Black Mountain Poets full movie review - I enjoyed it, but others did not. Some sound issues should have been fixed.
I thought the performances were very good and the story believable. The mic sensitivity was to high in some scenes, voices distorted in a few others and the musical sections were way to loud. This should have been run through a sound stabilizer.
There were some nice unexpected twists for a love story of sorts. The human element is a hallmark of the film. The scenery is a joy and this is pointed out within the film.
(As a disclaimer, I am told I analyze films story line to much.). Do not read further I'd you are in t e majority that just blocks out the irregularities.
A few plot irregularities prevented me giving it an 8.5, like the opening scene which presents out heroines as possible environmental crusaders, then switches them to burglars and then con artists. The 3 are very different. Later the poet sisters, after an event, sit for 3-4 days for no known reason, when in walking distance to their destination. Then they display a large map, that previously was not explained in their possession. In another scene the GF tells the male lead that she wants to be romantic in the tents, but a short time later she demands her own tent alone? In another scene when the con is discovered, the male lead turns away, but...moments later he excepts the con sister without explanation. In the scene before the end, the police hold a cell phone with what appears to be a mans photo, but not the male lead, yet he and the con sisters run? The final scene is also a mystery. Like so many films things get cut and towards the end of the film, it appears they run of time and have to make adjustments.
