Casablanca - One thing that blew me away in this movie the the flawless beauty of Ingrid Bergman. What a classic beauty she is. Her face just radiates in the screen. Her sharp nose, her flawless skin, her smile, the way she carries herself we can go on and on. She being there in the movie is enough reason to watch this movie.
Adrian Lyne thy name is Sensuality. His movies Fatal Attraction, Indecent Proposal, Unfaithful are some of my favorite movies. He has also directed the serious movie Jacobs Ladder. Now coming to 9 1/2 weeks this is the most sensual movie from his archives.
Mickey Rourke is very handsome in this movie and his smile is so seductive. Kim Basinger portrays the vulnerable woman very well. Mickey Rourkes smile is highly infectious. Photography and soundtrack are some more pluspoints. The song "You can leave your hat on" has one of the erotic performance I have seen on screen. Kim Basinger scorches the screen. The opening scene of New York streets, the dining room scene, the subway scene in rain the photography adds to the sensuality.
Though I have heard about Woody Allen I had always postponed watching his movies and strangely I have never come across his movies in any of the english movie channels except for one time when they showed his movie and I was running late for something.
And specifically about Match Point, this movie was noticed by me when I had just landed in London but I gave it a miss.
Now after watching Closer and learnt from Closer forum that Match Point is in the same league I was determined to watch this movie this time and got hold of the DVD.
Watching this movie was an experience. First the only music in the movie comes in the form of some Opera song, otherwise atleast I didnt hear any music. The title cards are not shown in hollywood style rather the entire movie had a look of serial. Having said the movie is top notch though the plot is something which we are used to.
I have always believed that luck plays a major role in anyones life however hard working the person may be. Have had few argument…
