Alamar is about Natan, 5 year old boy who is moving to Italy with his mother after she and his father ended their relationship. This film follows Natan and his father on their last summer together.
Whenever I watch a film, I always do a little research about it afterward and I read that this was filmed and “directed” by a team of two people! I’m so impressed, as this was such a beautiful and real film. While some scenes were staged, the story and the characters are all real.

My friend recommended me to watch a documentary about formula 1 racer Ayrton Senna. Over the past week or so I have discovered how interested in formula 1 racing I actually am, as I have been obsessively watching interviews and clips on Lewis Hamilton.
This is such a good documentary because you really get a feel of the sport and a feel of who Senna was as a person. How sensitive he was and how driven and passionate he was about the sport. It's one of the best documentaries I have ever watched and the soundtrack is just incredible.
A friend of mine recommended this film to me over the holiday and I barely found the time to watch it a few days ago. I can honestly say that I didn't really understand what was going on when I watched the trailer, I just know that I value my friend's taste and that the movie looked like it was shot beautifully so I decided to give it a chance. It's about a plastic surgeon whose wife gets in a car crash and burns. He becomes obsessed with cultivating the perfect skin in which he could've saved her. BUT THERE'S SO MUCH MORE TO IT!!! It's really interesting as it is eery and strange. I suggest if you have a little bit of time on a Friday or Saturday night to indulge in it.

I find Frida to be a "heavy hitter". A woman so advanced for her time, a feeler, a woman who created the the life she wanted and didn't take no for answer. She is one of my biggest inspirations. In 2002 Julie Taymor made a biopic about my darling's life. It's a must watch and beautifully shot. Here are some stills from the film.
The Fall directed by Tarsem Singh is probably one of the most visually appealing movies I have seen in a really long time. I didnt care much for the acting or the storyline but what lacked in those areas was made up in the set design, cinematography and costume design.
Not really a Woody Allen fan, however, I watched Alice for the first time the other night and was so intrigued by it. I thought I'd share!
Alice is basically a very well off housewife that has comes to the realization that she wants more meaning out of her day to day life.
Here are some stills of some really wonderful details throughout the film.
