A Gem

Movie image
Cold Mountain
4 out of 5 stars

Caught this last night. Didn’t know that it was such a great movie. Renee’s performance was indeed an Oscar material. Just found out that she won an Oscar for her role as the rowdy country girl. She was my favourite character! Well deserving!!! I know I know that was like 3 years ago. I am a bit ignorant when it comes to the Oscars and esp movies that have anything to do with war, etc. But this film is indeed a gem. Jude absolutely excelled. So did Nicole but less endearing compared to Renee.

  1. Blech. The Zellweger-bitch’s donkey-braying shriekfest of a performance almost throttled this film at its very core, IMO. One of the most ghastly things to get near Oscar for years, even if it was ALWAYS gonna win. :disgust: Bitch can cunt off for all I care, Oscar my ASS.

    However, I am in the (seeming) minority that appreciates Cold Mountain – and I wouldn’t call myself a fan of Minghella’s previous works, having seen The English Patient and The Talented Mr. Ripley . The film benefits from beautifully understated work by its two leads. That, and I’m a sucker for epic romances – even if this one is a little undercooked. They glance at each other for a few days, share a kiss and then they’re madly in love? Well, I guess it’s romantic ... and Law and particularly Kidman are talented enough to pull it off. Just.

    I think it occasionally overreaches with its multiple storylines, but it serves as a solid exploration of the effects of war – in the domestic sphere as well as the military one, which is refreshing. Plus it’s so damn PRETTY?!!?! I mean, seriously, this was a beautifully shot film if little else.
