I was blessed with the beautiful opportunity of watching this movie at a festival. I was dazzled by the flow of the story, the subjects, the intertwined destiny of the characters. From my point of opinion I advice you: don't belive that bunch of smug critics. They don't know what they are saying. They are stuck in a era of superheroes, superstars, supershine movies. Make your own destiny. Watch this movie. Watch a movie no matter what the critics say. Do not trust them. Anymore.
The Vanishing of Sidney Hall (by TheRadiobox)
This film is, quite frankly; nearly a masterpiece. Don't trust the critics on this one, it's nowhere even close to being bad.Really, it contains some of the most darkly beautiful subject matter that can be brought to film; in loss, love, tragedy, discovery, and recovery. Within each of its three subplots there is always a looming anxiety created by the film's atmosphere. Filled with literal and metaphorical darkness with a few rays of light and hope.The Vanishing of Sidney Hall isn't meant to be uplifting, nor is it. But it is a story worth telling in that its characters, <more>
played excellently by the whole cast its events, and its grim outcome serve as a tale that hits the nail on the head with the message that not everything in life will turn out the way it's presented. With awe-inspiring production value that makes full use of its low budget and locations, spectacular acting, beautiful camerawork, and a score that sticks in the head for a while, The Vanishing of Sidney Hall is certainly one to see.10/10
This movie is unfairly flying under the radar. Logan Lerman is continuously showing what an amazing young actor he really is, I've said it before and I'll say it again Logan Lerman has a bright future in Hollywood as long as he doesn't screw it up. The movie reminds me much of the perks of being a wallflower I'm not sure if it's the plot, or just the actor but it is a must see. It is well acted and well written I very much enjoyed it and will be one of the best movies of 2018.
Unexpectedly BEAUTIFUL (by karenmsoto-32140)
I knew nothing about this film prior to watching it at Sundance for its premiere. I never have high expectations for movies, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself laughing within minutes of the film starting. I have a short attention span and the only thing I watched this year that kept my attention and made me concentrate was The People v. O.J. Simpson, American Crime Story. What I loved most about this film is that it isn't predictable, you had to piece the series of events together as the storyline evolved. I felt a roller coaster of emotions and towards the end found <more>
myself in tears. Definitely worth seeing and I look forward to watching it again.
With an excellent cast and compelling storytelling, Sidney Hall takes us through three different time periods of the main character's life and does a great job interweaving the different periods and gives us a deeper look into the character as the story progresses.The film has an epic yet grounded feel to it, and one can't help but root for and feel for the characters. I was emotionally affected by the film, but also had moments of laughter peppered in too. The cinematography was beautiful and there are lots of surprises along the way, and they all pay off.The entirety of the cast <more>
give great performances. Nathan Lane is in his element and the moments between Michelle Monaghan and Logan Lerman cut deep. Elle Fanning and Blake Jenner hit heavy with their characters, showing all is not as it always seems on the surface.Kyle Chandler and Logan Lerman really go for it and dig deep, and their scenes together really shine.I found myself laughing and crying throughout the film and am really happy to see that these types of films are being made. If you like stories that make you think and really dig deep, go watch this film.
An exception tri-linear character study w/ outstanding performances both in front of & behind the camera. (by madman82592)
I saw this film at its premiere at Sundance and having gone in with no knowledge of the production or any expectations whatsoever I can honestly say to you that this film was AMAZING and HEARTBREAKINGLY BRILLIANT. From the get go, this all-American on-the-road tale told through THREE different timelines had me HOOKED. Writers Sean Christensen and Jason Dolan create a narrative that is part detective cat-n- mouse, part suburban tragedy, as well as being an immensely effective dramatic character examination. Their DP Daniel Katz presented their story through a lens that reminded me of the <more>
classic American Beat Novels that surely live and breath within the films protagonist. Not only did Logan Lerman give his strongest and deepest performance to date but Blake Jenner & Kyle Chandler & Elle Fanning can she do any wrong?! stole the show in their supporting roles. It's a film deftly crafted with heart & nuance - and it finales at an emotional crescendo where few films do. It's a film for the mad ones to quote one of the films Inspirations . I could go on and on about how important and brave and sincere this film is - but why don't you just go see it for yourself, eh?
