I’m back again with some recommendations, in case you’re in need of a movie idea or just browsing the world wide web. They are:
1. Velvet Goldmine (1998)
Directed by: Todd Haynes
Storyline: In 1984, British journalist Arthur Stuart investigates the career of 1970s glam superstar Brian Slade, who was heavily influenced in his early years by hard-living and rebellious American singer Curt Wild. (from IMDB)
This movie is one of my favorites. It depicts a whole decade of iconicity, fame and music – also the drugs and reflections that came along. The cast is simply stunning, one of the best assemblies possible, and the soundtrack as well. Its story is sad, funny, rebellious, unapologetic and brilliant.
2. Exam (2009)
Directed by: Stuart Hazeldine
Storyline: The final eight candidates for a highly desirable corporate job are locked together in an exam room and given a test with one question. It seems simple yet confusing that soon, tensions begin to unravel. (from IMDB)
This is a very simple film, yet I find it greatly interesting. It’s not breaking any grounds in its genre, but the twist really got to me and the characters were interesting. Althogheter, a well made flick as well. I guarantee you’ll experience at least one of those “what would I do” moments.
3. Batman – The Dark Knight Returns pt. 1 & 2 (2012 & 2013)
Directed by: Jay Oliva
Part 1 – Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era? (from IMDB)
Part 2 – The Batman has returned after a 10-year absence. The Gotham authorities want to arrest him. An old foe wants a reunion. The Feds want the Man of Tomorrow to put a stop to him. (from IMDB)
I love Batman. I’ve watched all of the movies I could, and this is my favorite animated one. It’s thrilling, well written, unpredictable – and part 2 is everything Batman vs Superman wasn’t.
This is the end.
