I love movies, life, books, and music. Here are my thoughts : )

TRIBECA REVIEW: X/Y

The movie intricately explores the wanton desire we have as people to connect. Whether it’s a connection with a stranger you met in a coffee shop, a connection with a significant other that’s been missing for far too long, or a brief connection with a friend that hints at something that will never be. It’s a movie about sex without being overtly sexual. It’s a movie that allows its characters to be humans. All four of them have faults, all four are looking for something unclear but substantial, and all are frustrated and longing. They aren’t good or bad, but they’re relatable.

8/10

Shopgirl (2005) Directed By: Anand Tucker 

I didn’t like this movie but mostly that was due to the overwrought writing by Steve Martin and the distant performances that he and Claire Danes turned in. Schwartzman for the most part is in his own little side plot for the majority of the film and we get to see him grow from an immature young man into one who at the very least ready to try harder-it’s simply and isn’t a huge amount of growth but it’s enough to allow him to shine in a movie that he out-acted.

William Shakespeare

(April 23, 1564 – April 23, 1616)

"…the nearest thing in incarnation to the eye of god." —Sir Laurence Olivier

"There are only a few artists in all the arts who can be called the best without argument. I can only think of two—Mozart and Shakespeare." —Orson Welles

On this date 450 years ago, a man was born into obscurity. That man would change the world with his writing, leave us the greatest treasure trove of stories and characters in the English language, and ultimately receive the most screen credits for a single person in film history.

So, here’s to Shakespeare and to his legacy in the cinema—an art form that wouldn’t be invented until centuries after his death.

I Heart Huckabees (2004) Directed By: David O. Russell 

Schwartzman changes up his typical routine with this outing and plays Albert, a sad and lonely man who gets mixed up in an existential detective agency that helps people find the source of their angst. He’s simultaneously more internal and more offbeat in this performance and he provides a grounded persona in a larger than life story.
