Halle Berry Bares T&A and gains a Golden Globe nod
Update: The buzz around Frankie and Alice looked good from the start and now she has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance. That’s par for the course if this goes forward because it is another negative portrayal of a black woman behaving badly.
Today might have been called
my fun with Halle Berry day. I was curious about whether or not she has had a nose job before. As her features fit right into those of the women in my family. And it looks like, yes…she did have rhinoplasty that looks like well, no rhinoplasty at all. That’s the point. Marilyn had her nose slimmed and I have thought of it too because your nose gets bigger when you age not smaller. So take a gander at this pic of Halle before and after. Her new film also starring Phylicia Rhashad opens in a couple of weeks. We think.
Here’s another pic from that flic based on a true story. Halle’s not gone mad she’s gone fishin for an Oscar.
Is this “not again?” with Halle as she has a new movie out and it has been years in the making. But according to the critics who thinks it works when they screened it and Halled bared more tits and ass than ever before…sold to the highest bidder!
Halle ought to be ashamed of herself. I hope she is not setting blacks back with this film. I helped invent the look of the 70s that is Kahil El Zabar and myself, and it has influenced the casual look that has become an American classic look. I think Halle gets that wrong. Hell, what am I saying I still have earrings from those days. They are white, made of wood and have an eye painted on each one. They are tear drop shaped and big but not huge like the ones she is wearing. She took the look over the top. But I could be wrong. I hope to get to see this flic. But for now here’s what she’s up to.
Although six scribes are credited with the screenplay usually predicts erratic story and mood swings, “Frankie & Alice” does not suffer from multiple writer disorder. Both clinically and dramatically, it’s an engaging titillation despite a somewhat flat last half-hour.
Throughout, its exhibitionist proclivities are evened-out under director Geoffrey Sax’s astute guidance and the intelligent, nuanced performances of Berry and Skarsgard.
In addition, the supporting performances are rock-solid, particularly Phylicia Rashad’s steadfast portrayal of Frankie’s supportive but enabling mother.
Scoped in a hard-noir style, with mean-streets Canada standing in for Los Angeles, “Frankie & Alice ” is a technically well-balanced entertainment.
here’s another review:
Frankie & Alice is a hokey old-school drama of multiple personality disorder based, in the tradition of The Three Faces of Eve and Sybil, on a real case study. Frankie is the presenting patient, a wised-up black stripper on the 1970s L.A. scene whose blackouts and violent personality shifts while bumping and grinding lead her to Dr. Oz (Stellan Skarsgard). He’s a white research psychiatrist, but he can’t be all square because he listens to jazz records and once studied the effects of LSD.
