Luca Guadagnino - I Am Love (2009)

The first half of this movie was boring, banal, bourgeois bullshit, cleverly disguised as a family drama...that also happened to make me very hungry and otherwise upset I wasted a good hour of my time. The latter half tries to rectify this by going in the opposite direction and was decent, but not enough to salvage the film from sinking in mediocrity. Also, the escalating tragic events were somewhat compelling, but nothing spectacular. Had the film started an hour in, and went from there it might have been a worthwhile experience. However, the first portion was just so flaccid, that not even Tilda Swinton's distinguished androgyny, convincing Italian accent, and overall solid acting, nor one rather sensual sex scene could save this one.
