the must sees

my favorite movie ever.
sofia coppola also is my favorite director.
the aesthetics in marie antoinette are overwhelmingly feminine and breathtaking.
the fashion, the food, the love, the sex appeal.
i love every moment of this film.

you sometimes feel bad for laughing.
ryan gosling has a mustache & he is divine in this role.

another sofia coppola film. 
another kirsten dunst film.
pattern much?
the title of this film scared me for years, which is why i waited until recently to watch it for the first time. 
it didn't disturb me as much as i'd anticipated. which was a good thing.
the soundtrack is beyond. so is the film.

i've always loved this movie.
such a classic story. it really is the story in this that pulls you so close.
also, tim proposed to me right after watching this movie...
so i'm a bit of a fan.
and those last five minutes and of course, simon & garfunkel!

 my all time favorite scene resides in this film.
the party scene where they all take x. yes i know - sounds awful.
but the editing, the music, the ambiance of that scene.
you are there in that moment. a (drug free) bystander within that basement.
i'm a sucker for pretty much anything in slow and then fast motion, so you add some zero 7 and i'm in.
zach braff wrote, directed and starred.
what a badass!
the soundtrack is outstanding, as well.

PSH literally becomes truman capote in this movie.
i've watched it many times.
so much so, that i suggested we read "in cold blood" to my book club for march's book.
i got some weird looks.
nah, it's fine. i'll read it on my own time.

i used to have to sit through some of the most ridiculous movies on tv when i lived with my parents.
westerns, old black and white movies - you name it - i've probably seen it.
my mother loooooves the film, on golden pond.
she made me watch this when i was probably in my freshman year of college.
i secretly fell in love with it.
my pride didn't want her to know.
i've seen it several times since then and love it even more.
maybe i'll buy my mom this movie for her birthday this year.
