An erotic story about a woman, the assistant of an art gallery, who gets involved in an impersonal affair with a man. She barely knows about his life, only about the sex games they play, so the relationship begins to get complicated.
Yesterday I watched this movie with my friends to have a laugh and because it’s a so-called ’80 cult movie.
Was it erotic? Yes, probably.
Was it a good movie? No, not really.
Disappointed? Yeah, totally!
Since I’ve haven’t watched Hannibal or Star Wars they told me I can’t make a real list but… these are my favorite villains!
Two films… two stories… two worlds.
Hi readers! I’m going to London tomorrow and I’ll stay there for 10 days… without my computer… But I don’t want you to feel lonely so I’ve prepared a special list just for you! I hope you like it!
Breakfast on Pluto
Delicate and deep. Patrick “Kitten” Braden is a sweet character living in a fairytale, but unfortunately life is not always pink and romantic. Amazing cast and original plot.
I’ve tried to make a top 10 of my favourite films but I failed… miserably. The reason is simply, I’m split in two parts:
- intellectual young woman that loves art and philosophy
- teenager that loves love stories and hot guys
I hope I’m not seriously ill… 🙂
To solve this complex problem there’s just one solution… 2 lists!
MY TOP 10 (first version… the serious one)
It’s always nice to know that your favourite book will be turned in a film but when you go to cinema the surprise can be good or bad. Do you want some examples?
I read the book after watching the movie and I have to say that Ang Lee did a wonderful job! It’s definitely one of my favourite movies ever. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger were perfect. The book was really short, the idea was good but the atmoshere created in the movie was better (I’m probably the one who thinks so…).
BOOK VS FILM: Film
Last year I watched for the first time a film about drugs addiction (Requiem for a dream) and I decided to start a cinematographic session about this big issue. My mother was really worried about it even if I don’t smoke, drink or take drugs :-). Let’s start from my favourite:
1# REQUIEM FOR A DREAM
I watched this movie for a banal reason. I love Jared Leto as a singer and after watching Alexander I decided to watch all his movies (and I did it). This film was a real surprise for me. It was the first about this theme that I’ve ever watched and I fell in love with it from the first scene. The photography is particular and the repetitive gestures make you feel alienated just like the characters. The soundtrack is brilliant, it’s tragic and moving thanks to the violins. The cast is amazing and this film really deserved an Oscar.
As you can see in the page “About me” my avatar is an eye… now you understand why!
After watching Little Ashes (quick plot: relationship between Salvador Dalì and Federico Garcia Lorca) I was curious about Salvador’s life and I read “Conversations with Dalì” and I fell in love with his art (I have a weakness for superegos and dandy style). Reading his biography I found a title of a surrealistic film: Un chien andalou. I was excited to know that he collaborated in the realization of a film so I watched it.
First impression: what??? OMG
Second impression: mmm
Third impression: let’s go to wikipedia!
There are thousands of good actors and actresses all around the world and I want to focus your attention on a few that I’ve discovered this year (mostly in TV series).
I saw him in The Big Bang Theory and his character Sheldon was one of the funniest guy I’ve ever seen on TV. Now he’s currently nominated for an Emmy Award and I really hope he can win because he really deserve it for that performance! I’ve never seen him in other movies but I’m going to do it as soon as I can.
Often people just go to the cinema to watch blockbusters and they don’t know that the world is plenty of thousands good (or even amazing) indipendent films. I’m not a critic so this is just my humble opinion on some good films.
THE LAST OF THE HIGH KINGS (AKA SUMMER FLINGS) 1996
“It is 1977, Dublin rocks to the music of Thin Lizzy and the world is stunned by the death of Elvis Presley. Frankie, caught between acne and adulthood, has just completed his final exams in school. Convinced he will fail, he survives the summer organising a beach party, having lustful thoughts about two girls he believes are unobtainable and fending off the advances from a visiting American family friend, all whilst coping with his oddball family.”
It’s not the classic teen movie about adolescence sex & drugs & rock n’ roll but it faces some important issues: ethics linked to religious intolerance and the Irish Question. Moreover the lines quotes James Joyce and Hemingway.
