REVIEW - Waiting in the line to see Only Lovers Left Alive, I noticed that my fellow movie-goers were throwing worrying looks at me. I thought I had forgotten to put pants on but then it hit me : I was paler than usual that day and I was holding a cup of beetroot juice that looked a lot like blood. Being mistaken for a wannabee-vampire kinda made my day. The sure thing though is that if I were indeed one, I would emulate Lestat and not the hipster bloodsuckers of Jim Jarmusch’s film.
REVIEW - I’m not really into Wes Anderson's cinema. Frankly, it bothers me a bit. I sometimes think I must be kinda dumb not to get how amazing his whole oeuvre is. It's unpleasant to be afraid of missing out on something great because you're not sharp enough. I mean I would love to be able to dissect in minute detail The Grand Budapest Hotel like fellow critics so brilliantly did but I guess I just have the following none mind-blowing thoughts to offer.
INTERVIEW - I talked about Ralph Fiennes and dandyism in my latest review so what’s better than following up with the interview of real-life British dandy Jack Guinness? You’ve seen him in magazines and on the red carpets with fashion royalties Alexa Chung and Georgia May Jagger but did you know that he also writes weekly on his blog? Read him for insights on style, pop culture, life and… Ace Ventura.
REVIEW - To paraphrase Michael Keaton in the movie, I did not know how much I needed this new RoboCop before I saw it. A die-hard fan of Paul Verhoeven and his ‘87 masterpiece, I was like all of you utterly against this remake. I bitched about it for months, laughing out loud at the production problems, dead sure it would be a piece of junk. Well, I want to sincerely apologize for my negative attitude. This RoboCop is indeed nothing short of a miracle.
REVIEW - I loved Silver Linings Playbook. To me it was enchanting. As in truly magical. It had an incredible energy that made me feel as if I were sharing the characters’s journey. The little story is that right before seeing it, I bought a book. When Jennifer Lawrence began to reveal the story of the Lord of the Flies, I panicked : it was the book I had just bought! I wish something similar had happened to me during American Hustle. It might have had revive my short-lived interest for it.
TRUE BLUE - You were planning on spending this Valentine with Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt or Leo DiCaprio? Forget it: they are overbooked. Tonight, they have roughly ten million dates. Knowing that everybody is going to turn to these actors for comfort doesn’t make me feel special. And I need to feel special. So here’s my list of underrated movie boyfriends we don’t always think of but definitely should for companionship on Valentine’s Day. What’s yours?
INTERVIEW - To get your David Lynch fix, you can go see his photo exhibition in Paris or go to New York to listen to Lauren Fox sing in the theatrical cabaret Ghosts of Love: Songs From the Reel World of David Lynch. With her atypical look and versatility, the Pi and We Need to Talk About Kevin's actress would completely fit in the strange cinematic world of Lynch. It will come to you as no surprise to find two of his movies have made it to her list.
REVIEW - “Who’s not going to pay $10 to watch this movie? Even just to see Lindsay Lohan’s boobs and to see if the porn guy can act?” was James Deen quoted in the New York Post. Considering the box-office failure of The Canyons, it’s safe to say a lot of people didn’t have 10 bucks to spare. Who is to blame for the epic bombing of The Canyons ? Breat Easton Ellis believes it’s Lindsay Lohan's reputation that tainted the project from the get-go. Although I understand his point, I will let him alone try to pin down why the movie didn't attract spectators. I'd rather use this article to give The Canyons some of the love it deserves.
between his tweet shaming Bieber for looking like a girl & his latest one throwing shade at a person who just died, I cant help but think Jared Padalecki is a dumb asshole
