Losing it.

G’day readers!

I love my action movies, special effects, aliens, superheroes , but nothing is quite as satisying as watching somebody completely lose their shit on camera without so much as a lighting effect in sight. Human psychology wins every time!

Here are some good recent examples of people losing it on camera:

1. Cate Blanchett – Blue Jasmine

Cate does this so well I don’t even know where to begin. Once at the top of her game in wealthy social circles , Jasmine returns to live with her sister in San Francisco after her husband loses all of their money, goes to jail and commits suicide. In denial about all of this, Jasmine does every textbook mental breakdown activity; from talking to herself,  to dressing way too proper.

2. Joaquin Phoenix – Her

Joaquin Phoenix in Her manages to give a little bit of life to a relatively boring movie which is basically about your Smartphone. After buying the latest smart operating system, Joaquin starts a relationship with his computer called Samantha and soon finds out that he is incapable of having a relationship with a real human being . ( I personally think this is because he owns a Ukelele in the movie but I could be wrong ).

3. Everyone in the Wolf of Wall Street

It pains me to say but Leonardo DiCaprio is actually a good actor.  Ignore Titanic.

The Wolf of Wall-street is based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, who scammed investors in the 90’s and became a millionaire as a result (and also served time in prison). With great money came a great amount of responsibility, and drugs, and sex. Also,  Matthew Mccaunaghay is everywhere these days have you noticed that? I see big things for him this year.

 Have a good weekend folks. Happy watching.
