we forever thought of life as infinite
and we were forever proven wrong
but we never stopped believing
the finiteness of death did not sway the infinite belief in infinity
because sound is stronger than silence
though we can argue otherwise
the worldwide sound of heartbeat
is louder than the grave
Yeah.. a really long way to go..! Not finding many inspirations actually. By the way, to guess you is kinda difficult. You left no trails making a perfect crime. May you should’ve given some mappings like “i’m the girl with the long legs” or “I’m the guy with the constantly running nose ” … so that I can map you in my brain.
My guess is “are u kalyan?”
Let’s start off with the cast, there’s George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti and Marisa Tomei. Whoa! That’s looks like a actors who’ve had very good recent hits. Then lets peep through the theme of the movie… the American Presidential campaign hmmn.. that sounds familiar because that’s happening right now.(Of course, that’s a lot funnier than this movie is though!) With two heavy advantages in hand, George Clooney directed a great movie depicting a power game not by the democratic candidate but by the campaign officials in the campaign effecting the whole race. Tension filled show of how things run around in the campaign from an insider’s perspective. Film making was intelligent especially when it came to the dialogue writing. Breath taking performances by Clooney and Hoffman and not to forget, Gosling and Giamatti excelled in their own style.
It was a gripping political drama in which loyalty, principles and integrity tumble like a house of cards when betrayals alter perceptions. That was shown in a perfect way. Full credit for direction and script writing yet I felt a little set back in the pace of the movie … Well I guess that’s a necessary evil for the drama air to settle in. Anyways, this movie deserves a 4.5 points out of 5. Just loved it. Hope to see some more good movies like this in the future. Speak of which, there’s one in the theaters, named “The Descendants” starring George Clooney which I’m longing to see. Adios!
There’re a lot of historical incidents that left permanent blots on the record of our times on Earth like The Holocaust, World Wars, Apartheid and racial discrimination in many parts of the Western World etc.. One of the very important movement that shook the world is American Civil Rights Movement prominently led by Martin Luther King which was portrayed in the background of this movie. The story mainly revolves around the sad lives of few African American maids who’re referred as “The help”. “The Help” aids the White people in almost everything .. Oh wait let me rephrase that .. “The Help” does “everything” in their daily life yet paid very little. And some love them, some adore them and some despise them out of no human reason. The story is about a young journalist, writer Skeeter (Emma Stone <3) who tries to get the true perspective from their side and want to write a book about them. For this, she seeks help of the Aibileen (Viola Davis), though she rejects her out of fear, helps her later. Mean while, there’s another maid character named : “Minny Jackson” who gets fired from a ungrateful employer named Hilly and she continues to work for another interesting employer where she finds dignity in her work.
The main attractive feature lies in the way the characters emerge onto the screen, they wittily work on the story and finally fade away gently effecting the whole story’s direction. One scene where Skeeter’s maid cheers her up was just soul touching. About the cast, they deserve a 9.5/10. Emma Stone’s awesome as always, Viola Davis’s part was irreplaceable and Octavia Spencer did a great role. Most interesting character I felt was by Jessica Chastain and coming to the negative roles, just a WOW stare at Bryce Howard who perfectly depicted hatred and discrimination out of no reason. The book’s a hit and the movie did justice to it. A feminine movie(way out of my taste) but a touchy one.
Enough words, this movie certainly deserves 4 stars! Do watch it!
Critic’s choice :
Not in any particular order, though!
Do suggest me some good ones and please don’t take up names like “POTC : 4”, “Fast five” or “Super 8”. Hahahah!
Some say Woody Allen’s overrated while I like to contradict by saying that he’s a genius. Funnily, another film lover told me that she sees him as a Genuinely talented “Creep” and well she’s got her own reasons. No matter how the old the theme of love and romance maybe but the innovative dramatic knots that fate keeps knitting makes it interesting enough. And Woody Allen’s a true master in both designing and presenting that. I’ve watched many of his movies starting from ”Annie Hall” to “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” which are quite different from each other strikingly new and creative but this one has special significance because he’s done his work in the Paris correctly quoting it as “The Life Center of the whole Universe” and involving the wonderful literary and art characters of 1920s’ like Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Picasso, the Fitzgeralds, T.S.Eliot and most importantly the surreal art giant “Salvador Dali” has made the movie stand among the modern classics. Woody Allen’s film ingredients like subtle depiction of emptiness, disappointment and not to forget the skillful photography, witty humor came back into his movies after a long time made the movie lovers rejoice.
Of all the characters, Corey Stroll’s did a decent depiction of Ernest Hemingway, beautiful Marion Cotillard did a great job while Adrien Brody deserves a huge applause for the character of “Salvador Dali”. He was just wonderful. Owen Wilson was in own style of acting i.e as if he’s talking to a real person with his confused emotions flowing in his talk. Michael Sheen as the pedantic one, the pretty Rachel McAdams as a pressing girlfriend played good roles. The movie was surreal because the book he’s writing was in fact the movie story itself and the movie revolves around the book. Quite confusing, eh? Don’t get it? Well, I perceived that way though. Midnight in Paris is a loving embrace of the city, of art and of life itself. To the lovers of the art once was praised and treasure and now bygone and neglected, this movie’s a paradise. Well do watch this movie if you didn’t and reply your reviews here. This movie deserves 4.5 stars.
Of all, the most attractive thing is the movie poster itself with the Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry nights. Don’t you agree?
Funniest depiction of Dali by Adrien Brody!! <3 it!!
It’s been an year from when I found my interest in movies not just as a spectator but as a critic and a reviewer may be amateur but one who loves to speak his mind out. Movies reflect life, thoughts, beliefs and most of all emotions. Criticize my obsession to be a waste of time or lazy one but I’d like to say that there’re freaks out there collecting stamps, coins, books and gallery art (half of ‘em worse than my little niece’s work) and I’m might stand among’em. Bah! May be better than’em because I believe there’s an satisfaction in every obsession like Hannibal Lecter has his and I’ve mine. Here in this blog, I’d like to pour out my thoughts on the movies, facts and about random ramblings of my mind. About me, I strive being a witty Nihilist, might strike eccentric but easy to get along. God! Writing about me sucks and I think I should stick with just the movies. Do roam around my space for some spicy movie reviews. I try to be accurate, considerate, unbiased. Love to follow in the foot steps of Roger Ebert, an interesting movie reviewer. So, signing off for now. Stay Awesome. Stay smart. Stay filmy!
