And I kept thinking about days later so that's always a good sign. I loved the interaction between the dad and the teenage girl over the phone. I told myself I need to remember this if such a situation happens with my daughter at one point. Most of all the acting was great, so natural you felt like part of the friends.I saw the Italian movie ‘Perfect strangers’ today. It was very good. It was almost like a play, because the whole movie takes place in one evening, and most of it is in one house, with just seven main actors (and small roles for the children and a grandma). Based on a novel idea to share what’s on their cell phones - incoming calls and text messages. The story evolves and reaches a climax. Well written and acted.
Thats just your opinion. So explain what is so great about it. I have my opinion and I can compare movies when I want to.I wish you would stop ragging on Roma. We get it as you wrote about it like 10 times. You didn't enjoy it, but obviously many people did and many outside of this forum have been analyzing the qualities of the movie so they see real merit in the film as a piece of art.
I would like to hear your opinion also, @VIETgrlTerifa.Thats just your opinion. So explain what is so great about it. I have my opinion and I can compare movies when I want to.
It is on my ‘to see’ list, but after reading this, may be not. I was hopin* to at least see a lot of his paintings in it.Not sure if anyone else has seen At Eternity's Gate. I saw it last night.
I kind of felt like it was a student film, there seemed to be so many close ups and held hand camera stuff in it. I will say Willem Dafoe's performance is very good as Van Gogh and I really liked how they talked about his need to paint and also showed him creating the works. I did find myself nodding off a bit and someone else in the cinema was snoring quite loudly which you could hear people snickering about. So okay. Not a groundbreaker and some might find it a bit boring.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lust_for_Life_(film)Kirk Douglas played Van Gogh in an old 50s film. I’d recommend that one if you ever see it flipping around AMC. Plus the director went for a color scheme similar to his sunflower paintings.
You will get to see a lot his art in it. There is also a documentary coming out this year about Van Gogh too.It is on my ‘to see’ list, but after reading this, may be not. I was hopin* to at least see a lot of his paintings in it.
Depending on where you live and your channel availability, you would be more likely to find Lust for Life, the Vincente Minnelli-directed film starring Kirk Douglas, on Turner Classic Movies/TCM.Kirk Douglas played Van Gogh in an old 50s film.

I love Antonio Banderas. I wish he appeared in more movies.Yesterday, I watched Life itself with Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde. Oh my .... I didn't know what to expect at all, maybe it would have helped. Maybe I needed to be in a certain mood, like a very over melodramatic one bordering cheesy/pretentious (And I am a lover of really cheesy romantic stuff too so...) Still, out of this mess, I discovered a great Antonio Banderas who saved this overwrought disaster for me. When he appeared, I took notice and started to be more into it but then the movie keeps on hammering you with the truth of life as subtly as a Candeloro on ice.
I was actually going to watch Roma but there has been so much talks about it being boring on this forum, I keep postponing but now after watching this, it can only be an upgrade.
