- B. O. R. I. N. G! 3/25/2019 12:00:00 AM by mmay-72158
I'm literally sitting in the movie right now writing this review. Yes, it is so boring that I had to say it before it was even over. Don't worry, I'm not bothering anyone around me. There are only 3 other people here and 1 of them is checking Facebook.
Super slow... super pointless... good soundtrack. There you go, whole movie.
- A Very Disappointing Re-Make of the Chilean Triumph 3/28/2019 12:00:00 AM by VintageSoul56
The Chilean film had passion and very good acting, especially Paulina Garcia in the title role of Gloria. I connected with that film and with her. There was life in it. There was a lot of emotion and feeling. See the original.
I had been looking forward to Julianne Moore playing this role in the American version by the same director, Sebastian Lelio, as the original. She was a perfect choice. Well, the whole film felt flat. I didn't connect with it, her or with any of the characters. I was surprised because I like Julianne Moore, but she brought no emotion to the role. John Turtorro is another matter. I've just never liked him and he didn't disappoint.
It was just a flat, bland, unemotional film. I gave it 2 stars because of the music, Julianne looks fabulous in her dancing clothes and I felt bad for the cat.
- We Left... And I Care NOT How it Ended! 5/16/2019 12:00:00 AM by ccarr-89284
Julianne Moore is one of my favorite actors and she seems like a fine human being. We stayed 15 minutes longer than my wife wanted. She was done about 10 minutes into the thing and kept rolling her eyes as I urged her to hang on.Whatever the intention was for this film it was an epic fail. Boring. Tedious. Sad.Meaningless.

The best part of this movie was the trailer.Totally odd movie with multiple scenes of her singing in the car or showing her boobs. I had a tequila chaser after to get rid of the bad taste.
- A portrait of loneliness in an ordinary life 5/1/2019 12:00:00 AM by FrenchEddieFelson
Gloria is a fifty-something long-term divorcée, with two grown-up children and with a subdued professional life. She's even a young granny since a short time. In short, all lights are red. It's only missing menopause... And then arrives Arnold, a charming guy who turns out to be stuck within a castrating environment. This film is desperately pessimistic, despite the manifold disco hits, and reminds the universal difficulty of 'rebuilding' its life, following a divorce with child(ren). The duo Julianne Moore + John Turturro is stunning, knowing that Julianne Moore is gorgeous, as usual.
