Movies: Haywire Punches Handsome Men In The Face

Soderbergh has always been a restless filmmaker, experimenting with genre and form, and Haywire seems to exist principally as areaction against the current state of action filmmaking. The subversions produce wildly uneven results. He completely rejects the predominant color palette of action movies (blue/gray) but chooses… yellow? My friend recently dubbed the movie "Jaundicewire" and he didn't mean it affectionately. Soderbergh's experiments within fight scenes mostly pay off though, especially the decision to hold each shot as long as possible without a cut. This allows you to actually see the fighting and believe in each blow; Fassbender sure can take a beating!

All of the experimenting with form though eventually feels like the movie's whole reason for existence. It's an experiment rather than an organic story just waiting to be told. Soderbergh is quite a mixologist — can't wait for Magic Mike! He shakes the action genre up but Haywire is rarely stirring.

 roadRASPBERRIES!!!!!!! Carol Channing turns 91 later this month so make sure to see CAROL CHANNING: LARGER THAN LIFE the first chance you get as celebration. The inimitable star recently lost her husband and their remarkable love story is but one fascinating part of this new comprehensive documentary by Dori Bernstein who is an expert on Channing, naturally. They're staggering the release date a bit due to Channing's recent loss (and other factors) but Towleroad readers in Los Angeles can now see the movie. It opens in NYC in early February. I saw the movie at the Tribeca Film Festival last year and Carol Channing was in attendance. During the Q&A she shared many of the same anecdotes we'd just seen in the documentary but with Channing, repetition proves surprisingly endearing. 

 roadBelieve it or not the Golden Globes red carpet did not contain every star on the planet. Over in Milan, Prada managed to snag several more stars who weren't Globe nominated: Adrien Brody,Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe, and Jamie Bell. They all walked the runway with professional male models. I still haven't forgiven Steven Spielberg for casting Jamie Bell in a leading role (The Adventures of Tintin) and then burying his face in CGI. Noooooooo. Never hide the Bell! He's much too pretty to hide with performance capture; some faces are meant to be shared with the world. 

 roadAWARDS MANIA! The Help just got another vote of confidence, this time from the NAACP who gave it several nominations. The lesbian drama Pariah (which is excellent) followed that Meryl Streep Golden Globe shout out with several nominations, as well. Actual Oscar ominations are out next tuesday morning but a few categories are already narrowed down like visual effects, makeup (I'm rooting for Meryl Streep's transformation into The Iron Lady even though I'm not crazy about the movie) and foreign film for which there are nine finalists including my #1 picture of the year the Iranian drama A Separation

Are you excited for Oscar season?

    Women going around beating up big strong men, what a crock! We’ve seen a lot of this in recent years, a faux offshoot of equality blather and it always leaves me scoffing. Who’s kidding whom? While I know some very fit and strong women who could beat up a certain man or two, short of paralysis in an equally fit man, they wouldn’t stand a chance, not even if they were stupid enough to try.
    Add to their general physical incompetence, a woman with the additional impertinence to actually strike a handsome man in the face (a handsome man!) is like adding blasphemy to the mix. McGregor, Tatum, Fassbinder? Don’t even think about it.

  2. jason says

    I have to agree with the previous poster. I’m sick of this “oh, look, I’m an empowered woman who beats up men” shtick of Hollywood. It’s typical liberal pandering. Imagine if it were a man beating up women. Would Towleroad be similarly disposed to waxing lyrical about it? I doubt it.

    I am well and truly over Hollywood’s pandering to the liberal notion that women who beat men should be glorified. Well over it.

  3. RobWest says

    I have no desire to see any of these guys get hit in the face, not even in the movies.
    It’s all a crock…

  4. uffda says

    Yes, now that I have also seen her (thanks Jason) I’m impressed, but, you know, I recently saw Captain America do a whole lot of ridiculous things as well because – IT WAS A MOVIE!

  5. devon says

    On the one hand, Colombiana 2: The Salt Identity looks terribad. Doesn’t even look good in that “so bad it ends up being cheesy fun” kind of way. Just bad.

    On the other, I’ve always wanted to see Channing Tatum get beaten to death.

    Decisions, decisions.

  6. says

    In a world where women are often the victims of some form of violence whether it be rape or physical violence there’s no need to have women being physically passive in films. Carano is believable as a woman who can fight. She gives and takes…and it’s believable. Unlike Angelina Jolie or Zoe Saldana…both who are too damn rawboned to be believable…Carano has trained for hand to hand combat and it shows.

    Finally it’s not like she is walking around just walking up to random men and saying ‘I am woman hear me roar!!’ and then she delivers a blow to their gut. They are all dangerous people…they kill for a living…there is no reason to believe that she’d be running with the big dogs and not be able to keep up.

  7. Gabe R L says

    Wow, some of you guys show your insecurities and sexism with those comments. Did a little girl beat you up?

  8. says

    Haha, Jaundicewire. Soderbergh’s cinematography gets tiring since he’s redoing the look of Contagion in a B-movie environment. But Carano still kicks ass.
