The role requires her to walk a tight rope to avoid -like caricature without giving Maria too much emotion or sensibility, as if a relationship could ‘cure’ her.
Even when the story hits its dramatic climax near the end, Borbély does not veer outside the character’s boundaries, reacting at one point in a matter-of-fact way to something awful that it became a darkly humorous moment instead.
Enyedi’s script offers a meditation on loneliness, especially for people who were, perhaps, not made for this world, like Maria, or who have grown tired of its letdowns, like Endre.
Keith Law: Any fan, reader, or Twitter follower who accuses me of hating his favorite team is telling me one thing: He’s dumb.
(It’s always men, BTW.) It’s truly a lack of intelligence – there’s no way I could do this job effectively if I carried actual biases against any organizations.
I am interested in your take on Jorge Lopez, who made your top 100 2 years ago and now has fallen completely off your lists.
Do you believe he has a future in MLB, in what role? Keith Law: Still think he’s a big league starter, maybe more of a back-end guy than I once believed.
Rocky Mountain High: Whom do you expect to give more of a push to Arrenaudo in the future, Welker or Vilade? Scott : With the Mets making every possible roster move to banish the newly sculpted Dominic Smith to Vegas where he has already proven he can rake (and get himself out of shape), if you were running a rebuilding team would you be aggressive and make them an offer they can’t refuse? Keith Law: I think inserting a LHB for its own sake just ends up costing a better hitter at bats.
Not saying they take the job from him, but the guy that gives management thought about the next Rockies 3B. If they were L-L-L, that would be a different story.
He had family issues that probably contributed to his 2016 season – a sick kid, I think? Keith Law: Deep, no, mostly because I haven’t loved enough of her singles for that. BE: Do you find the “you hate my team” comments more amusing or irritating?
– but also I hope the Brewers learned not to send pitching prospects to Colorado Springs. Rob: A couple months back in a chat you said ” I like music that’s interesting, that boasts something like strong melodies, intelligent lyrics, technical proficiency, new sounds or textures.” Have you ever done a deep dive on Regina Spektor? As a Tigers fan, its amazing how much negativity I read about you, even though you spent 5 pages of Smart Baseball supporting Tram and Lou.
The script does lose steam a little in the final quarter of the film, because the setup is so strong – two people with no apparent connection are simultaneously dreaming the same dream, in an otherwise rational world where such a thing should be impossible.
