So I don’t think I’ll post about my North America trip today. Probably not. Maybe.
Anyway, on my long flight back home from New York, I watched tons of movies on the flight. I wanted to sleep but several babies sitting around me prevent me from entering dreamland.
The movies I’ve seen on my flight:
I found Her really intriguing and something fresh that I’ve haven’t seen before. This is really rare as I’ve watched an absurd amount of films.. Even those indie films that I can’t get my hands (or eyes) in the cinema, the internet gets it for me. And especially those indie films.
Also, 12 Years a Slave is one of those films that deserves to be seen. It doesn’t matter if slavery is not something that you relate with, this is a film that will break your heart and move you (at least it did for me).
Another reason why I think 2013 has been such a good year for film is Matthew McConaughey insane acting in the film Dallas Buyers Club. And Jared Leto steals every scene he(or she) is in.
On a different note, The Best Offer is a movie that tried. I can tell that it had ambition but the end result left me wanting more (or less, in terms of complexity).
Kill Your Darlings is a film that requires you to have some background knowledge on the subject for you to appreciate the movie even more. It was about the earliest members of the Beat Generation (a group of American post-World War II writers). Personally, Dane Dehaan stole the show. He might be more familiar to most people as the Green Goblin in the upcoming The Amazing Spiderman 2. Before the big blockbuster, Dane was very much acting mostly independent films and doing a heck of a good job out of them. I predict big things for him.
