This is the second movie in the last three weeks that I’ve reviewed with Jude Law portraying an sex crazed adult with a maturity level of middle school adolescent. The lives of Dan, Anna, Larry and Alice are all messed up, they have no moral compass and don’t think twice about lying and cheating. This film should have been rated NC 17. While it didn’t show sexual encounters, it discussed them throughout in graphic detail. And when I say graphic detail, I mean it. I’d be surprised if dialog is this graphic in an X rated film. “Try lying for a change, it’s the currency of the world”, a line Jude Law says totally sums up the additude of this film.
I can’t believe Julia Roberts would stoop so low as to even be in this film. This film wasn’t entertaining, it was depressing. It’s a dirty film and makes the viewer feel dirty and disgusted. I wish there was something positive I could say about this film because normally I really like Julia Roberts, but there isn’t. About as close as you will want to get to “Closer” is the next theatre.
