Some films I've seen recently

A LATE QUARTET


Very good indie film. Really quiet at first, then builds beautifully. At times, painful. Such a great cast - Catherine Keener, Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman and a few other really good actors. Written and directed by Yaron Zilberman.

Great character driven film. For all those aspiring and young filmmakers out there who want to make a character driven film, watch this. Every character wants something, has flaws, needs to overcome obstacles - all very real. Excellent film.

I AM LOVE

Italian film directed by Luca Guadagnino. Tilda Swinton is amazing in this film. 

Deals with the lack of passion in one's life, then the sudden emergence of passion, and how that changes everything. A beautifully shot, subtle drama. Much like A Late Quartet - it is all character driven, not plot driven at all. Starts slow, and builds and builds. Really dealing with desire, and what we are pursuing in life, or what we should pursue.
