The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud | The Clapper Bored

The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud

There is something wrong at the heart of this movie. What should have been a troubling portrait of post traumatic stress disorder is pawned off as a soppy romance. A character who suffers for five years from complex multiple hallucinations is relegated to ‘troubled teen’. Ok, so that troubled teen is Zac Efron so no one really cares if he goes out into the woods every evening to play catch with his dead brother, right?

A premise as fundamentally weird as this should make for a more interesting film. The trouble is that the filmmakers are determined to sell their popcorn to 13 year old girls, rather than serious punters. The British re-titling from ‘Charlie St.Cloud’ to ‘The Death and Life of Charlie St.Cloud’ hints at an attempt to draw a more arthouse crowd, but this attempt is stunted by the clichéd dialogue and the total lack of subtlety.

Charlie St.Cloud is billed as being a showcase for Zac Efron’s hitherto undiscovered acting talent (except for in the little seen ‘Me & Orson Welles’) however he seems to be blighted by ‘Tom Cruise Syndrome’ where however well he acts and however hard he strains to make those tears flow, everyone’s just going to get lost in his big, blue eyes. All the same he does a decent job of endearing a totally insane character along with his unusual looking squeeze and token British friend.

Not a very good movie, especially if you’re older than 14 and can comprehend, even if it’s just for a second, how deranged this Sixth Sense-esque premise really is.

  5. Thank you for this article. Waiting for another one.

  6. I do like the manner in which you have framed this particular challenge and it does indeed supply me personally a lot of fodder for thought. However, through everything that I have witnessed, I just simply trust as the actual feed-back stack on that men and women continue to be on point and not start on a soap box associated with the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this fantastic piece and even though I do not necessarily concur with this in totality, I value your point of view.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  8. With almost everything which seems to be building within this particular area, a significant percentage of perspectives happen to be quite refreshing. Nevertheless, I beg your pardon, because I do not give credence to your whole suggestion, all be it refreshing none the less. It would seem to us that your remarks are not completely justified and in simple fact you are generally your self not fully confident of your point. In any event I did enjoy looking at it.

(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
