    Subtle?? About as subtle as a punch in the face. 6 years 10 months ago

    "The Help" is a legitimately inspiring movie about courage, women's rights, race-relations and the power of art to put a mirror up to a society. Viola Davis is her usual remarkable self and truly deserves an Oscar for her performance, but the strength of the entire ensemble cast makes her performance only one among many great ones. Yes, this is the kind of film that will win an Oscar - likely Best Picture - and I think it probably deserves it. The editing is tight and crisp with few meaningless or wasted shots, the score moving and effective, the dialogue powerful at times, others subdued. It is a subtle film where much is left unsaid - perfect for a film about speaking out in a society where much is left unsaid. There is indeed very little to quibble with in this film - though one can see that it does take a somewhat safe, cursory, feel-good approach to civil rights. 6 years 11 months ago
