Clothed bathtub sex and 9 other random thoughts during the Pitts' 'By the Sea'

These random things went through my head during the film starring Brad Pitt and writer/director Angelina Jolie Pitt. Caution: Mild spoilers included. Click here for the full review.

  1. “Roland (Pitt) drinks gin, Vanessa (Jolie Pitt) drinks white wine; why couldn’t it have been the other way around for a change?”
  2. “In this role, Jolie Pitt doesn’t walk so much as float, which works for the character.”
  3. “Really? A slow zoom in on her crying? Come on.”
  4. “The manager of this isolated French hotel has a daughter who lives in Chicago? Random.”
  5. “What would most people do if you saw that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt were watching you have sex through a hole in a hotel room wall?”
  6. “Roland calling himself an asshole reminds me that I can’t hear anyone talk about being an asshole on screen without thinking of ‘The Social Network.’ ”
  7. “What was Jolie Pitt called in the Sony hack? Oh yeah, ‘minimally talented spoiled brat.’ Ouch.”
  8. “When Roland says she’s smiling, Vanessa says, ‘Now my outsides match my insides,’ which doesn’t seem like something any adult would ever say.”
  9. “Maybe it seems erotic in theory, but would Roland really keep his clothes on when having sex with his wife in the tub?”
  10. “I really hope this doesn’t wind up involving Roland, a struggling writer, writing a book called ‘By the Sea.’ Ah, crap.”
