Second take on Brain Fire (he still hates it)

Critic from the Straits Times was obviously really bothered by the film.

  1. It appears that he thought the acting was good and the story competently told in the film. I guess the only problem he had with it on the whole was that the main character wasn’t a pathetic loser with a rotten life before she developed her condition/illness. I’m not sure I get the point of his review.

  2. Maybe she looks so perfect to inspire schadenfreude, not empathy. The whole think sounds a little weird.

  3. I agree. I’m not sure what his problem is with the film. He can’t sympathize with the main character because she had a nice life before she became ill?Would he have been happier if she wasn’t cured?

  4. Laying aside the moral aspects of it — dramatically speaking, it is true that since we know she survives it, the sense of tension in the story is lessened.

  5. T’is indeed a strange review. Really does not finish the thought, kind of like the critic.
