hey *happy*phantom*! You're not alone. I liked the movie too. But not necessarily for aesthetic reasons (The plot, characterization and acting had far too many flaws). I liked the film because I was able to relate to it in a deeply personal way (The relationship and fate-like bond between the Estella and Finn was depressingly familiar). And it had it's share of magical moments (ex. The fountain kissing scene).Originally posted by *happy*phantom*
I heard some mixed reviews about the movie version starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ethan Hawke. Some like it, some didn't. As for me, I liked it a lot . I really think Anne Bancroft was brilliant in this movie.Originally posted by Ain
What about GREAT EXPECTATIONS? This is a fabulous movie!!! One of my favorites!
I guess, you are really your own best critic.
This film gave me the same magical feeling when I saw Before Sunrise which, in my opinion, is Ethan Hawke's best film. I'd agree with you though, that we really are indeed our own best critics. Directors like Terrence Mallick (Many people say "The thin red Line" was bad---I disagree) understand this more than anyone.
