I am an aspiring writer and I am a free lance Locations Assistant in film and television
Some dreams seem safe in the moment but upon waking reflection feel like nightmares. This may not be the best allegory for viewing Picnic At Hanging Rock but it's the best I can conjure. This movie is chilling in the oddest ways. To be clear, I love this movie. I looooove this movie.
Weir takes us through a hypnotic account of an unsolved mystery from the turn of the 20th century in Australia. Chronicling the disappearance of several young women…
My 3000th movie!
The first half of The Lady Eve plays out much more earnestly than a typical Preston Sturges movie. The con artists are subtle and dignified. The mark is a chump but not especially so. The story starts with a charming meetcute and proceeds into a fairly decent romcom. The first half of this film is almost it's own movie, climaxing with the heartbreaking moment of truth where Barbara Stanwyck's reputation as a con woman is revealed.
I don't know what I could possibly add to the conversation about this metaphysical masterpiece, except to say I just rewatched it with the 12 year old I babysit and he laughed his ass off while asking aloud the questions about the universe the movie begs us to ask.
Well done, movie!
