VGuru R (mx) wrote: We all love Julia Roberts right? Okay, just checking. With that, I shall talk about my most favorite Julia Roberts movie of all time: ERIN BROCKOVICH (2000), directed by Steven Soderbergh-also one of my favorite directors of all time. This is a movie that was fairly different from most of the major Julia Roberts that had come out before it like My Best Friend's Wedding or Pretty Woman. However, it features, in my opinion, her best performance of her career-she won an Oscar for Best Actress too, her only Oscar though. And she is also the most powerful character in the film, and in all honesty I don't think I would want to have an argument with Brockovich because I would lose almost immediately. I don't know if many know this, but the film is based on a true story and is apparently 98% true according to the REAL Erin Brockovich. And if you've seen the film: the real Brockovich comes as a waitress in a diner scene at the beginning. In the film, Roberts is a mother of three who is broke but gains a job at a local law firm-headed by Ed Masry (Albert Finney). While there she becomes involved in a real estate claim which evolves into legal battle against Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). Also, be cautious of hexavalent chromium: that is one of the side lessons I learned from the movie. The film also stars Aaron Eckhart (who would later be in The Dark Knight) as a biker. Just let that sink in.Now Steven Soderbergh is what I would like to call an enigma (sort of). I can never tell what type of movie he will do. I mean, after Erin Brockovich (a biopic) he goes on to direct Traffic (an intense crime drama), then the Ocean's Trilogy (crime comedies), then much later he directs Contagion (hyperlink-global-disease-drama), then Haywire (action thriller), and most recently Magic Mike (movie about male strippers). Nonetheless he's still a great director and as I said he's one of my favorites out there, one of the reasons being his range of films. I don't think Erin Brockovich is his best work but he definitely did a great job with it and he pulled out an amazing performance from Roberts, Eckhart, Finney, and also the lady who plays Berta on Two and a Half Men. FUN FACT: He directed Traffic the same year Erin Brockovich and was nominated for Best Director for both movies. However, Soderbergh won for directing Traffic and not for Brockovich, essentially beating himself. Unfortunately he's stopped directing films and has moved on to TV (watch The Knick; I haven't seen it but I heard it's good and it stars Clive Owen).Roberts was absolutely astounding as Brockovich, and like I said she was by far the most powerful character throughout the entire film. Brockovich was sassy, headstrong, yet still vulnerable and dramatic; overall a force to be reckoned with. I mean, this is a woman who has had a horrible marriage life, can barely keep up with her three kids, and has been vying for a job for months. And when she finally gets the job, ALMOST begging for it, that one file that falls into her lap changes her world and several others. It was nice to see how Brockovich was obsessed with winning the case and getting money for those cheated by PG&E, but at the same time she had to protect and maintain her family. Compared to Vivian from Pretty Woman and Beatrice Ocean from Ocean 11 and 12, I still think Brockovich is ten times more amazing than both characters (and know that I LOVE those other characters anyway). Can anyone really win in an argument against her? Probably, but their chances are fairly slim. Furthermore, I finally get to talk about Aaron Eckhart as a biker. This is the man who would later play Two-Face and Frankenstein! Nonetheless he was still awesome in the movie, and he has fantastic chemistry with Roberts. I still contend that he is an extremely underrated actor who has been in some bad movies. And of course many can confuse a bad movie with a good performance and vice versa; however this movie showcases why he's so much of a talent, despite being a tad bit overshadowed by Roberts. Albert Finney as Ed Masry was spectacular, and it was fun to see him and Roberts play off each other so well. Their relationship is also extremely interesting to see develop as Brockovich and him work together so much on the case. Though he hadn't won, Finney still got a well-deserved Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actor as Masry.The score and cinematography are both great, but I was personally surprised to find that Soderbergh had not done the cinematography for this film. He has done it for twenty of his films, but for seventeen of them he is credited under the alias PETER ANDREWS. I don't know why, but he has been using that alias ever since Traffic (2000). The best part about Erin Brockovich, other than the performances, is the script that these fantastic actors work with. The dialogue is natural and quirky, and offers up a lot of memorable lines such as "Oh I hate lawyers. I just work for them" or "That's all you got, lady. Two wrong feet in fucking ugly shoes". I do have a few issues considering the script seeing as how I personally thought Eckhart's character was underdeveloped and it took me some time to get into the story of it all as well.In the end, I really love ERIN BROCKOVICH, and it's all due to the spectacular performances and the great script; albeit I have issues with the character development. Again I believe that this is by far Julia Roberts' best performance of her career, but not Soderbergh's best even though he directed it very well anyway. It's sad that we do not see more of Julia Roberts these days, the last I remember her she was in August: Osage County (which not many saw) and Mirror Mirror (a random Snow White movie that I ignored because I decided to see Snow White and the Huntsman instead). Same with Eckhart, but that's more so to being in bad movies. Everyone who hasn't seen this movie should watch it and learn/remind themselves of how amazing of a talent Roberts is. Although having an extremely successful career, I still hope she will make a resurgence one day because she is so astoundingly good - 9.1/10