Gee, actually a real movie to comment on! (by shil0500)
If you are tired of all the blue screen, green screen super female hoopla. Watch this real movie that will give you a ride & make you have some conscious thoughts about life, love, happiness & tragedy. A well written & acted story from start to finish. No spoilers here. The editing was amazing as it would give you a piece that kept you wanting more faster. You have to watch, listen & give your attention to a deserving story movie! Relax, pause & reflect upon things to look forward to as you enjoy your 2 hours of escape into Sidney Hall's life. Enjoy
Excellent film!!! (by gregoryrjordan)
After reading some poor reviews about this film I felt compelled to come to imdb and write a review. I watched this film last night and thought one thing throughout: brilliant. I will not go into too much detail but the way the story unravels is rather unique and the acting is very strong all around. I thoroughly enjoyed the screenplay and cannot remember when a film caught me this off guard. I laughed and even got choked up at parts of this film. It just pulls you in from the get go. It was a great change of pace from the rest of the garbage being released these days.
I loved this movie SPOILER ALERT (by AmandaCryer)
Let me just start by saying this - I generally don't prefer dramas, as I often find them slow. Don't get me wrong, dramas like Elizabeth, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Once Were Warriors, Almost Famous, The Danish Girl, Little Miss Sunshine...these dramas really moved me. There are other dramatic films I love as well too many to list here . However, I find MANY dramas to be way too slow for my liking and therefore, this particular genre is rarely my first choice when selecting a movie to watch. I'm guessing I'm in the minority with this personal <more>
preference. But, I don't really care.I wasn't expecting Sidney Hall to be great. I had heard what the story was about, so I knew it would be good, but I also knew it was only Shawn Christensen's second feature film as a director. I expected something good, something decent. I never expected, however, to be moved to tears. Actual projectile tears and sobbing.I'm not going to tell you exactly what this story is about. I recommend you see Sidney Hall for yourself. What I WILL tell you, is how it made me feel while watching it and the effect the movie had on me in general. This is how I rate a movie - emotional and thought provoking impact. So, let me go back...to the beginning of the movie. Almost right from the onset, I found myself laughing out loud and my constant giggling continued as the story carried on. The script is excellent and I found some of the conversations between the actors to be outright hysterical. Ever since I saw Birdcage, Nathan Lane has always managed to bring a huge smile to my face. And he did that again here in Sidney Hall. Lane is an exceptionally talented comedic actor and he appears to do this effortlessly. He just IS that funny. All of the actors did an exceptional job in this film. Michelle Monaghan's character portrayal of Logan Lerman's mother filled me with rage. And Logan Lerman, Blake Jenner and Kyle Chandler's performances were outstanding. Their story arcs and personal struggles in Sidney Hall consumed me.Moving on to my projectile crying - Again, I didn't expect this movie to be great, so I thought it was safe to put a lot of makeup on before going to the premier. I simply did not anticipate this film having such an emotional impact on me. I was so, SO wrong. I had one napkin in my purse...just one, and I needed several more to soak up the tear filled mascara that continually streaked down my face. But the woman sitting next to me a girl friend of mine was crying so hard as well, that I felt compelled to tear my ONE napkin into pieces so she could have some relief, too.I saw Shawn Christensen's raw talent as a director and actor when I watched his short film Curfew. It was impressive, to say the least. I also watched his first feature film Before I Disappear and while I did LIKE the latter, it didn't jump off the screen for me. Don't get me wrong, Before I Disappear isn't a bad movie I've seen a lot of BAD movies . It was good, but in my personal opinion, it wasn't great.In Sidney Hall, the story, the acting, the camera angles, the music composition, the EMOTIONS Christensen captured and evoked from those actors...ripped my heart right out of my chest. I have never personally experienced exactly what Sidney went through, but I related to him and what he was dealing with on so many different levels. This story broke my heart into pieces when I realized the film was going to end with him dying. I thought, no f*cking way!! This guy HAS to have SOME relief, SOME good, positive, happy things happen to him....before he leaves us. But Christensen and his writing partner, Jason Dolan, didn't do that with Sidney Hall. This movie wreaked havoc on my emotions. Sidney's story didn't just grab my heart out of my chest...it stomped all over it. And for this, I'm GRATEFUL. While I love happy endings, I respect and admire directors and writers that have the courage to withhold spoon-fed happiness as the story comes to an end. In my opinion, this takes guts. I watch a lot of movies. And I tend to watch the movies I like more than once; sometimes, even many times. Before writing this review, I wanted to get a fairly accurate account of just how many movies I watch a year. Last year in particular, I watched between 80-100 movies, give or take. There are a considerable amount of good movies out there and there are even great ones that have you thinking about them for days, months and even years after seeing them.Sidney Hall is one of those great movies. I saw it over a month ago and I still think about it. The story is still present in my mind. It took my breath away. Maybe that sounds like a cliché...but again, I don't really care...because it's the truth.Thank you to the director, writers, actors, and to everyone else who worked on this film. I thank you for stomping on my heart and for what you all gave me and my friends the night I saw the movie...and for what you gave so many of us with Sidney Hall. I'll be watching this film again and again...and again.
