All Talk and No Action Saturday, December 3, 2011

Out of the many movies watched this season, I have to recommend Changeling.

Changeling has many things going for it : An Eastwood direction, a fabulous theme and some compelling questions on the horrible misuse of power by a State police. Like other Eastwood movies, the plot is taut and unforgiving; so much so, that as a viewer one is left emotionally zapped by the end of the ride.

But, the one reason that trumps all, is Angelina Jolie. Such elegance. The range in her performance is remarkable and you will go from feeling protective to enraged to sharing a deep sense of loss to holding her character in high respect.

Also, I haven't seen any other actress pull off wearing a bright red lipstick with such style. That alone made me cheer for her.
