This is 40 follows the story of married couple from Knocked Up as an attempt at a realistic recreation of what it means to be 40. Director, Judd Apatow, manages to take us through the motions middle age life by highlighting how demanding day to day life is, daily. A tad long and without a very strong story line, This is 40 is still an easy way to pass the time, when you have the time.

Set in modern historical theater, Shakespeare opens us up to one of his famously known poetic and dramatic theater plays Timon Of Athen.

Timon a wealthy, generous, flamboyant London based gentleman, known for his weakness of a willing heart of giving. As a result everybody wants to please him to get more. We then get introduced to one man that seems to differ from the rest ‘Apemantus’, he doesn’t seem to be interested in Timon’s wealth but his well been, worried about the outcome of Timon’s lifestyle of spending and giving, he alerts him of the risks of the outcomes but Timon is too busy pleasing friends to listen.

He accepts art and jewels from one set of friends but because his too generous to keep anything to himself, he gives them all to others.

We also get to meet Lucilius, Timon’s servant who is attracted to the daughter of the old Athenian. The man is not pleased by the affection but Timon pays him to accept the marriage all in the name of peace.

The Academy Award winning film, A Separation is an honest observation of people. This film is raw without being harsh. The intensity of experience is expressed in the very simple way of displaying (seemingly without motive) the causes and effects of how people’s decisions affect each other.

Accomplished with a compassion for each character’s plight, the craftsmanship in pulling off this story is artful. The portrayal of these characters is masterful; the actors truly appear to live their roles. It is a film that encourages the audience to have a greater depth of understanding for people and forgive them for their mistakes no matter how much we want to find someone to blame. It implies that people are innocent while the rigidness of the structures of our beliefs is what is truly flawed. Writer, producer and director, Asghar Farhadi, could be seen to suggest a solution. by using the film itself as a metaphor for bare honesty that holds everyone responsible but no one to blame, a fair judgement can be made.

Judith Crist, one of America’s most widely read film critics for more than three decades and a provocative presence in millions of homes as a regular reviewer on the “Today” show, died Tuesday at her home in Manhattan. She was 90.

Ms. Crist came to prominence when film was breaking with the conventions of the Hollywood studio era while experiencing a resurgence in popularity. She championed a new generation of American directors like Steven Spielberg and Woody Allen and new actors like Robert De Niro and Faye Dunaway.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Ms. Crist reviewed films for Coming Attractions magazine. She continued to write on other topics, including an article on TV dinners for Gourmet magazine in 2000.

Ms. Crist published a collection of reviews, “The Private Eye, the Cowboy, and the Very Naked Girl: Movies From Cleo to Clyde” (1968) and edited, designed or contributed to several more books.
