Review: Closer

If watching a bunch of pretty rich people whine about love while they sleep around behind each other’s back for two hours is your idea of quality entertainment, then this is the movie for you.

This movie was dull, shallow, and a waste of my time (and it takes a lot to waste my time). The acting was decent and it was well put together, but I just didn’t care. There was nothing likeable about any of the characters. They were rich, pretty, and crude, and that’s as far as their personalities went. From what I saw, it’s supposed to be about love, or the trials of love, but in the words of Alice (Natalie Portman), “Where is this love? I can’t see it, I can’t touch it. I can’t feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words, but I can’t do anything with your easy words.”
