I have come to acknowledge and accept my mental illness for some time now. For the most part I have…
The Virgin Suicides
Beautiful, mysterious, haunting, invariably fatal. Just like life.
A group of male friends become obsessed with five mysterious sisters who are sheltered by their strict, religious parents.
The title is trivial as a spoiler for the film. To clarify, The Virgin Suicides is not about teenaged girls killing themselves, in the least is it because of overbearing parents keeping them from sex. It's about youth ending, idealism crumbling and life changing; the thoughts of emptiness in the happy-go-lucky days of unbeknownst perfection turning into the oddity that is growing up, finding love, discovering sex and making the rest of your way for yourself after your parents can no longer. It's quite simply lovely.
The film's surface rests heavily on this eponymous tragedy, but it isn't this under the face value, especially in the sense of tone. Sofia Coppola does transfer between making the mood an awkward teen…
Do you have a film that makes you so happy but so completely sad at the same time? Because this film, this hazy and soft and sparkly film is mine.
tag yourselves i'm the virgins that committed suicide
As soon as we see the title it suggests that you are going into a depressing film and this certainly is one. With a mysterious, melancholic and sometimes haunting atmosphere Sofia Coppola was able to do a solid debut with her The Virgin Suicides.
This tells the story of five beautiful girls, full of life are forbidden to live their adolescence in a normal way by the restricted orders of their religious parents.
Is difficult to talk about this film without spoiling much and I don't wanna do it for the ones who haven't seen it yet. I will just say that freedom is one of the best things we can have in life. Living in cloistered is not easy or good for our mental health.
The performances are solid from all of the actors, it's visually beautiful and has a great the soundtrack.
the only thing that would've made this suicide squad better is margot robbie
A narrative that flows like a calm current and weaves together a story that somehow manages drastic tonal shifts in a beautiful but cohesive manner.
The Virgin Suicides isn't about the suicides themselves, nor about the actual mystery surrounding them; hell, the film tells us everything about both at the very beginning. The film is about the way it happens. It's akin to a coming of age film but flipped upside down. The girls didn't get that coming of age story because they were refused it. The Virgin Suicides is more about both the tragedy and mystique that comes with adolescence, along with all the disconcerting and uncomfortable feelings, and what rejecting it feels like to the victims.
could boys maybe not be so creepily obsessed with girls all the time? thanks i'd really appreciate it
Why people (including stupid old me) dislike this quality filmé
Narrator at Begin of Film: these girls are LITTERALLY gonna die
Audience: okay sure
Audience: >:0 what
very slow, very calm
kind of a nice movie for when you're depress
Has there ever been a better dream team than Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola??
Sofia Coppola's directorial debut drags stodgily amidst a shallow narrative that should have been so much better
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie will make you think. Especially about the whole copycat component of it. Like was it because the sister were cooped up with no communication they all took their lives? Were they embarrassed? Were they bored? We may never know.
My second Sophia Coppola film, after Lost in Translation (which I consider a masterpiece). Despite that, I wasn't expecting another masterpiece, but rather curious about the other works from her.
I am not disappointed. Clearly The Virgin Suicides doesn't have all the virtues of the former, but it still a very concise, beautifully shot and thoughtful film. It's a very nice insight on pressure over women, specially on young girls.
I'm happy I watched this one.
sofia coppola makes the male gaze into something dreamy and beautiful. how does she do that
