'By the Sea'
Turns out that simmering cinematography, an exotic locale, and megawatt star power aren't enough to make a film watchable. Angelina Jolie Pitt's directorial feature "By the Sea" is criminally dull because it mistakes artiness for artfulness and, amid its expensive-looking glamor shots, forgets to be about anything at all. Aside from one five-minute sequence involving a peephole in a hotel wall, "By the Sea" offers all the drama and insight of a two-hour De Beers commercial.
