Genre Grandeur – Infinite Polar Bear (2014) – Ten Stars or Less


For this month’s next review for Genre Grandeur – Boston Films, here’s a review of Infinite Polar Bear (2014) by Ryan of Ten Stars or Less

Thanks again to Ryan of Ten Stars or Less for choosing this month’s genre.

Next month’s Genre has been chosen by Vern of the Video Vortex. We will be reviewing our favorite Graphic Novels that have been adapted for the screen.

The one caveat is that it has to be based on a book that has been published.

Example The Killing Joke would be acceptable because it’s based on an actual graphic novel.  The Dark Knight would not because it’s based on characters and there was no book before the movie.

Here is what appears to be the official/unofficial list of film adaptations of Graphic Novels

Please get me your submissions by the 25th of May by sending them to Vernsworld@movierob.net

Try to think out of the box! Great choice Vern!

Let’s see what Ryan thought of this movie:

Infinitely Polar Bear Review

==================
7/10

Infinitely Polar Bear is a movie you have never heard of, let alone would actually watch. I took the time to watch this odd movie that is probably Mark Ruffalo’s greatest unknown performance to date. His lifestyle and medical condition is the real heart and soul of this movie about life in the 1970s. You may not fully understand everything that is going on and think that both main characters are complete idiots, but Ruffalo is able to make you see past all the flaws. This was the rare movie that really tries to showcase how tough life can be for people dealing with psychological issues.

  2. I HAVE seen this movie, I DO agree with you – and I would add that it is a true story – based on real characters. The writer/director – is actually one of the young girls depicted in the film and Mark Ruffalo is playing her real father who had this condition in real life. It IS a terrific performance.
