I had seen this film on the radio on television and I hadn't been able to get it out of my mind. I have seen it again and again and I still love it. It tells the story of a woman named Helen who finds a way to keep her secrets from everyone - even her husband - about her affair with a co-worker. She doesn't tell her husband until he asks, so she hides it from him. She begins to write down the names of people she knows, and soon people begin to get it on with her. The film has some elements of "The Man Who Knew Too Little" (1959) about hiding secrets. Helen's son does not know, and tries to kill himself. She hides it from him, but he begins to figure it out. Helen's husband is very nice. She and his wife (Helen Duchamp) have a lively relationship. Helen has a little boy, who likes to climb on a tree and play. He takes on the name of George Scott, but his real name is Ralph (he never gets to the name). Helen has a long and successful career in publishing and art. She writes and paints and the book she is writing is a successful hit. The problem is, all of her secrets get out. She begins to be married to a man who she never knew about, and he finds out about her husband. She must hide it. Helen tells everyone what she is going to do and they will always blame her. So, she has to hide it and find a way to keep it secret, and tell everyone who she knows. There are a few minor flaws. The movie is mostly played for laughs, so it's a little funny at times. There are some shots that are hard to see and some that are difficult to hear, especially when she is talking to the photographer. The pacing is a bit slow in spots, but the movie is worth the wait.

Here's the deal. I'm not a huge James Bay fan. This was his first American film, so he's way overdue for a good film. He's going for gritty realism and character development, but he's still not a master storyteller, so he doesn't do that well. I guess the point of this film is to show us that the town in which we live doesn't have to be like that. It has to be full of secrets and monsters and their plots. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that it isn't all sunny in the world. This film is a good change of pace for James Bay, and he's very much a new director. He's definitely a director to watch for in the future. In a lot of ways, this movie is like a noir movie, but in a different setting. Here's the thing. I hate noir. They make movies that are dark, creepy, violent and have a dark mood to it, but most of the time they're very contrived. This movie is a little different, in that we can see how he wants to tell a story and how he wants the characters to behave and how he wants the setting to be. Sometimes he can go a little too far. In some of the scenes, the film kind of doesn't pull it together. There's a scene that's supposed to be very dark, but it's just a lot of weird music and a lot of music that seems to be unnecessary. I think they could've done with more editing. Overall, it's a good movie, but it's a little bit different than what I expected and that's a good thing. The performances are good, the script is good, and the setting is a good one. It's one of those movies that's different, but not so different that it's really different from anything else that has come out in recent years.

A brief synopsis: A young man, Jeff (Toby Jones), in search of his family, takes refuge in a bookstore. But in order to prove his worth, he must make a bet with his father (Gene Hackman), to see who can find a picture of the family first. And that's just the beginning. From the very first moments, the movie carries the story forward with only a single frame of action. The director tells the story with multiple, often overlapping, shots. The result is like being in a room, but you can't see the entire room. The environment is literally a movie. The story is told through a set of signs. But the sign that holds the story together is a book. It is the book that Jeff has been looking for, so long. He decides to use that book to convince his father that he has found the one picture of the family he has been searching for. The story is told from the point of view of a book. The book is a book that Jeff has been looking for, and his father finds it in the bookstore. The book is a book that is so interesting that it could fill a lifetime. Because the book contains the sign that holds the story together. What is the sign? Why does it keep changing? Who knows. But how do you tell that a story is interesting? How do you tell a story that is so complicated that no one can understand it? How do you tell a story that a person can't understand? That's the mark of a good book. So the movie is like that. But the book itself is not just the sign. It is the whole book.

A story of an insatiable longing for a life of wisdom, or does it? How does a man known for his slovenly appearance gain a reputation as one of the finest writers of the 20th Century? How can a man as careless and impulsive as Gatsby and his wife, Daisy, ever attain the level of respect and admiration they so clearly possess? In this film based on the novel "Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the director, Todd Haynes, gives us a magnificent and incredibly moving narrative about Gatsby's life in New York and the daily trials and tribulations that go with it. It is a story of deception, obsession, and obsession's power to change and change into something bigger than oneself. But, to the viewers, it is also a story of the effects of love and the desire for love in the most unsavory of ways. In spite of the fact that many viewers may find the film slow and boring, it is not. The movie is rich in dialogue and insight. Many of the scenes are quiet and dark, but they are part of the story, and the actors do a magnificent job of conveying the gravity of these scenes and the intensity of the lives that surround them. Michael York is marvelous in his role as Gatsby, and his performance is just as strong when he is walking or speaking. Dustin Hoffman is brilliant in his role as Nick Carraway, the cynical but brilliant and influential writer who worked for his creator, Nick Carraway (Tom Hulce), as Nick's chief rival. Daniel Day-Lewis gives a wonderful performance as Gatsby's son, Robert. And, of course, the masterful work of Meryl Streep, of course, as Daisy. In all, the film is rich in storytelling, and the conversations between the actors are filled with insight. The film is a story about not just the relationship between Gatsby and Daisy but also between Daisy and Nick, and between Daisy and Nick's mistress, Fanny Alger. This film is a story about love and life in the American 20th Century, and it is a story about a man who lived and loved a beautiful life, and then spent his life looking for happiness in the shortest time, even when it was the shortest in his life. A great story of life and love.
