MALCOLM AND MARIE - Review
MALCOLM AND MARIE
Release Date: February 5, 2021
Director: Sam Levinson
Stars: John David Washington, Zendaya
Plot: A couple argues through the night after a huge evening that will change their lives
Clint Says: A great film if you can handle people yelling at each other for 90 minutes
Zendaya has come a long way from her time as a Disney star, and she has made the most of her climb to the up. Now, thanks to her performance in this film, she has a legitimate chance at reaching the pinnacle of any acting career by winning an Academy Award.
Her performance is incredible throughout the film, but there is one scene in particular where she shows off her acting range in a jaw-dropping manner. I would be surprised if she doesn't get a nomination for all of the big award shows this year.
As for the rest of the movie, it is intense, exhausting, compelling, and hard to watch. If that sounds like a list of contradictions, you are correct. One moment you'll be hanging on every word, the next you'll be wishing it was all over because the arguing is incessant. There are many moments where you will think this is some of the best writing ever. Then there are moments where you will want them to stop talking because their nonsensical ramblings are hurting your brain.
For those of you that can withstand the barrage of insults and verbal punches, you will be treated to some of the best acting you will see all year. If constant arguing and yelling stresses you out, this is not the film for you.
