"Monster's Ball" reminds me a little too much of "Crash," which must surely be one of the very worst films ever to win the Academy Award for Best Picture (over "Brokeback Mountain?" Really?) Like "Crash," the acting is good pretty much across the board, but the film is painfully contrived.
Having recently re-watched "The Candidate," Robert Redford's 1972 political satire about California politics, I decided to watch its "companion piece from the next generation," Warren Beatty's "Bulworth" from 1998. Thirty minutes into the film, it seems like a strange, love-child of "The Candidate" and "Network" (remember Howard Beale (Peter Finch) losing it, and screaming, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"). That said,"Bulworth" is going to have to get better for me to like it as much as either of those two films. I'm not going to write up a long review
