This morning, 2 months ago, yesterday, 23 years ago, never, just now..? Touching is a complicated matter, I see.
touched-some1.com has launched to promote the latest sci-fi movie starring Scarlett Johansson – Under the skin. Horror sci-fi, to be precise – an alien seductress (Scarlett) preys upon hitchhikers in Scotland. Brilliant.
Check out some of the answers and then go touch someone for real. It’s healthy.
With a little over 20 posts and my forth month officially into blogging I must say there is still no clear concept of what’s happening here. We have a few fashion observations, a little good music and some humble opinions on cinema.
But this, this is different. I bumped into F for Fake while reading an interview and I put it on immediately. It was a little bit of a rough start I may say with a few occasional fall-asleeps here and there, but in the end I was as hooked as a little girl on candy.
This is officially the most beautiful, magical look behind the curtains of the ‘art scene’ and its birth. Fraud, fakery and intrigue are the main discussed issues, but individuality, pretentious expertise and modesty slip right in as well. Throughout the magical narration of Orson Welles, who is also the creator of the film (and of Citizen Kane), you get to meet few of the most controversial forgers of the 20th century.
A masterpiece of montage, story telling, great minds, romance and comedy. It’s where documentary meets fairytale. You can watch it here.
And this – this is the first time it actually feels meaningful to write a blogpost.
I don’t want to turn this into a movie blog, but my god.
The cinematography, the music. the dialog, the metaphors, the beauty and the sadness.
What a movie.
Watch it. Today.
Sounds almost like an oxymoron. Or a moron.
Few reactions to Spike Jonze’s latest film Her, that I saw from this sweet guy. A heavily weird Asian girl, few incurable pessimists, some realists and a hopelessly-in-love-romantic-she-understands-everything-about-me type a dude. Bless him.
The movie itself is pure hopeless magic. At first you’re not really buying all the geeky futuristic technology on top of the most happily looking orange/pink/yellow backdrop and Scarlett Johansson painfully sexy voice. Then you just realise that’s not the point. Besides, sweet mother of god, Joaquin Phoenix. Nechovek.
So before this starts looking like a movie review – just play some of the short documentary below. Or better yet – the movie.
