Most of the situations you mentioned were minor irrelevancies...I didn't even notice the business with her hair until the second viewing, after Neil Degrasse Tyson had primed me to look for it.

On the other hand, this:

is a critical plot point, made no sense, and pulled me right out of my suspension of disbelief to give it a giant WTF. It's a really, really basic bit o' science that they utterly botched. Reminds me of another movie (Contact? can't recall right now) where at the beginning of they film we are alerted to the ominous emergence of a meadow at the North Pole. Which would in fact be incredibly ominous, since the geographic north pole sits in the middle of thousands of square miles of open ocean. Of course they meant the South Pole, but screwing up something as simple as "is there land at the north pole" made me think that the movie was made by a bunch of imbeciles who flunked 3rd grade geography.

Because it was a visual movie the hair bugged me a little. Especially as we are so accustomed to seeing floating hair and it could have been dealt with easily. Had it been cut it would have provided a great talking point for the talk show circuit.

The severing of the line didn't faze me as it was necessary to make the narrative point. 

 

Funny the shot that really stuck with me was the...

...last shot of Bullock. Hell of a thing in IMAX.

Heartbreaking, uplifting, infuriating...and everything in between. Powerful look at the final chapter of Levon's life.

Slap Shot - Hadn't seen this in years. It's like a time capsule from a much manlier time than our own.

Not sure what a plotless movie is. Baraka? Head?

Really? Annie Hall and Citizen Kane tell you exactly where the plot will go right from the start; the former tells you the protagonists broke up, while the later says the main charter died. The films have, regarding the plot, no where to go because the artist told you up front what happens. This liberates them because it allows the artist to explore what the emotion feels like.

In Bruges - A very weird movie that was entirely unlike what I was expecting. I enjoyed it, though. Fiennes, Gleeson and Farrel are all great in it, and the characters are quirky but not in that aggressive way that is all to common in post-Tarantino crime films. Streaming on Netflix and very much worth a watch
