El ladrón de palabras
El ladrón de palabras Rating: 50 out of 100 based on 25 reviews.
“El ladrón de palabras” embarca al espectador en un viaje que le traslada desde el París de la posguerra hasta la Nueva York de hoy en día para contar la historia de Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper), un joven y exitoso escritor que descubre el precio que debe pagar por plagiar la obra de otro cuando un misterioso anciano (Jeremy Irons) se enfrenta a él afirmando ser el verdadero autor de su novela y relata los hermosos aunque trágicos recuerdos que dieron origen al libro. Al comprobar que otro hombre ha pagado caro el tesoro que contienen las palabras de la novela, Rory hace frente a cuestiones como la creatividad, la ambición y las elecciones morales que ha hecho guiado por sus propios intereses.

An author (Dennis Quaid) approaches a podium before a packed house. He announces the title of the book he’s just written, “The Words,” and begins to read a passage. It relates the story of another author, Rory Jansen (Cooper).

Before I sat down to type out this review, I tried to remember just how I came across "The Words" and for the life of me, I can't. Ultimately I think it was a "happy accident" that came about during an afternoon of directionless browsing on the Internet.

The idiotic melodrama The Words is a maddening contradiction: a film about the publishing industry and a great literary fraud that doesn’t have a literary bone in its body or a thought in its pretty, empty little head. Though set in the literary world and

So much about The Words depends on a last-minute revelation and summation of the thematic meaning behind its trio of stories that everything beforehand is, by way of the nature of maintaining the central mystery, dramatically inert.

The closest thing to a point that I can find in “The Words” is when one writer tells another, “My tragedy is that I loved the words more than I loved the woman who inspired them.” That theme is worth exploring, but “The Words” doesn’t do it.

The Words is Brian Klugman's directorial debut, and -- not that I want to pile on the new guy -- it shows. It has all the emotional weight of a Lifetime Network movie though it desperately wants to deliver a Big Message about loss and roads not taken...

The Words is a movie of many stories, of a story within a story within a story, of layers, each different from the next with varying degrees of quality, at times hypnotic, other times drawn out, well acted by some, horribly by others.

A story within a story within a story . . . a series of life-altering coincidences . . . the kind of sweeping melodrama that belongs in the late-night lineup of Turner Classic Movies. The Words should be cloaked in cobwebs, creaking and squeaking...

Nicholas Sparks wasn't involved with the development of The Words, but he might as well have been. There's a distinctly "Sparks-ian" feel to the movie, and its awkward framing device recalls the one from The Notebook.

In "The Words," a man realizes he will never be a successful writer, so he does the next best thing: steals someone else's brilliant novel and puts his own name on the cover. Fame, fortune and a nagging sense of guilt follow.

It may seem like easy bait for a critic but the quote whores supplied a dozen or so words for the mysterious ads for the new drama “The Words” and so I’d like to play their little game. I have a few words of my own – “Dull.” “Inert.” “Pretentious.”

It will be interesting to see how THE WORDS plays with general audiences. It is a romantic tragedy about the life of being a writer, meaning that many reviewers may “get” what is going on here the way non-writers may not.

With its numerous epic pretensions,The Words is a film that sets a high bar for itself and for it to be judged. Yet, despite an intrigue-heavy trailer, rousing soundtrack and multiple Hemingway references, The Words misses a certain X factor.

Literary soapie The Words is mutton dressed as bespectacled lamb. Just because it looks like smarthouse fare doesn’t mean it is, and the proof is entirely in the plodding pudding. It’s the type of self-serious movie where people plaintively peer off...
