Way better than I thought it would be (by dinterpreting)
I can usually tell if I'll like a film in the first 5 minutes. This film had me at minute 1. All the actors are excellent. The themes are thought provoking, something I think just about everyone can relate to. We all have different memories of our childhood. One sister or brother remembers it one way, you another, and the parents yet another. I have found that over time I want to strengthen my memories, or at least have them be justified and validated. Perhaps we each begin justifying and validating our memories to fit a certain story. How often do our memories paint us in a better light <more>
and someone else in a less admirable position. Can we be unbiased in our memories?
I like the balance in "The Adderall Diaries" as well as performances of the director Pamela Romanowsky and artists James Franco and Ed Harris . The balance of between different way of seeing. We all may storytellers and we like telling the stories how we perceive and/or how we want to see the truth. We may sometime get closer the truth or we may create our own truth. The movie perfectly depicts this by keeping another well-created family story in the background. The story-telling way of the movie gives freedom to the audience without applying or imposing one way. Very successful <more>
direction and James Franco plays perfectly. No need to say how Ed Harris has been a shiny masterpiece. Thank to all.
Simple Father/Son Fractured Family Story - Simplistic - Profound (by fredgfinklemeyer)
02/13/2019 This movie's content is pretty profound without actually trying. It has an underlying sadness of truth between fathers and sons. Many times that love/hate never gets resolved. This movie reminds us of the good in life and helps to let go of the bad. It's really a subtle, kind of thoughtless process that evolves as you watch this movie. I'm surprised by the content within and equally surprised by the afterglow of thought as it winds down. For me, this was a pretty good movie, no Hollywood stunts, nothing really contrived, just a plain and simple story that comes across <more>
as real. I really liked this no flash/no glitz movie. Bon Appetit
Thought provoking film about personal narrative (by kay_rock)
The film is about personal perspective and how far we can delude ourselves about who we are and the events which created us. For such a tricky topic, I thought they did an excellent job. The catalysts and personal revelations were believable, and I found the pacing exactly right for this type of film.With each scene, the film both offers us information about the characters and invites us to question what we've been told. Finely nuanced contradictions kept me fascinated, waiting for explanations. When answers were presented, they were satisfying but also left me with the understanding that <more>
the story was far more complex than we could ever know, that truth was still and would always be subjective, and that the question of who are the villains and who are the victims could only be answered: "All of us."I don't know that it will appeal to everyone, but if you're a fan of psychological dramas not thriller, just drama , you will likely enjoy this as much as I did.Beware of the resulting soul-searching you might experience about who are the heroes and monsters in your own life story.
Why medium rare? Because I like it better than well done. This movie hits too close to home for many of the reviewers I can tell. Problem is that they are living it or agree with the abusive bullying lifestyle. It makes me sick to see 4 and 5 stars out of 5 for so many stinkers and this one gets low ratings. This isn't the best movie but it isn't a waste of time. Great cast and it is well made. Make yourself a drink and a smoke if you like and watch this one with your dog on a rainy. This is a tale about a guy that hates himself and was raised by a parent that also hated himself thus <more>
the vicious cycle of self hate and low self esteem. How can we learn to see life in a better way? How do we rewire our brains from a lifetime of conditioning in an abusive environment. Not every movie ends like a fantasy that is personally gratifying. Why? Because people do not make as many happy endings. If you want that to change make some effing happy endings and stop breaking people in half. That goes for women and men. Stop if you aren't too broken to pull it off.
Steven Elliot James Franco is a successful author writing about his messed up life caused by his father, who is now deceased. He has a contract for another book, but has writer's block. The murder trial of Hans Reiser Christian Slater accused of killing his wife no body found catches Steve's attention. Here he meets NYT reporter Lana Amber Heard who is an enabler in his pharmaceutical drugged filled life style complete with a desire for pain as foreplay. Things quickly change when dad Ed Harris appears at one of his book talks and throws the BS flag. Steven must re-examine <more>
his life."True Deception" and "The Adderall Diaries" are the same film. It is about selective or edited memories that we all have and when faced with the truth....well things sometimes change. The acting and drama was good, but the film lacked action or memorable scenes. The idea that things aren't the way they seem and the juxtaposition of Steven's life to that of Hans Reiser needed better clarification. I am sure the book did a better job. The film needed to be edited.Guide: F-word, sex, nudity.
