MooPig Movie Reviews: The Soloist

What's the Problem: you got iron skillets over your ears?
by Pat Darnell and the Moo Review R's

Reeding, 'riting and 'rithmatic... has a sort of arrhythmic rhythm to it; don't you think? We like this movie The Soloist because right from the very beginning Robert Downey, jr, falls on his face.

We, the audience, do not get a report whether any of Downey's brain cells are destroyed, but he goes ever forward in depiction of Steve Lopez, and his face heals through the movie. This time Robert Downey jr is a walking rehabilitation. Extraordinary many think; very strange how cinema captures truth despite its concupiscence for glamor and tripe ... no? And this time cinematography is on Skid Row, Los Angeles. LA boasts 90,000 homeless, with a budget of about $16,000 per unfortunate. LA's total is greater than the sum of homeless in all other large cities: Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Houston and Miami. Ouch !!

RD, jr, as Steve Lopez is a fidgety top notch LA Times reporter who does a city beat kind of column. He has deadlines ... as he randomly explains often to the next character we will meet, homeless musician Nathaniel Ayers, played by Jamie Foxx [heir to the Foxx fortunes].

Ubiquitous phrases -- ... Gimme the Key ... occurs just beyond midpoint of the footage, when Nathaniel Ayers is offered a room with a view by the Housing Authority of Greater LA. It is a critical point as the key becomes aberrant radical symbol of disorder in the musician's ordered disorder... okay? You see it is a movie of two live personalities and their modern true story, and will have long term affect on modern society, much like Star Wars had.

Rated: PG-13 for thematic elements, some drug use and language -- Run time: 1 min 49 secs Genre: Dramas -- Theatrical Release: Apr 24, 2009 Wide -- Box Office: $31,670,931

Rotten Tomato writ this in their review of Soloist:
Foxx is both heartbreaking and life-affirming as Ayers, whose undiagnosed schizophrenia drove him away from Julliard ...whose fierce independence keeps him on the streets. Catherine Keener, Lisa Gay Hamilton, and Tom Hollander appear in supporting roles.
MooPig's new Chief Movie Reviews Editor, Rubbum Toogetter, ignores conventional review of this particular movie. He says: "Rotten Tomato has it so wrong that they might qualify for the government canned goods bailout for tomato sauce."

"What ever do you mean, Rubbum?" said Lubbum N'leebum.

"It's like this; Ayers is a receiver of sounds. It is a constant unspoken theme for the movie. He hears voices in his head, not just a few but the entire city populace speaking and jiving all at once," explains Toogetter. "Meanwhile bog-trotter Robert Downey jr skips around saying 'Hey Nathaniel, life is a bowl of cherries, so why are you so far down in the pits?'"

"That is when Nathaniel explains to knucklehead Lopez, 'What -- do you have iron skillets over your ears? Can't you hear all that?'" concludes Toogetter. "Now tell me that you never been in city tunnels, stations or train cars, situations where acoustics make you want to get away? That is the condition of Ayers who goes down to the white noise of the passing cars of lower LA avenues. He needs to cancel the caucophony of blithering west coasters with white noise so he can play his cello."
