Today there was a nice farewell aperitivo for a dear german friend of mine. Bye bye, Heike! See you in Berlin…… or back here in Milano! 😉
1991, by David Cronenberg.
A surrealistic movie: I would suggest not to try to go in depth with the meanings… it is hard to understand what the hell is going on!
But it is really fun if you simply enjoy the crazy events that happens with the main character.
Here is a nice review I agree with.
Crash, 1996, by David Croonenberg.
I even had a discussion with Lorenzo yesterday after seen the movie, because he supported that it was a good one and I disagreed. I didn’t (and don’t) like the main theme – Crash fetish – and thought the the movie exposed too much something that I’m not interested in knowing in depth.
But… after a good night of sleep and a fresh mind, a must agree with him: it is a good movie. Cronenberg was simply fantastic not only on the shootings and aesthetics, but on keeping you hypnotized seing something you don’t or shouldn’t want to see – like a car crash.
Cidade de Deus(City of God) 2002, by Fernando Meirelles.
A portrait of brazilian favela’s life, hierarchy and culture.
What to say… excellent. The movie is realistic and the actors performances are great.
Maybe it exceeded a bit with shooting effects. I think there was no need for that because the screenplay is already fantastic by itself.
Since I like very much the movies, I thought it deserved a category in my blog.
With no pretentious purpose at all, I just want to share my personal opinion about this wonderful and magic art.
