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!
In this English-language remake of a deconstruction in the way violence is portrayed in the media, a family settles into its vacation home, which happens to be the next stop for a pair of young, articulate, white-gloved serial killers on an excursion through the neighborhood.
It’s official! Haneke keeps scaring the hell out of me! Last year I watched “La Pianiste” and I was shocked and now… Funny Games!
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!
Aaron Davis and Christian Markelli are the two most opposite people in the world. Aaron is a young Elder (or a Mormon missionary) who wants to do his family proud and is quite passionate about his religion and film. Christian is a shallow WeHo waiter/party boy who only looks forward to bedding a new guy every night. After Aaron and three other missionaries move into the apartment across from Christian, his friends bet him $50 that he can’t get one of them to jump into the sack, so he instantly latches onto Aaron. There are two problems, though – Christian is falling in love with Aaron and the Mormons are not the biggest fans of the homosexual community. Once Aaron is discovered, the two have to go through trials of regret, loss, perseverance, and forgiveness if they both want to get to the thing that matters to them most: each other.
This film goes straight to my top 20.
Two films… two stories… two worlds.
As I’ve promised on my “project”…
Simon dreams of finding his one true love. Until then, he spends most of his time watching sloppy tearjerkers on video. He also shies away from the shallow young women that he and his friends Micke and Mario meet at bars. But Micke suggests one thing that is a definite babe-magnet: taking a dog out for walks. It’s an instant success for Simon, he meets the delightful Mia who immediately takes a liking to him. But things are not always what they may look like.
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!
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.
