Valentine Catzeflis – Simple (2011) HD 720p
Gabby Douglas is a three-time Olympic gold medal winner in gymnastics. Her next challenge: coaching Jay Pharoah. Watch the video. Jackie works as a CCTV operator. Each day she watches over a small part of the world, protecting the people living their lives under her gaze. One day a man appears on her monitor, a man she thought she would never see again, a man she never wanted to see again.
However, the movie is morally bankrupt. It contains a lot of lewd content, including a graphic scene of pedophilia. For this scene alone, the movie becomes abhorrent. There is also plenty of strong foul language, much of it coming from the teenagers and children, along with underage drinking and smoking by both children and teenagers.
Here's what interests the supremely talented British director Andrea Arnold: ordinary people's lives, poised between transformation and despair; the dire landscapes of sub-middle-class contemporary existence; dirty, dangerous and exceptionally hot sex. Given all that, it might seem surprising that Arnold has virtually no profile in the United States: Her debut feature, the terrific Glasgow-set erotic thriller "Red Road," came and went briskly in , and her new "Fish Tank," which may be even better and has piled up various British and European awards, is likely to go almost unnoticed amid the blizzard of imports on the IFC Films slate. I'm telling you here and now to seek out "Fish Tank," either at a big-city theater or via VOD, because it's absolute dynamite. As cheesy as this is, you could say it combines the best elements of "Precious" and "An Education," and not be cheating.
