Blake P (it) wrote: What is comedy, what is tragedy, and which is better? That's a question that's asked within the first five minutes of "Melinda and Melinda", not figuratively, but literally, by a writer (Wallace Shawn) who is having dinner with a group of fellow playwrights. He is the "comic" writer, while Larry Pine is the tragedian. They paint two situations, one a romantic comedy, and the other a drama. They have three things in common - the star is Melinda (Radha Mitchell), she has gone through a divorce, and she is crashing a dinner party. In the drama, she is a hopeless mess who relies on pill popping and alcohol to get by, and crashes in with her doting married friends, Laurel (Chlo Sevigny) and Lee (Jonny Lee Miller) to get things figured out. She gets involved with a romantic pianist (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who eventually sets his sights on Laurel, leading Melinda down the same spiral she was on before. In the romantic comedy, Melinda is a cute, slightly kooky woman who finds herself at a stranger's dinner party after taking a few too many sleeping pills. The party is hosted by self-absorbed filmmaker Susan (Amanda Peet) and her husband Hobie (Will Ferrell), a struggling actor. Despite her arrival, the group gets to like Melinda, and before long, Hobie, feeling long ignored by Susan, develops feelings for her. "Melinda and Melinda" is an intriguing film. It definitely isn't perfect - at times, the drama feels a bit forced, and the romantic comedy is more cutesy than romantic or funny - but Woody Allen, after years of great films (and a few misfires), takes familiar elements and makes them fascinating again. Though both the plots are technically fake and merely exist in the minds of the fictional writers who thought them up, you can't help but get entranced in the lives of the characters. Each story is completely opposite from the other, and it makes for good contrast: if either was a single film, most likely neither would have worked. Allen's voice is distinct as usual, whether or not it exists in a female character or not, and it fits well - the film has a set of neurotic characters that fit in the same category of Allen himself. Divorce is a major theme in the film, and no matter which storyline it slides into, it's dealt with in a compelling manner. It shows how Allen, after years of experience, can easily write wry comedy just as well as drama. The ensemble, which has a unique range, delivers. The supporting players, which includes Ejiofor, Sevigny, Peet, and Miller are all fittingly excellent, but it is Radha Mitchell and Will Ferrell who steal the show. Ferrell plays against type, and it's refreshing to see. Watching him play an average guy almost seems like a sight to behold, and he does a great job with it. Mitchell is phenomenal - she is the only actor in the film who is forced to play two characters, and she is wonderful. She brings such intensity to her portrayal(s) of Melinda that either way, we're completely magnetized. "Melinda and Melinda" isn't the best film in Allen's lengthy filmography, but it's interesting to watch and, in all, entertaining.

Cory B (es) wrote: Can't say if I enjoyed this or 'Gray's Anatomy' more, but one things for sure; I love Spalding Gray and these monologue films are definitely my bag. 'Swimming' is essentially a gigantic hubris-filled, self-centered odyssey about Gray's own role in Roland Joffe's 1983 film 'The Killing Fields,' where he had about three lines. The obscurity of the premise is what makes this 'show' so interesting; he spins what could be a simple conversation into a full-blown theater piece. And, Gray sheds a lot of deep, eye-opening opinions about the Cambodian conflict on which 'Fields' is based. The only touchy thing is that Jonathan Demme 'directed' this; the film essentially switches between three cameras, and the Demme thing is just prestige. Some TV station cameraman probably filmed the whole thing. Regardless, it's a fun and hilarious trip into the psyche of a (sadly) dead man. Can't wait to see 'Monster In A Box' now.
