I've been #searching (and not be able to find) this #film (perhaps a tele film). Plot:
A very joyful young woman gets a different boy friend every month (and names them after the month - Mr May, Mr. June, etc). I think the action takes place in N. York, but I'm not sure. One of the boyfriends doesn't give up on her and comes to find out that she has some kind of cancer (in the head, I think) and has only a few months to live, increasingly painfully.
Cannot find it. #help
Yesterday watched the #film Because I Said So, starring #DianeKeaton and #MandyMoore.
Although "the current critical consensus" about the movie "is overwhelmingly negative" I found myself thinking after that I had never been so close of understanding women. 🤭
Watched 2002 #film #Chicago .
What can I say? Well chosen ex-mr. Crawford for the ladies’ man and #ZetaJones as the brunnete fatal temptress.
The story is excruciatingly #vulgar, but if you like #stage #musical on the flat screen… (At least I didn’t fall asleep as it happened when watching Bergman’s Magic Flute.)
Finished watching Mercedes Álvarez' film/documentary(?) The Sky Turns (El Cielo Gira).
In a word the #film is about extinction, or extinctions - meaning, a collective death beyond individual death.
Over the weekend (re)watched Phillip #Noyce's The Quiet American, 2002 #film.
IMO the most astounding thing about the film is that, without any narration or direct historical reference, it shows how and why the US originated the Vietnam war.
As my father used to say, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."
Over past weekend watched the two 3-hour #film the Best of Youth, which covers major political and social events in #Italia between #year_1966 and #year_2003. The #movie is somehow a #sequel of the famous Bertolucci's film 1900.
It took me 2 days to get the root message in the movie:
*If you try to change the world , the world will destroy you and will remain the same. Alternatively, if you change your life you always end-up changing the world a little.*
Still trying to digest the #film I have seen this week, Lord of #War starring Nicholas Cage. Which is difficult when it starts with the main character saying: "There are over 550 million fire arms in world wide circulation. That's 1 fire arm for every 12 people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11?" - and ends with the subtitle: "This movie is based on real facts."
(In the movie it's explained in only 2 lines of 1 scene why O. Welles didn't return to the US until 1956.)
(re)Watched Roman #Polanski's #film The Pianist
The movie script is based on an autobiography. The events took place only 68 years ago.
Over past week watched Wim #Wenders' #film The State of Things. The #movie is a hard critic to the #financing of independent/B series movies by the #mafia.
(I just don't understand why the director chose B&W having the beautiful scenario of #Sintra-Portugal...)
Recently watched Imagining Argentina, a #film written and directed by Christopher Hampton. (Based on #true facts , so I cannot really understand the title...). At some point at the beginning of the movie a narrator says: "When the military dictatorship fell in 1983, here in Argentina, we were told that we should never look back. ... But we have to look back. It is our sacred duty to look back."
Yesterday evening finished watching Anton #Corbijn's #film #Control, a "biographical film about the life of Ian Curtis, singer of the late-1970s English post-punk band Joy Division" until his suicide at the age of 23. Lots of music of the Joy Division band.
