ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Full Circle
by Betty Jo Tucker

360, directed by Fernando Meirelles, disappointed me. Because I greatly admire this filmmakerís work -- especially City of God -- my expectations are always high for his movies. Plus, just look at the outstanding cast lineup for 360: Anthony Hopkins, Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Jamel Debbouze, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Ben Foster. And the diverse film locations (Vienna, Paris, London -- and my home state of Colorado) also had me excited. What could go wrong? Well, itís hard to put into words, so you know what Iím compelled to do whenever that happens. Sorry, dear reader, here comes another film poem.      


Around the world

360 goes.

A jumbled trip

with lots of woes.


Add love and lust

into the pot.

Betrayals too

canít be forgot.


A father seeks

his daughter dear.

He travels far

while facing fear.


Hopkins is great

in this key role.

He plays the part

with heart and soul.  


We need to see

much more of him.

Instead weíre rushed

by someoneís whim.


To other folks

in different towns.

Connecting them

caused many frowns.  


Thereís prostitutes

and men and wives.

Plus folks who want

to change their lives.


Donít blame actors

for this film mess.

They play their parts

with real finesse.


Ben Foster shines

as does Jude Law

in stand-out roles

Iím glad I saw.  


New faces here

are also fine.

Their names alas

seem hard to rhyme.


Cohesion is

the problem here.

The movieís point?

Itís not quite clear.


(Released by Magnolia Pictures and rated ďRĒ for sexuality, nudity and language.)
