Come As You Are, review

Come As You Are, directed by Richard Wong, is an American comedy that concerns a bunch of disabled Americans who set out for a specialist brothel across the border between the United States and Canada. Playing a sex worker who services disabled clients in The Sessions even helped Helen Hunt to get an Oscar nomination. So, it seems that Come As You Are is really worth watching.

The decision to cast able-bodied actors in the three main roles is more controversial. Hayden Szeto plays Matt, a wheelchair-user smothered by too-careful parents; Ravi Patel is a dry-humoured blind guy named Mo; and Grant Rosenmeyer is Scotty, a quadriplegic with hip-hop ambitions.

Adapted from a Belgian film of 2011, what Come as You Are works so well is largely down to the smooth, quasi-improvised interplay between actors who bounce off each other like the members of a long-established troupe. 

Scotty always makes the most inappropriate remark. Mo is the rooted hub. Matt works tragedy in with his comic reserve. Gabourey Sidibe adds in delightful kickback as the health worker tricked into being their driver.

The comedy is successful in doing risk a few gags that play off the characters’ disabilities. Although none of those jokes sinks to the level of Pryor and Wilder in See No Evil, Hear No Evil, a late confusion involving Matt does gesture bravely towards the blind flower girl in Chaplin’s City Lights.

The film is entirely uninterested in the ethics of sex work and bashful about copulation. It ends in a showpiece nudging us towards inspirational uplift. However, the actors have such fun that one may hope to see them reunited for a future project.

To conclude, though the title is still unforgivable, it is about 200 per cent better than it reads on paper.

‘Cats: The film was criticized but the music is doing well

Director Tom Hooper must have had dozens of bricks to bring back as a Christmas gift, when the adaptation of the Broadway musical called Cats: Cats, really failed miserably. The film is receiving a lot of criticism from both professionals and moviegoers. The most obvious evidence for the tragic end of Cats is the 17% score on the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes.

Negative comments and comments about the film have been appearing ever since the first trailer of the film was released. The first day of the Cats release also grossed … “terrible” with only 6.2 million. Actually this is a very painful result after the efforts of the whole crew.

But this review is not to be deceived, but to advocate for this adaptation. Ignoring haters, ignoring disgusting comments, ignoring the flat score and also disappointing sales. If you love music, you will love the movie. If you like the choreography and the inability to act, you’ll love the movie. So treat this as a work to enjoy in the Christmas season, not too scrutinizing.

The story of Cats: Cats are very simple. Almost all the details in the book Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S Elliot, published in 1939, are completely preserved. Victoria kitten, played by bale actress Francesca Hayward, was thrown away in an alley in London. Soon after, the cat was surrounded by wild cats named Jellicles, and they introduced themselves with the song Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats. The members of this “gang” include Skimbleshanks, Jennyanydots, two thieves Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer, fat cat Bustopher Jones and finally Mr. Mistoffelees with a warm heart.

Victoria seems to have joined the ranks of Jellicles cats on a pretty day. Deuteronomy, the goddess of cats, is hosting the annual party called Jellicle Ball. Each cat will have to impress her to enter the Heaviside Layer, where the chosen cat will have the opportunity to reincarnate. However, all conflicts occur when the Jellicles group is attacked by Macavity, a crafty, cunning cat. His accomplices Growltiger and Bombalurina want to take control of their leader Macavity.

The production, design and costumes of the movie are very … weird. This I also agree. However, the more you watch, the more familiar the audience becomes familiar with the images. To do this, audiences must at least have faith in the adaptations, or in this case Cats. The costumes and makeup of the actors are greatly supported thanks to CGI technology. The cats in the movie are modified with mischievous ears and the tail is always fluttering. Another thing that audiences need to keep in mind is that the characters in the movie are full-sized, like cats. So the set must be really huge. For most of the film, cats will dance together, sing under tables, or even on a dirty street with dozens of trash bins around.
