Theo James and Emily Ratajkowski’s latest crime / drama Lying And Stealing is co-written and directed by Matt Aselton.
A gifted art thief who wants out and an aspiring Hollywood actress with huge debt team up to pull off the ultimate con / heist. All so they can can be free of their troubles…
I’m hoping to be pleasantly surprised by this one.
A part of me kind of needed to see more of an example of the consequences for James’s character if he were to just abandon his criminal lifestyle. I think that such a clip would have made me buy into the villainy of Fred Melamed’s Dimitri character a tad more.
Fred Melamed, Aris Alvarado, Fernanda Andrade, Tim Bader and Ray Ray Chase also star.
Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba star in Some Kind Of Beautiful. A Tom Vaughn directed drama/ romance set in England and LA.
Some Kind Of Beautiful is unfortunately not the most well executed movie I’ve seen recently. Its ills include the dialogue, general execution – particularly the lines delivered by Malcolm McDowell and aspects of the story that just don’t make sense to me, in terms of the character’s motivations or lack there of.
I tuned in firstly because I was in the mood for an onscreen romance. Secondly I wanted to watch a movie that wasn’t too demanding of my attention and lastly, I love Salma Hayek, a gifted actress and all round very smart woman.
There are things I did enjoy about Some Kind Of Beautiful and they include the soundtrack, the relationship between the sisters and the sunny LA location. I love to travel, you see. Even when I have to do it using mainly my imagination. 🙂
Watch it if something about the movie strongly appeals or if you really, really must.
