Which is why I'm writing - to feel better.
I watched some movies recently and I want to share some thoughts on some of them.
Powerful, with great style, unique, yet a bit morally confused.
Complex, honest and revealing about human nature. Hard to find a flaw.
It makes you understand that lust can be a destructive thing if you're not lucky in regard to who inspires it in you.
Smart, funny and moving homage to an era with some welcome specific references. But... not always interesting.
Pretty proud of itself even if it knows some will mock it. As you're watching it you might expect only to have a little fun (if that) but it's entirely possible to end up moved and generally impressed.
Pretty ambitious and eccentric (well, von Trier...duh) yet not messy. Realtionships are tested by ordinary (a wedding) and extraordinary (the possibility of the end of the planet) occasions providing very interesting and aesthetically pleasing results.
The Way We Were
Bittersweet story that feels a bit dated in its realization yet it's pragmatic enough that, with a little (or a lot of) help from Barbra's very good performance, it manages to have a soul.
