Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

I had the opportunity to partake in Tyson and Mark’s De Niro Blogathon, where writers watch a De Niro film they’ve never seen before and share their thoughts. Here’s my review of Silver Linings Playbook (along with some more general thoughts on De Niro’s filmography)

Review by Dave Crewe of CCpopculture




Robert De Niro is an undeniable icon of American cinema, an actor who casts a long shadow. He’s renowned as a versatile, idiosyncratic method actor who has given vivid life to some of the most memorable characters of the last half-century. It is nonetheless hard to deny that De Niro’s shadow has shrunk over the last decade or so, his reputation squandered on broad comedies and thin dramas. Silver Linings Playbook was, if the conventional wisdom is to be believed, a return to form for the man, earning him his first Oscar nomination in over a decade and critical acclaim.

  1. Loved this film. It was nice to see Robert De Niro return to “proper” acting as opposed to sending himself up in films like Meet The Fockers. In fact, I thought this was De Niro’s best performance in years.

    • It was clear he was actually trying rather than just cashing in, which is a nice change from a lot of his work preceding this. Thanks for the comment 🙂
