much a secular saint as Gandhi [...]. He shows him as genial, confident, calming -- over what was clearly a core of tempered steel.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

«Beyond the politician, Mr. Freeman and Mr. Eastwood allow us glimpses of a complicated and somewhat melancholy man, carrying the loneliness of his long imprisonment with him and estranged from much of his family.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times.

«Inspirational on the face of it, Clint Eastwood's film has a predictable trajectory, but every scene brims with surprising details that accumulate into a rich fabric of history, cultural impressions and emotion.»
Todd McCarthy, Variety.

«A temperate, evenhanded perhaps overly timid film about an intemperate time in South Africa.»
Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter.

«The film's speechifying is at times overexplicit, yet Freeman lets the words breathe, and Damon, as the cautious Afrikaner brought to a higher place by Mandela's authority, acts with a 
 coolly impassive fervor.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.

De Eastwood espero uma obra dotada de uma realização clássica, com performances profundas e marcantes e, sobretudo, uma boa história. E se nos oferecer isso, é mais um trabalho bem feito.

Um dos filmes que aguardo com especial interesse. Eastwood tem tido o dom de transformar aparentes histórias banais em grandes momentos de cinema.
