Ok, I’m a Film addict. I go to a movie theater 2 or 3 times a week sometime I go to see 2 or 3 movies on a row. For the last 2 weeks I have write about the best ones of the weekend but this week I saw 2 worth to write about.
The first one is a movie that have been causing waves for weeks: The social Network
The Social Network is a great movie. It’s a simply a perfect script, the plot well develop and very well crafted dialogues, Aaron Sorkin created a totally realistic and memorable script, it will be simply wrong let the script out of the Oscar race. The Director David Fincher uses his 3 characteristic trails: a perfectionist attitude, impeccable camerawork and his dark yet vividly-colored cinematography. While the performance are simply intense and witty: Jesse Eisenberg play the eccentric, obsessive genius and clueless about social interaction; Andrew Garfield played Eduardo Saverin and he is excellent at it you feel sorry for him and he is nearly perfect in the movie. Even Justin Timberlake is impressive in the movie playing Sean Parker, he is kind of a duce but still a savvy business man . Wintervoss twins are one of the most perfect character ever because as they are so controlled but at thee same time are a pivotal point of the stroy.
The movie is narrated in flashbacks with make it a very interesting experiment. The opening scene where Marc broke up with his girlfriend Erica is one of the finest scenes I ever saw. I have read compared this movie with Citizen Kane. I should say that the only thing they got in common is that both are about an eccentric mogul. The Social network is very clever because let you wondering Marc Zukenberg is just clueless or a plain ass. I like it and I even feel bad for Zukenberg because at the end the story is just about an outcast who just try to do something to prove he was more than the other see on him, I mean who have try that.
The Second movie is LET ME IN
A couple of years ago I saw a Swedish film called Let the right one in a romantic horror film. And it was simply beautiful, the movie was based in the book of the same name by John Ajvide Lindqvist. The story turns around the relationship of a bullied boy and child vampire in the 1980’s. A cool thing of this book is that is inspired by Morrisey song: Let the Right One Slip In and vampire folklore. The original movie directed by Thomas Alfredson.
When this movie was presented in Tribeca Film Festival, Hammer films buy the rights to make and american version: LET ME IN. As I already said I love the Swedish movie so I was a little skeptic about the american version. And I was quite wrong the movie is not a remake is an adaptation, the Director Matt Reeves really respect the Swedish version. Obviously there is a lot of chances, like the relationship with the parents
The best part of this is finally is this beautiful romantic story be more accessible to everyone. This is truly a love story, of innocence and blood lust. It may be not a new idea but definitely worth of seen it.
