Plot: a Young girl, with problems on all fronts, trying to deal not with the light strip in his life and to gain even some semblance of happiness.

For this straightforward description we expect a 2-hour drama filled with fight, as with inner demons, so and very real characters. The absence of normal relations with a mother, loneliness, a serious problem with health, complete uncertainty in his personal life, and more precisely the lack thereof, the desire to improve, but not the estate the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities. Have not Christine anyone who could see and hear her.

Of the case, it would seem that went to the mountain, when she starting to come to terms with imposed on it by the policy and now a colleague invites her to dinner, followed by a session of weird therapy for common 70 years. And when, apparently, life begins to improve character Rebecca Hall faced with a bitter truth of life, seeing it as a betrayal.

Cinematography, music: Picture music, look very dignified. The product has been made without any failures in visual aspects, the costumes, scenery, make-up — it looked pretty authentic.

acting not no complaints. Rebecca Hall give 100%, her character really wants to survive. And you may not always understand that occurs in her head, for the development of this character is still want to watch. Michael Hall, Tracy Letts Maria Dizzia did his roles on cheers.

Summary: bad directing + good acting = a quality product.

However, it is not that the film that will make you "stick" to the screen. The narrative is leisurely, and psychological pressure or discomfort, if you like, begins to overtake you closer to the last 15 minutes.

This is one of the examples "aftertaste" from the movie "brighter" than the film itself. Although, to"finish" this movie is more appropriate epithet "dark". But this, of course, worse than he gets.

After looking at  the"right" audience will definitely be food for thought.

Christine Chubbuck — experienced, but still a relatively young journalist, is seeking the right solo to lead the evening news, read the standard program, pulls a gun and shoots himself in the head.

There are many reasons for which you want to look at the picture, the story is known in advance and, lecutres this, we can safely say that one of these reasons — Rebecca Hall. This well known in Hollywood actress starred in woody Allen and Ben Affleck, have Ron Howard and Stephen Frears ' have Christopher Nolan and Steven Spielberg, but to really show their dramatic abilities are not possible. Role in"Christine" — the highest point in the career of a Hall, a truly comprehensive and a Grand entry into the image makes this role of monumental and only the academicians know why she was not at least nominated for the Oscar.

Christine — extremely lonely girl, in 39 still a virgin. Lives with mother, but she constantly smokes pot and thinking about how to bring a new boyfriend into the house, confidently forgetting that it is still and the daughter with his inner demons. In my personal life calm, to it shows the interest of a colleague at work, George, but it all same with mutual interest, afraid to build a serious relationship. The chief constantly demands hot news, trumpeting about the killings and the bloodshed, for the ratings reached the peak low and need to rise with knees. And then there and pain in the abdomen, Kristin inquire about that need to remove the ovary, the minimize the possibility of having children in the future.

Antonio Campos fit in 2 hours the last week of the life of a young journalist who determined its a fateful decision. It shows real grief Christine as a reporter who is desperately trying to be out policy channel, to do really interesting stories, a story about the ordinary people. She wants to increase and leave a provincial town in Baltimore can it be all career dreams, but instead hypocritical colleagues working in any way trying to do what same thing very logical, but Christine ain't understand. He does not understand and does not want to understand the world around, it doesn't want to open to anyone but children with disabilities in children's hospital, where it comes to play puppet skits. It doesn't want to go to the gynecologist and asks for help from a friend of the child's pediatrician. She wants to remove the blood and violence, to artificially stir up interest in the news. All these events show how Christine confidently and without turning back down to depression do not want it. We have before us a terrible picture of man, the downward spiral of one woman that broke external factors and, in the same time, caution us, the audience, whose the problems seem insurmountable and whose personal deficiencies prevented to be in tune with a outside world.

The film can be found in the notes of feminism but first of all it's delicate and insightful story of one broken man, in which we can easily recognize a piece of yourself.

The Film Is Antonio Campos "Christine".

Biographical film about presenter /journalist/ Christine Chubbuck, who committed 15 Jul 1974 in Sarasota, /Florida/, the suicide of the live.

Antonio Campos, a young American filmmaker, in the age of Jesus Christ, screenwriter and producer. As the filmmaker has made a little less than a dozen movies.

Christine Chubbuck, a journalist, studied at the University of Miami, then in Boston University, after which he worked in the TV branch of the company Hey-bi-si in Florida, "Channel 40". Engaged in criminal Chronicles, did a report on local family fights, rapes, fights, robberies. In 29 years, faked his death to live in time morning show.

Because the movie glossed over the story, /and that is how it happened/ I allow myself a little Preface, /in there, and sorry/.

A month before that Christine Chubbuck took seriously to develop the theme of suicide. Invented the subject of the transfer the increase in the number of suicides. Interviewed the local Sheriff, who told details!!!/, as the need to commit suicide, according to his /recommendations!!!/, shoot in the head, Christine bought a revolver 38 caliber, and during the transfer of shot herself behind the ear. I watched documentary footage, /again in film/, the impression is that she wanted someone, something to prove. And yet I had the impression that it presents itself with the other side of the camera itself, watching his death. If not think this decision was not simple, and it came to him /on the table in front of Christine, lying to the smallest nuances spelled out a scenario of his own death/.

"In connection with the ongoing "Channel 40" policy, which implies the demonstration of the latest blood and guts in live full color, you will be the first viewers, which will be demonstrated by the suicide of the live".

The last words of Christian Chubbuck


What happened in the soul of Christine, we never know. I personally think that causes the death of Christine, something close to the causes of death of writer Yukio Mishima, and it is some part of it was the death of love for art. But the film is a completely different concept.

Let's go to the movie. Christian Chubbuck. /Rebecca Hall/, the young ambitious journalist, said to young early. It can not imagine my life without television /investigative journalism/. But the bosses have their own understanding of the current challenges to the same item discrimination /viewer requires the sight of blood/, not woman's work. And more personal issues, trouble with family, health issues /if it will do in the near future an operation have never will be children/ the love issue /29 she's still a virgin/. All bound in hard tight knot, the main thread which is working.

And the work is not glued. Christine tries to make a serious, analytical journalism, and the authorities need spectacles /if not fire blood/. Clash of vulgarity and high art is doing its destructive thing. And there is still the possibility of increasing, with the prospect of further professional growth,... bypasses.

Add to this time, /times/, I'm not going to list all the revolutionary appearing in the time I will only mention the era of the start of the video, /without which is now unthinkable journalism/ new horizons, new opportunities, time, ideas and experiments.

And here this time Christine did not can fit in, self-contained, puritanical upbringing, excessive demands for yourself, emotional instability, loneliness, and still, the total indifference of others. When every one for yourself.

And here then the question arises. Why?

Why do a job that in the best case will cause a skeptical smile? Why try to get to its foundations when this is not who share?

Why do journalism at order?

To make money, to flatter their pride, to bask in the glory. And no matter whether this? And from the point of view of the profession, and from the point of view of human, and from the point of view of the spiritual began, and from the point of view of eternity, finally.

For, as reads an old truth, all passing, and art is eternal.
