Vanilla Sky (2001).

February 11, 2018

IMDb: A self-indulgent and vain publishing magnate finds his privileged life upended after a vehicular accident with a resentful lover.

 

I am trying to watch Penelope Cruz’s filmography and this is the second consecutive film of hers  since the new year that I didn’t really like/enjoy with burning passion. Cheesy script, cheesy moments, a lot of dragging parts, and not so long after Julie Gianni crashed the car and sent it over a bridge did I realize I was already losing interest in the story. in fact, I found that the only sympathetic character there is here was Julie Gianni. The beautiful Cameron Diaz played the jilted lover-gone-mad so vibrantly, I felt soooo bad for her everytime she’s on screen I got a little bit melancholic. Her eyes speak ha pain! Sigh…the crazy things you do for love.

Teorema (1968).

February 4, 2018

IMDb: A strange visitor in a wealthy family. He seduces the maid, the son, the mother, the daughter and finally the father before leaving a few days after. After he’s gone, none of them can continue living as they did. Who was that visitor ? Could he be God ?

 

 

The whole time I was watching this movie, it felt like being so close to God. Thank you, Pasolini. ✹

The Love Witch (2016).

February 2, 2018

IMDb: A modern-day witch uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her.

 

I figured it was just proper to start February with this movie, plus having the super blue blood moon also was a delightful timing. And oh, speaking of delightful, consuming a string of Lana del Rey videos after watching it was the cherry on top of the whole experience. 🍒

 

Movie-fact worth noting: Director Anna Biller did just about everything: from directing, writing, much of the set decorations and costumes, actors’ make-up, down to the editing of the whole movie. Impressive feat!
