It's hard for me to decide on which story I loved more, but I know with confidence that I really want to own a raincoat now. 🖤🖤🖤🖤 #chungkingexpress #1994 #wongkarwai #hongkong #hongkongcinema #drama #vignettes #90sfilm #miramax #jettoneproduction #brigittelinchinghsia #takeshikaneshiro #tonyleungchiuwai #fayewong #cinema #cinephile #criterioncollection #filmbuffs

Arbuckle. Chaplin. Keaton. All names synonymous with being a #silentcomedy legend, men who gave us laughs with slapstick, pratfalls & sharply staged physical comedy at its best. But a titan in their league is #HaroldLloyd, on what would be his 125th birthday today. Lloyd, unlike his contemporaries at this time, artfully retired in the 1940s, with the film industry firmly in the throes of sound (Lloyd himself, did make films with sound) but Lloyd is a legend & as anyone knows me as a film geek, I’ve got a particular affinity for silent comedy. I find it’s a rare distinction for people my age to have that unfortunately. But for all his films, #SafetyLast may remain his most iconic, given its pulse pounding building climbing sequence where Lloyd’s character, a small town guy reaching for success while plugging away as a put upon department store clerk, engages in a store publicity stunt by climbing atop a building. The film’s iconic sequence, shot in #LosAngeles is of true film history lore: the image of Lloyd’s “The Boy” character dangling from a clock high atop a building, is one of #cinema’s most iconic images ever put to print. But the Boy’s climb is also seen as a metaphor for success as Boy, embodied y Lloyd, embraces the modern man: decent & caring, wanting to succeed against impossibly shitty odds, enduring a world full of challenges that would crush anyone else. Lloyd played that to perfection & caught the imagination of a country that needed both a regular guy & a total underdog. I’d encourage anyone to catch this #film both for entertainment value & historical value, given how forward thinking it is for American film. SL also has the distinction of being the only comedy to be on the #americanfilminstitute’s #100thrills list, a list where films like Hitchcock thrillers, horror films like Night of the Living Dead, war films like The Great Escape & action like Die Hard are firmly on the list: an example of its great distinction. #30DaysofCriterionCollection #CriterionCollection #30daysoffilmscholar

Ik heb deze film nog nooit zo scherp gezien. Hulde aan Criterion!

No doubt due to Jennifer Lawrence’s captivating performance (miraculously sustaining a somewhat respectful Russian accent throughout the film’s 140 minute runtime), Red Sparrow takes on a spellbinding tone, thus making it more engaging than it should be. Director Francis Lawerence works best when his camera is focusing on Ms. Lawerence. It gets increasingly more difficult for him, though, when he has to actually explain what his film is about. With multiple narratives melting into one another, Red Sparrow is assigned with the obligatory task to make it all make sense. In this regard the film falters. The film’s at its coolest and most relaxed witnessing the grooming of Jennifer Lawerence’s character, and, surprisingly, when its reveling in its outlandish display of violence. **1/2 our of ****
