"I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything."

— F. Scott Fitzgerald (via realizes)

Wong Kar-Wai cinema love masters of cinema


Film Meme: directors (5/7)

What makes cinema so attractive, so fascinating is that it’s not just a one plus one process. It’s a chemistry between sounds, words, ideas and image. - Wong Kar-wai

The More the Merrier (#150!)

I expected a standard slapstick 1940s romcom with all the reparte, physical humor and narrative tediousness that often comes as part of the package but instead found myself quite charmed and enjoying this picture. Jean Arthur is very good (and minimally hysterical, which is  impressive) and Joel McCrea is similarly laid-back and divine. They both play the timing and humor so naturally that it fits their characters to a T. Especially wonderful (and shocking considering the time) is McCrea pawing Arthur on the front steps of their apartment. It gave me chills. Lovely direction from George Stevens with a light, yet timely script from Robert Russell, Frank Ross, Richard Flournoy and Lewis R. Foster, I really enjoyed this and highly recommend it.

Peter O'Toole RIP icon Hollywood actor love High Quality

RIP to Peter O’Toole, one of the finest actors to grace the stage or screen and a larger than life man even when the cameras weren’t rolling. I think that The Guardian’s reporting casts the best light:

O’Toole is believed to have been born in Connemara in County Galway in Ireland, and lived in London.” …That’s the sign of a real legend, where we only have a vague idea of your origins because we love and admire the spectacle so much.

About Time (#140)

I love every ingredient in this movie: I adore everything Richard Curtis has done (so I was committed to seeing this in theaters to give my $12 vote for his next movie to be funded); I’ve long said that Domhnall Gleeson is brilliant and I wanted him to have a wide career; I would be Bill Nighy’s concubine if he asked; Rachel McAdams is a goddess; I love London; I love Richard Curtis’s perspective on love. And yet, even with all of these beautiful things, all of which were beautifully done, I was disappointed. The movie gets off to a rushing, scrambled start that was unnecessary, and loses momentum for segments of the first act before finding a true heart at the end (it made me cry). As I knew it would be, it’s more of a father-child movie than a love-story, and it’s in these moments that the story really glows, even with the absence of real conflict. I will perhaps see this again, but it failed to live up to the amazing expectations and hope I had following Love Actually, Pirate Radio, and Four Weddings and a Funeral. But what could? Mainly, though, I’m really glad to see that Domhnall can carry a movie so effectively and I do, as always, look forward to seeing him in many more things hopefully!
