A Single Man, I Love You

 Last Friday I saw New York, I Love You w. Darcy:

I liked it. I didn't love it, but I also didn't expect to. But it was an enjoyable movie with its fair share of heartwarming moments. I have to say that my favourite story was probably the Anton Yelchin & Olivia Thirby "Make-A-Wish" story; I also really enjoyed the Shu Qi "Painter" story.

(Also Maggie Q is flawless and Drea de Matteo has an amazing body, so jealous.)

Boots mentioned that NY,ILU made really good use of the city (much better than Paris) and I agree completely. However one of the things that really bothered me about NY,ILU was the messy interconnection of the stories. I understand that they didn't take the Paris path of completely separate stories, but in my opinion they didn't do a good job of connecting them, it was almost... sloppy in my opinion I guess.

I felt that they way they connected the stories was lazy - some had a link, some didn't, and they were all pulled together by the woman with the camera, like the hub in a wheel. To me, interconnected stories should take more of a web format - it rings truer to life.

Last night, Darcy, Boots and I saw A Single Man at the local indie theatre:

Watching the trailer after having seen the movie is giving me chills. This movie was absolutely stunning. When I watching it, I almost felt like I was watching a moving painting - so much though was put into every detail of this movie, it was incredible.

One of my favourite features of the movie was the way that the colours of the world would become more vibrant every time George (Colin Firth) felt emotional - whether it was happiness, lust, sadness, etc. It wasn't over the top though, which was great. You can witness it a bit in the clip below:

This movie was amazing. If you have the chance, watch it.

  1. It was the most gorgeous, invigorating movie I've seen in quite some time. Also, it didn't hurt that Colin looked dashing the entire movie.
