Hollywood Buzz #196

O que se diz lá fora sobre BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, de Richard LaGravenese:

«BEAUTIFUL CREATURES springs to life whenever Irons, Thompson or Rossum is centerstage. The grown-ups get to wear all the coolest costumes and spout all the juiciest lines. Problem is, this isn't their story. It's first and foremost a semi-plodding teen romance with supernatural overtones.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

«There’s not much new under the moon here, which makes what the writer and director Richard LaGravenese does with the story all the more notable.»
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.

«Fortunately, writer-director Richard LaGravenese has jettisoned most of the novel and refashioned its core mythology and characters into a feverishly enjoyable guilty pleasure.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.

«Nicely cast and made with as much conviction as can be brought to something so intrinsically formulaic.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.

«BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, more than the TWILIGHT films, lacks danger and momentum. The audience, like Ethan, spends way too much time waiting around for Lena to learn whether she's a good girl or a bad girl.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.

Este homem é um dos melhores escritores que Hollywood já produziu.

Sam disse...

Sim, adoro o que LaGravenese fez, por exemplo, com o AS PONTES DE MADISON COUNTY.

Já pude ver este BEAUTIFUL CREATURES e, infelizmente, não posso dizer que seja memorável :)

Cumps cinéfilos.
