Punch Drunk Love - Movie Review

"I sometimes cry a lot....for no reason."

This is the Adam Sandler I'd like to see more of. He's performance was both funny and heart-breaking at the same time. But I couldn't bring myself to watch another Sandler film after this. He's gotten so lazy and doesn't bother staring in theses type of movies anymore. This film perfectly demonstrates that he's capable of more than what he's famous for. You can see the boiling rage inside of Sandler character and tries to contain it. He acts nice around other people and finds joy in the strangest way.

There's nothing else quite like it. The lighting, camera movements, framing, timing, and EXTREME attention to detail bring this film to a whole other level. Paul Thomas Anderson is lighting in the bottle.

Oh and Philip ...

Awkward and surreal.

When I want to watch a movie that I know will inspire me, change my perspective and have me marveling at its greatness, I pick a Paul Thomas Anderson movie.
I love the acting in There Will Be Blood, I adore the characters in Magnolia and Boogie Nights I could just watch a thousand times.
Sadly, Punch-Drunk Love isn't the case. It was actually quite a miss for PTA.
I think this is the problem: Directors who aren't familiar with comedy don't know how to do comedy directly.
They can have elements and moments of comedy and comedic reliefs in their films, but when they decide on a straight up comedy movie, it doesn't work out too well. Hence, we have this movie.

Adam Sandler wasn't funny in this movie, but I'm glad he decided to tone down and not act like a mule all the time (I really d...

Punch Drunk Love review

If your into strange love stores with a crime story, this may appeal to you. A weird lonely business owner named Barry Egan (Adam Sandler) encounters a car crash wherein a mysterious harmonium was left on the street and meets Lena Leonard (Emily Watson). Barry tries to earn a million frequent flyer miles from a marketing glitch and calls a phone sex hotline for conversation. Dean Trumbell (Philip Seymour Hoffman), owner of a mattress store, is the Supervisor of "Georgia," the girl who wanted Barry's financial help.

Soundtrack was quite hypnotic much like Drive (2011). This film is admired by Judd Apatow since it clearly shows some dark humor. Pacing somewhat slow in the beginning then picks-up when trouble with the credit card/phone sex girl arises. Another baffling scene wher...

Adam Sandler as you've never seen him before

P.T. Anderson is certainly one of the best directors of his generation. Having written and directed long and epic films such as Boogie Nights and Magnolia prior to this one, it is not surprising that Anderson wanted to make a shorter film such as this one. Running for only 95 minutes, Punch-Drunk Love is outstanding.

Barry Egan (Adam Sandler) is a small business owner in L.A., who sells plungers and other toilet related things. He is constantly berated and emotionally abused by each of his seven sisters, particularly Elizabeth (Mary Lynn Rajskub) who wants him to go out with her friend Lena (Emily Watson). Barry rebuffs Elizabeth's attempts to get him to go out with Lena, and after a glass-smashing fit of rage at a party held by his sisters, he returns home and calls a phone-sex ...

"Punch Drunk Love" by Yojimbo

An emotionally repressed salesman woos his sister's colleague but blackmailers from a phone sex line complicate matters. I hate Adam Sandler, I think he is the least funny man on the planet. I have been conned into watching his films in the past because of the talent associated (namely Anger Management featuring Jack Nicholson) and my opinion did not change. Here we have a film directed and written by the excellent Paul Thomas Anderson who was responsible for some brilliant films, not least of which the very funny Boogie Nights. Punch Drunk Love however is most certainly not one of them; the only reason I knew that this was supposed to be a comedy is because it was written on the back of the DVD cover. When will film makers realise that oddball does not automatically equal funny...? All o...
