My moviegoing: 2004

from Patty Jenkins' Monster (2003)
There are several things to admire in this movie. I just wish I liked it more. Charlize Theron's performance didn't connect with me. To my taste, she's too earnest, and the work of her performance shows up on the screen instead of disappearing into the character. It's Acting instead of acting. Oh well. If actors followed my advice, they'd never get any Oscar nominations.
