Genre: Biography, Drama

Also starring: Thomas Mann, Jenny Slate, Richard Armitage

Release date:

Director: Gerard Barrett


Description: One day, I woke up in a strange hospital room, strapped to my bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. My medical records—from a month-long hospital stay of which I have no memory—showed psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier I had been a healthy twenty-four year old, six months into my first serious relationship and beginning a career as a cub reporter at the New York Post..

First impression/review of Brain on Fire from the Press & Industry screening today at TIFF

>Susannah (played here by Chloë Grace Moretz, delivering one of her best performances)

>I’m sure there are some critics who would love to brand Brain on Fire as a “disease of the week” movie, but there’s something satisfying about Barrett’s approach.
>It works best whenever Moretz is on screen, and stumbles a bit whenever she isn’t, but on the whole it’s handled with a necessary delicate touch that makes it work quite well.

Watch the Brain on Fire Press Conference this Friday Sep 16th, 2016 at 10am EDT

Chloë will certainly be there (I've not been able to verify it yet, but she shoud be there, haha) and author Susannah Cahalan will also be there

A not so positive review from The Guarding giving Brain on Fire 2 out of 5 stars

>The initial signs of trouble are convincingly played by Moretz and smartly paralleled with the frantic nature of the city around her.

>But as the drama ramps up, we’re stuck firmly in dreary TV movie territory and Moretz starts to struggle with the challenges of the role.
>As a child actor, her precocious nature and startling maturity made her an engaging and unique screen presence but she still relies on a slightly over-emphatic form of acting that makes the breakdown scenes here feel false.
>She’s saved somewhat by a strong supporting cast
>The third act, based around trying to diagnose her affliction, is lacking in the emotional involvement and suspense that’s needed to make it soar.
>Moretz hopefully has an adult breakthrough role in her yet but this clearly marked awards-bait weepie is sadly not the right one.

>As a child actor, her precocious nature and startling maturity made her an engaging and unique screen presence but she still relies on a slightly over-emphatic form of acting that makes the breakdown scenes here feel false.

This astue assessment of her acting applies to both "The Guardian", "the Equalizer", "If I Stay" and "5th Wave" as well. She has very little in the way of naturalistic or instinctual acting skills. Compare her preformance to the Russian girl who was murdered in Equalizer. Chloë seemed like TV acting, the Russian girl was an ctress that found the note. On the other hand, in the hand of a superior ditecto like in "Hugo " or "Clouds of Sils Maria", the director is savvy enough to lead her to the note. I think it may have been her work in "Brain on Fire", not the certainty of a tepid "Mermaid" that led to this reassessment. This is good. This means Choe is not going be a Child Star who crashes and burns because she cant accept not making the transition. On the grace note here, she is an incredible model do to her mobility of expression and "look". I want her to make it in Hollywood, but I want her to be happy more.
175542Denmark ee4f
Well, like any other actor Chloë has her forces and her weaknesses. She's clearly the strongest when playing the silent, melancholic type (fx. Let Me In) or the action, tough girl type (Fx. Hit-Girl - not Mindy), but she also got the great skills at playing crazy (Clouds, Dark places) and cute (Fx. Laggies)

But yeah, I'll agree that playing normal, or naturalistic as you say, seems to be one of her weaker spots.

But it's hard to improve if you don't try roles that challenges your weaker points. And Chloë's been doing a lot of different types of roles, so naturally some will be hits and other misses in regards to her acting skills.

But maybe, as you say, that is what she is assessing and what she means by being more picky (I wish we knew more what the hell she means sometimes, so we don't always have to speculate). Maybe now is the time where she'll go: Okay, I've done this and that worked great. I've done that and it didn't work out so great. So maybe I should focus on the aspects where I'm best.

Chloë just needs to go back to the type of roles and characters that suits her acting skills the best (and of course also suits what she wants to portray). More silent sadness or more action tough, snarky roles.
175558Italy 3c18
At least it don't seem a complete disaster "à la Neighborns 2". It's always better to see Chloë in a movie like this, don't you think? Anyway I prefer this direction instead of the romcoms one. And one day… she will surely star in some sci-fi blockbuster in the style of Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Star Wars or something like that. I'm sure about that!

