This is one movie that brought me joy like no other. I hadn't reached a cinematic high in a while and The Stepford Wives was it. I absolutely adore everything about this film. Somebody told me to imagine if David Lynch directed it, but no, I'd rather nobody but Brian Forbes direct this. It's so perfect the way it is. The Stepford Wive's atmosphere is great. It starts out seeming like an art house meditation on feminism. Joanna Eberheart, a…
This was like the Vegan Fight Club.
And it was perfect for me. It had all the stuff I like in life. Fart jokes, Instagram, cool art projects, humming, farting, pee pee jokes, butts, and poop. I'm actually farting as I write this.
No one can say that this isn't one of the most original films ever made.
A movie made by a pretentious, narcissistic filmmaker, with no "relatable"
characters, no plot, no theme, no nothing. A movie that most likely means nothing. Gives me a lot of hope that one day I will be a director!
But that's the beauty of it, that's the beauty of film. Film has no criteria, film can be anything, and this movie, to me at least (and thousands of other Kubrick/film fans), is a masterpiece. There are characters, they are just very subtle characters, there are themes left up to interpretation, there is a plot, just a subtle plot. HAL steals the show.
Another masterpiece from Luc Besson! Leon: The Professional is the story of Leon, a professional hit-man who takes on a student. Except this student is a twelve year old girl! What makes this movie great is that it's not your average kick butt action movie, it's more than that. It's also a character driven drama. So when the action hits, it's bloody, adorable, and most importantly emotional. Leon doesn't just hit men, he hits your heart. The only reason why I rated this movie 4 and a half stars is because I'll look cool on letterboxd for not having many 5 star movies.
