Watched Citizen Kane, a 1941 black and white film for my assignment. A film noir with amazing cinematography for that time. Loved the style and the unusual non-linear narrative. And Orson Welles was directing for the first time.
Inspiring.

Thelma & Louise just broke my heart. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are excellent. I loved the ending. Shows that friendship is the most important thing especially when your spouse is fucked up. ( I've been through that )
The amazing thing is Ridley Scott ( Aliens, Gladiator ) is the director.

Just for some Kidman injection. Dead Calm
Raw and effective performance. Looking at her in the 1989 movie just confirmed my suspicions that she must have been through some cosmetic surgery. She looks.. erm... dorky

I think i am also becoming a dork.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Did you think Brad Pitt was sexy in T&L?

Citizen Kane is a terrific film :)
Oh Stevie!! I died when i saw brad pitt in T&L! haha
i can imagine why thelma went for him. ( if i have a husband at home looking like t's husband i will definitely have an affair with T as well ) hahahaha

Citizen Kane's a top notch movie.
Notice how the snowball became a central object that links the actions of Kane to his childhood, a reminder of how we are made up of our own history.

And of course, Rosebud.

I like how they set the movie in a detective-like way to uncover a person's life from many people's perspectives thru' a reporter's quest for rosebud

of cos no one word can describe any person in this life and many of us are different to many people. One of the film's themes. I think it also shows that rosebud can be the reason why Kane went thru his whole life because of his unhappy childhood of insecurity and lack of love.

blame your parents for all your faults!!!
don't you just love xanadu?? :P
Yes. Huge, beautiful and .... "empty"

a rich man's life
i'm sure that the movie is particularly poignant to you, since you're attached to a rich man's son.. :P
erm are you trying to say i am poor? ;P
aaarghhh
I wanna watch too!!
Need to upgrade artistic quotient!
oh dear... you havent watched dogville have you??

That movie beats em all.. haha
hey hey hey! i did that (Citizen Kane) during my term for Filmic Narratives.

I went to the Castle itself - Hearst Castle when i was in US. Its W.O.W!

Do u like the 'Moulin Rouge' dance segment during the end of the election campaign?
Ohhhhh!! when did you do Filmic Narratives?? hee hee
and W.O.W W.O.W you went to the Hearst Castle???

well the movie did not say it's based on him, there are some differences... i.e. his first wife and son did not die in the car crash as depicted in the movie. i love the screenplay. it's so clever!

i dun really remember any moulin rouge dance segment leh.. must go and check.. watch too many movies already
Haven't watched Citizen Kane. But I read somewhere that Madonna's 1990 black-and-white video for "Oh Father" directed by David Fincher was supposedly inspired by that film.
Oh well. you madonna-fanatic. i almost forgot that you are one till yours truly mentioned.

go watch it. it's very good.
Oh Yeepin!! I studied Citizen Kane toooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OH and Thelma and Louise too!!! :)
huh?? your uni provides studies for Thelma and louise or you watched thelma and louise??
Oh no no no.. I meant we had to do this critical analysis of the movies from the different genres of movies we watched in class. And also we had to choose a few movies from a given list as "extra" movies to write about. Thelma and Lousie was one of them I watched and critic about
i bet you felt like you are in the movie with charmy rite?
oh how i wish i was doing the same course with you at the same time imagine we are classmates... =(
Oh don't be sad my dear...you can do it!! Are there many Asians in this class?

Citizen Kane's goooooooooooooood. was never so impressed by any film before.
oh wow... never thought so many of you would've watched such an old movie before. i mean.. wow.

i have artistic friends hahaha

but yeah it's damn good.. not in an artistic way actually
FRom the so-many comments about Citizen Kane, it looks like I know what to rent the next time I go to VideoEzy.

I love Thelma and Lousie. It was my first movie at the now-defunct Picturehouse. And Brad Pitt was soooo cute and they thrashed the whole room having sex.

Glad to know you are enjoying your classes!!
hope you can find citizen kane cos it's quite difficult to find it in singapore.. i think.. or probably i have noticed... have anyone told you it's black and white??
