Isaac J (jp) wrote: Director Adam Shankman bombs our screens with this fun, loud, colourful and musical extravaganza, adapting the popular Broadway and West End sensation. Though Hairspray could have so easily been a camp and irritating mess, this 2007 film showcases irresistibly catchy songs, an entertaining and thought-provoking story and an all-star, all-hair cast, making it an unqualified success. Newcomer Nikki Blonsky is brilliant in the lead role as the big girl with a big heart, Tracy Turnblad, aided by Christopher Walken, Michelle Pfeiffer and a hilarious John Travolta in drag. Based around the TV segregation of 1960's America, Hairspray manages to convey an important message, whilst still keeping a light-hearted and easy feel. Overall, Hairspray, expected by many to be too tumultuous for film, succeeds in being an entertaining and polished film, that is faithful to its source material, whilst also giving its own interesting spin.

Nicki M (es) wrote: After the relatively demanding "Cracks", I felt like a nice movie, something comforting from the past... and this one fit the mood well. It's surprising that I would like a "baby" movie, I guess, but this one got me quite young. I still say it has the worst beginning to a movie ever, though, I was eating while I was watching this one tonight, and it nearly made me sick!Another thing I like about this, is even though it has the required happy ending, it's not sugar coated or overly sentimental. This young couple hit every obstacle going - teen pregnancy. poverty, no support from family, post natal depression and the overall strain of being a young married couple with a baby. Though it is romantic in a way, the situation sure isn't.Molly Ringwald is wonderful here. I always think she is wonderful, I have loved her since Pretty in Pink, but she really is outstanding here as Darcy. Beautiful, smart, if it wasn't for the whole pregnancy bit, what young girl would't want to be her?! Randall Batinkoff is also nice as Stan. I am surprised this movie was not more popular at the time. I guess now it is a little dated, if you did not grow up with it as I did, but for anyone who likes a good 80's teen movie, can't really go past this. I guess it's a sign of my age that finally I can really relate to Mrs Elliot in this too. I never really thought about her, past being Darcy's mum, but on rewatch, I actually found her quite moving, as I realised her fear was coming from things that happened to her. Scary.

Gus Van Sant falls on the latter, with the films I have seen from him, so far, have caused me emotional alienation towards the characters he follows. It might be because he captures these characters with a story that does not rely on a basic three act arc and aiming for something more raw and honest.Mala Noche is another film from the director that deals with homosexuality, but like My Own Private Idaho, the film does not judge the characters for their sexual preferences, instead they are treated like any other person; focusing more on how their personal journey affects them at an emotional and intimate level rather than viewing them from a spectator's perspective. I never found myself bored of its Walt's journey, the protagonist; a story of obsession and love towards an individual who doesn't share the same feelings, but the film also does not put me in a state of thought or emotional movement that I would have hoped from such a personal story.The film displays characters that are not so perfect and easy to empathise with at times; our protagonist has flaws of his own, being firmly insistent in his desires, relentless of letting them go despite the other person already rejecting him, there is an obsession of fulfilling a sort of sexual fantasy that is tailored to his own psychological and emotional construct that it does create a feeling intimidation of those in the receiving end of it. Johnny, the young man that Walt was insisting in having sexual relations with, is also not a perfect person under Van Sant's eyes, with the character's flaws of opportunism being apparent in every scene; maintaining a relationship with Walt, drawing a line on what may be too far, but unwilling to drive himself completely away from him when constant sexual propositions are being raised as that would destroy an opportunity for security and shelter.The film's photography is dark and simplistic, possibly due to budgetary reasons; but Van Sant does not let this be a huge crutch for the film, finding clever ways of making the film feel stylish and at times emotionally effective even with its restrictions. The film's image is constantly filled with shadows, covering much of its environment, which Van Sant allows our attentions to remain on its characters. It is a strong move by the director and its director of photography, as it did make the film feel more personal and intimate; capturing characters in a light that speaks more of themselves internally than what they represent externally.Gus Van Sant is not an easy filmmaker to appreciate as he possesses a sense of style that requires repeated viewings and constant thought to find understanding and awareness in the subtleties of his work. Despite my not so high praises for his films, I am still willing to explore and watch more of his filmography; who knows, maybe his more well-known films like Elephant and Good Will Hunting might win me over.
