"Writing is Easy, all you do is sit at a typewriter and bleed," Hemingway said. I was watching Hemingway and Gellhorn today, and found the filmaking and plot very artistic, in contrast to a NY Times review, which depicted Owen and Kidman as two dimensional. But I liked the way the film seamlessly transitioned between modern and 1940's sepia. I also liked the way in which typical love scenes were made into original, eclectic experiences. Nevertheless, the abuse of tobacco in the movie (Kidman constantly smoked), had me with an e-cigarette in hand, wanting to quit soon.
