Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007)

Directed by Julian Schnabel

Starring Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuelle Seigner, Marie-Josée Croze, Anne Consigny


Intense, agonizing, one of the most depressing movies I’ve ever seen. Just a touch of comedy makes things even more tragic.

Schnabel does a fantastic job. The fact that an American, English-speaking director created this makes it even more impressive.

A truly courageous performance by Amalric. He should have gotten an Oscar for this. Von Sydow is impressive. Croze is a cutie.