"And one day… she will surely star in some sci-fi blockbuster in the style of Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Star Wars or something like that. I'm sure about that!"

She already did that in CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA ; )
175561Italy 3c18
Ahahahah that's true, but I always hope she will become famous for something really mainstream. Wait, let me explain: in fact, I prefer when she act in more deep movies, like Blood Story / Let Me In. But, it will be awesome if just for ONE TIME (after Kick-Ass, obviously!) Chloë will starring in something like Avengers, or Harry Potter, Hunger Games… not because they are my favourite type of movie, but because that will help her to become more know around the world. Unfortunatly, here in Italy only 1 on 100 know who she is. :-(

They more or less focus on the movie plot and writer/director Gerard Barrett not mentioning Chloë at all (other than mentioning she plays Susannah).

The Hollywood Reporter with a rather bad review

>If you're going to ask an audience to accompany your lead character down a disorienting spiral of memory lapses, paranoid episodes, manic mood swings, hallucinations and debilitating fatigue, it's generally a good idea to make them care about her first.

>Brain on Fire just sits there, inert and uninvolving.
>the film just gets stuck in a repetitive pattern that drains rather than builds tension, a problem inherent in both the writing and editing.
>The film's chief selling point is a pinball-ricochet performance from Moretz that hits all the marks and yet is never wholly convincing — she's more morose than vulnerable, more sullen than terrified.

>Chloë Grace Moretz stars in a laughable portrait of a young woman suffering from a mysterious ailment

>Moretz is a fine actress who comes across as little more than a puffy-looking Cabbage Patch Kid here

I honestly believe that BOF will be a good movie.
Anyway, at least even them define Chloë as a "fine actress"

>If ever there was a movie for Lindsay Lohan — who followed a similar path of promise, meltdown, and tentative recovery — this is it

>Moretz is a fine actress who comes across as little more than a puffy-looking Cabbage Patch Kid here

What I don't understand is "similar path?" Lindsey was actually acting as a prostitute taking Calls,[yes. Don't ask] and the drugs and booze, where are they? Look at Chloë's accomplishments and lifestyle. That is unexpected from from Variety. Then again "Stephen King said last year that he thinks Lindsay Lohan is perfect for the title role in …. the remake of Carrie."

Interesting read, not just because he's a producer on Brain on Fire, but also because the article contains some view of the film producing process, which considering Chloë's recent turn of events is rather interesting.

Review: 2 out of 5

Brain on Fire Poorly Adapts an Interesting Story
Television would be a better fit for this unfocused narrative.

>Chloë Grace Moretz is pretty good in the lead role, ably handling the wide range of behavior and emotion that the illness brings to the protagonist. But the writing isn’t really good enough for the actress to really make something out of this performance.

>Brain on Fire doesn’t quite feel like it belongs in cinema. The real facts of this story are pretty compelling, but the movie isn’t able to adapt those elements into compelling filmmaking. It feels like a TV movie at best, and in its weakest, it doesn’t even really rise to that lowered standard.

Where have I heard, "Chloë is as good as possible in this fumble of a film" before? Ought we make a list?
190339Italy ca33
Well, unfortunatly the same can be said about so many good actors today.
Even Al Pacino have star in horrible film, or Robert DeNiro, or Alicia Vikander.
Chloë is a very good actress, girl and person in general.
She will never become a AAA list celebrity, maybe, but I will forever love her.

It's obvious that this wasn't a movie with a multi-billion dollar budget. With that being said, you wouldn't feel like it's a "cheap" movie either cause, with Chloë biases aside, the actors were actually good. What really sucked me in was the story line. It made me keep thinking "What would I do in that scenario", "Oh no, what happens next". It kept me at the edge of my seat at times. Other scenes were hard to watch but for different reasons as compared to If I Stay. All in all, again, with Chloë biases aside, it was a really entertaining movie. You'd always wanna see what happens next.
