"Non voglio sentire un altro tocco
Non voglio iniziare un altro fuoco
Non voglio conoscere un altro bacio
Nessun altro nome pronunciato dalle mie labbra
Non voglio dare il mio cuore via
Ad un altro sconosciuto
O lasciare che inizi un altro giorno
Non lascerò entrare la luce del sole
No, non amerò mai più
Non amerò mai più"
Queste le frasi scritte da Jack per dedicare una bellissima poesia alla sua amata Ally. Eh si... L'amore è un'arma, l'amore può darti tutta la felicità di questo mondo e togliertela in un millesimo di secondo, pur essendo amore vero... I'll never love again è una bellissima poesia che Ally alla fine dedicherà con tutto il suo amore al suo unico vero amore Jack ❤📝🎵 #Astarisborn #ladygaga #bradleycooper #allyandjack #illneverloveagain #shallow #filmoftheyear #soundtrackoftheyear #singer #songwriter
Roma (2018), dir. & cinematographer: Alfonso Cuarón.
Roma is one of the films of the year, brilliantly observed and with an intense sense of yearning, lyricism and emotional truthfulness running through every frame. Cuarón not only wrote, produced and directed the film (which is based on his own childhood) but he shot it too, in very evocative black and white (Alexa 65mm). The film is an exquisite study of class and domestic crisis in 70s Mexico City as seen through the eyes of Cleo, a domestic maid working for an affluent family teetering on the edge of breakdown, much like Mexico at this time. In typically Cuarón fashion, much of the film’s background serves to accompany the film’s subjects, often revealing more than what the foreground reveals. The characters become absorbed in their surroundings and Mexico City functions as another important character. The camera accentuates this blending of background/foreground as it floats and pans seamlessly through both open expansive locations and constrictive & densely packed streets. Well worth watching on the big screen, not only to fully immerse yourself in the film’s visual and audio achievements, but also to witness a filmmaker working at the peak of his powers to deliver the film of his career. 10/10 or 5/5 however the fuck you want to do it. ⭐️
Who was the real star at A Star Is Born tonight? I’ll let you decide 🙌🏼🌟❤️👠
This film broke me. A Star Is Born is incredible. I really don’t know how to put it into words how great this film is. When I heard Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. I was in. Then I heard Dave Cobb was co-producing an original soundtrack, Lukas Nelson & The Promise Of The Real were gonna be Cooper’s backing band, and Jason Isbell wrote a song for the film. I WAS SOLD. I honestly had hyped this up so much in my mind, I thought it was physically impossible for it to live up to my expectations. It blew all my expectations out of the water. Bradley Cooper was phenomenal. Lady Gaga’s acting was unreal. So good. The amount of talent the woman possesses is astronomical. Such a rollercoaster of a film, a moving, beautiful, emotional rollercoaster. It felt like I fell in love with music and the power of the song all over again. I’m emotionally exhausted. You have to go see this movie as soon as possible. I honestly don’t think you’ll see a better one this year. Film of the year. #AStarIsBorn #2018 #Movie #BradleyCooper #LadyGaga #SamElliott #DaveChapelle #AndrewDiceClay #AnthonyRamos #LukasNelsonAndThePromiseOfTheReal #FilmOfTheYear #OscarWorthy #MusicIsEverything
Andhadhun is a pacy, wicked thriller. It's racy, it's pulpy and it's darn intelligent. The characters of Andhadhun are people you may know or people you may see every day. It is so wonderfully written and executed that you exit out of the cinemas feeling entertained to bits. It's noir done just right.
Coming to the characters, Ayushmann is terrific as the blind piano player. This is a man who takes up the most unconventional of all roles and slays them completely. And Tabu, oh Tabu. She still remains a femme fatale and her performances are getting better with each film. Andhadhun is as much about Tabu as it is about Ayushmann. Her remorseless act is a sheer delight to watch as she dials up the body count. Radhika Apte playing against type as a carefree girl is bloody good as the girl in love with Ayushmann's character. Such a powerhouse of talent and we get to witness yet another side of her. Manav Vij as the harebrained cop who eats 16 eggs a day is bloody good. The Raghavan regulars Zakir Hussain and Ashwini Kalsekar pop up in roles that are caricaturishly good. But it is the casting of Anil Dhawan that is a masterstroke. It adds so much zing to the story. The narcissist angle really will have you in splits.
The cinematography by KU Mohanan is amazingly good. The bylanes of Pune never looked so good. Amit Trivedi, that magician who keeps giving us hummable songs in every film comes to the party in Andhadhun as well. His piano heavy scores add just the right dash of excitement to the scenes. And last but not the least is the director Sriram Raghavan. Every film of his barring the insipid Agent Vinod is a lesson in crafty film making. He is that modern day Messiah who can salvage thrillers and entertain us while doing so.
So the bottomline is that do not miss Andhadhun for anything in this world. It is a film that you will love to watch again...and again! It's smart, it's witty and it has it's brain in the right place.
