It took me by surprise because it's difficult for me to think of anything not being for you, James.It was just me realising "Oh no, this film is not for me." Life is Beautiful was another one.
Ha, thanks! Well, there's a certain type of cloying, whimsical humour that leaves me cold. If I remember correctly, that's what Greek Wedding and Life is Beautiful had in common, but it's a very long time since I (didn't) watch them so I can't be totally sure.It took me by surprise because it's difficult for me to think of anything not being for you, James.
And I mean that in the most complimentary way. It's a testament to your open-mindedness.
I've never seen either. And now I don't think I'd care to.Ha, thanks! Well, there's a certain type of cloying, whimsical humour that leaves me cold. If I remember correctly, that's what Greek Wedding and Life is Beautiful had in common
It was a little bizarre to get a little way into a film I was watching for the first time and realise I knew the rest of it almost verbatim.I don't really get it. Live-action remakes of animated movies are bad enough but this one is just another kind of animation.
Gosh, I had the exact opposite reaction!I´m talking about the gay favorite of 2018 "Call By Your Name". It should better be titled "Call Me Bi". I only liked the Italy scenery. Both leads are pathetically unexpressive and their characters are even more pathetic and undefined, and the writing is as outdated as Miss Piggy´s fake eyelashes. I didn´t expect this from such a talented writer as James Ivory but hey, I think the director here is the one to blame.
I didn´t buy the love story and most characters seem to be stupid in one or other way, which makes the film itself rather stupid too.
The song at the end is especially haunting (except I thought he was singing "Is it a video? Is it a video?" which I actually prefer).I also loved the songs in the film written and sung by Sufjan Stevens.
