Geek Binge Reviews: Silver Linings Playbook

Geek Binge: Mental illness is always a tough subject to cover from a comedic standpoint; you always have to walk a tightrope between insensitivity and humor. It’s very easy to play it for cheap cruel laughs and very hard to make it enjoyable entertainment. Now with that out the way, David O’ Russell’s latest film, Silver Linings Playbook, is a character drama with a dark comedic streak about a guy just trying to figure out how to get through life that simply excels at walking that tightrope. (Cinema, The Silver Linings Playbook) 8.5/10
