Closer 2004

Academy Award-winning director Mike Nichols follows the triumphant "Angels in America" with Closer. A bitingly funny and honest look at modern relationships, Closer is the story of four strangers (Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen) -- their chance meetings, instant attractions and casual betrayals. Set in contemporary London, Closer is funny and powerful, and reminiscent of such Nichols' classics as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Carnal Knowledge. (read more)

Closer Movie Review by Bobby B (1/30/2008)

CAA-MMOOOONNN!!! I mean, are you for real? If this is supposed to be the ultra-hip, exciting and brutal romantic battleground that is supposed to be contemporary London does it have to be so boringly filmed? Apparently the only reason to make this play into a movie has to do with dollar signs. Mike Nichols has nothing...

Closer Movie Review by Zara (12/30/2007)

The intro and closing music is so damn pretentious and annoying that I wanted to turn the movie off from the very start. Add to it Julia Roberts who has this off-putting ice-princess thing (kind of like the girl who used to be low on the rung and now she acts like she's super important and better than you, you know the...

Closer Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/25/2007)

This film has an amazing cast, great director and a cool idea, and it comes really close to being great.

Instead it gets caught up in how cool it is and never really allows us to like or sympathize with any of the characters.

With the exception of Natalie Portman, the actors never seem to be able to connect with who they...

Closer Movie Review by Jesse (3/17/2007)

This is a disturbing movie about sex, lies, affairs and everything else that destroys people's lives. The tagline for this film is absolutely perfect: "If you believe in love at first sight, you never stop looking." It's so accurate, it's scary. Mike Nichols helms this film and makes it very different than his previous...

Closer Movie Review by Ezra (2/16/2007)

This is perhaps the least romantic film of 2004, a straight-up bitter study of the effect time has on human relationships. A brutally honest film with brilliant dialogue and great performances by all four of its leads, particularly Natalie Portman, who makes up for her annoying turn in the overrated Garden State by pulling...
