Phillip Morris...¡Te quiero! **

Jim Carrey y Ewan Mcgreggor protagonizan esta tragicomedia "gay", con papeles dispares pero que logran con cierta airosidad. Empieza con aspiraciones, pero va decayendo.

Una idea novedosa es lo que nos atrajo a elegir esta película entre cientos dvd's, que aguardan impacientes a su momento de gloria, mientras se resguardan del polvo en uno de los pocos videoclubs decentes que aún se mantienen vivos en mi cercanía.

Punto y aparte merece este tema, los videoclubs, negocio tan común y espumoso hace diez o quince años, y que actualmente esta en el hospital esperando su hora. Y suerte que Megavideo claudicó y le ha dado unos años más de vida. Una pena, yo disfruto mucho allí, un lugar en el que un par de estanterías separan décadas de cine, y siempre encuentras alguna de aquellas que siempre quisiste ver, te alegra el día. Ahora, hasta el que frecuentaba la recóndita zona del cine X, ha elegido internet.

Dos párrafos y ni una palabra sobre el tema de la crítica, denota desinterés, el que me ha ido generando esta extraña historia basada en hechos reales, que pese a resultar llamativa, termina siendo tediosa. Es fácil darle la culpa a algo, la historia podría estar mejor aprovechada, pero más díficil es lanzarse a hacer una película. Por ello, no culparemos a nada en concreto, y solo diremos que hay un desacierto en la forma y en el quién.

 

Ewan me ha encantado, pese a que sale poco, y tiene menos para lucirse, me sorprendre y me lo creo. Una pena que no se haga uso del potencial que podría tener en la historia. Jim Carrey es un error, porque es Jim Carrey, y si se le dice que nos haga un drama con cierto peso emocional, almenos con un final que nos dé un poco de pena, pero a la vez pretendemos que haga lo de siempre y nos vaya aliviando la historia con risas, sale algo muy raro.

 

Es muy protagonista para lo que puede dar en este caso. Nunca nos interesará el contenido del personaje, generandose así una supervivencia basada en la originalidad de sus hazañas, tanto en prisión como en cualquier momento de su vida. Por lo tanto, sí que en ciertos momentos es "interesante" ver como se va autosacando las castañas del fuego, pero los párpados se van cerrando lentamente.

 

Por lo tanto, y con todo lo dicho, si la película es de videoclub, y en este caso te cuesta un euro (y entre dos), el mal es menor y el riesgo valía la pena. Me quedan dos por ver, espero haber escogido mejor, aunque la verdadera gracia está en seleccionar algo sin tener ni pajolera idea de lo que te puede aportar, y termine siendo algo inolvidable (El Secreto de Sus Ojos)

Hasta la fecha, Phillip Morris tiene un 5,2

    and the rest of them I melt in sheer awe, however, my bsiaes aside, I don't think anyone can disagree that's he pretty fucking nerdtastic.But returning from my tangential exultations, in my view,
    there is a huge difference between acknowledging/ respecting differing opinions and remaining silent to the point of letting ignorance hold court. I am reminded of a recent Guardian article about how
    we need insults in politics to keep democracy alive. The question then is, does the same apply to academia? For years, I (naively) thought most certainly not!' and then I was exposed to the harsh
    reality of the backbiting and sniping and overall pettiness. I suppose what I'm getting at in this rambling mess of words is that I don't have particularly high hopes for public education because if
    researchers cannot even be civil enough to one another, what are the chances of them effectively working with mere laypeople'?More to the point, how does one define engaging the public'? One has for
    instance, PBS, Discovery, the History Channel, et cetera. The latter two I find deal a great too much in the business of shock value and not-always-so-solid research. And where does it come from?
    Scientists who made the time to educate' (I'm using the term very loosely) because they wanted to become famous, which in turn is not a bad way of attracting financiers/ patrons.On the subject of
    filthy lucre, yes, it is expensive to hire good instructors but in a country where so much of our hard-earned money eventually goes towards dropping bombs and goddess-knows-what-murderous-else, I can
    only scoff at the idea that a well-informed public is worth significantly less than a nickel off gas prices or a slightly more favourable set of trade laws.The sartrienne in me says all that
    ultimately matters is that you as an individual are taking responsibility, namely by way of creating this site. If more science enthusiasts get out there and conduct guerrilla knowledge warfare of
    sorts, then maybe not all is lost? There are many sides to the initial problem you posed. For one thing, the US is not exactly a hospitable place for intellectuals; even when one is placed in gifted
    schools/ advanced classes, the environment can be far from friendly. Secondly, we have to consider those pesky politicians who would gladly proclaim on the Empire State Building that Jesus rode a
    dinosaur if it meant they got a hefty contribution or (shock horror) elected. Then we have the largely bifurcated media who normally act as sounding boards for the aforementioned. (Note: bifurcation
    here is not bisection; the Fox empire and the Daily Mail obviously make for a much larger ugly throbbing branch than the Guardian and Truthout do.) Lastly, there is the commercialisation and
    monetisation of research interests. More and more we are seeing people less interested in learning for the sake of learning, rather they are focused on what a degree or study will earn for them. This
    is a growing trend throughout the world in the wake of deteriorating economies and snake-oil policies. How then to get the average Joe/ Jill interested in why octopuses are the only known
    invertebrates with erectile tissue or how two rainbows can form concurrently on a cloudy day? I'm not claiming to have the answer but I think Idiocracy does.
