Woody Allen period. What can I say. Just one of the best comedy films of all time. Amazing script and brilliant cinematography! Above all, woody allen’s style is just beyond delight and great pleasure to watch.

An immensely humorous film.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green 2012

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

American

Writer : Ahmet Zappa and Peter Hedges

Director: Peter Hedges

Great film for all ages but I think adults will appreciate this movie more than the kids. For parents especially, this is a fantastic film.

The movie, although did not seem to have explained the appearance of Timothy and the mystery of it all. It has showed its audience family values as well as the magic of love and letting go. But most importantly hope. This movie is both wonderful and warm.

Mr. Morgan’s Last Love

Mr.-Morgans-Last-Love-HD-Movie-2013-2

It has been a long time since I last wrote. I have not have found the right movie to write about until I saw this film a couple days ago.

This movie is very simple, honest, and real. Michael Caine was fantastic in his role. He did it so well it felt like you know him from somewhere. I loved this movie as well as the words in it.

Such as Mr. Morgan’s conversation with Pauline. “And sometimes you meet someone… who requires all the love you have to give. And if you lose that someone, you think everything else is gonna stop too. But everything else just keeps on going. Giraudoux said, you can miss a single being, even though you are surrounded by countless others. Those people are like… like extras. They cloud your vision, they’re a meaningless crowd. They… They’re an unwelcome distraction. So you seek oblivion in solitude. But solitude only makes you wither.”

What powerful words these are. Feels good that people make films like this.

Mr. Morgan’s Last Love

Gregory Go Boom 2013

*American*

Director: Janicza Bravo

Writer: Janicza Bravo

A short film released for Comedy Week starring Michael Cera and yes, he does it again. That unspeakable awkward moments, so far-fetched yet it does happen in real life.

However, the purpose of this film was to give out humour in one of the most unfunny circumstances in life. In this case,though the main character is a disabled person, it is a bit tragic and disheartening for everyone who search for true love yet sometimes it does not exist.

This film is perplexed in many ways and I find it great.

I belong (Som du ser meg) 2012

I belong (Sum du ser meg) 2012

 

This film shows a great example of what is really happening in reality. I admire how the quite mundane scenarios and circumstances where  remarkably captured and expressed in this movie. I like the dramatic tone where the author of the book  reads through the story and then opens up whole new worlds of this three ordinary women. A classic example of people misunderstanding each other and ending up being hurt even though the main intention was only to do good deeds.

Ingenious for grasping what is mostly right in front of us and appreciate the regular.

Detachment 2011

 

Detachment 2011

That feeling of numbness and emptiness, this film has captured immensely. I am quite sure most of us will relate to this one.

The main character brings a lonely and apathetic tone to the film as well as delivering a depressing mood all through out.  However, despite the life struggles, one finds himself opening his heart and realizing he is not entirely alone.

The cast were impressive in their acting and portrayal.

After Lucia (Después de Lucía) 2012

Strikingly depressing, this movie will haunt you even after you have finished watching it.  Unfortunately for some of us, this has been their reality, rather is their reality.  However  apart from the awful truth and distressing scenes, this film is beautiful.

As well thrilling to a point that you would want to jump over the window as you watch. Hence I felt a bit overwhelmed as I empathized with the charters in the movie.  The actors are wonderful with their roles along with their adaptations.

Amazing, arrestingly bold and deep.
