I haven't seen it yet...but Mom says it comes out on Feb.26...and I can predict this movie will take a top 5 or 10 position in my favorite movies.
1) It has my favorite male actor (Jason Schwartzman)
2) The colouring is incredible.
3) I do judge a book by its cover, and this movie has a GREAT cover ;)
I can just tell. It's gonna be super duper :)
* My dream job would be to design movie covers and the opening credits. For real.
(My favorite opening credits are Juno, Superbad and Amelie)
I watched this one last weekend. I totally picked it based on 4 things. That 1) it had the sundance brackets (Alice pointed those out to me one time, and I've totally realized thats my style of movie.) 2)What a wonderful title, the Squid and the Whale. 3) I loved the cover design. 4) Great Font. Lol, boy i sound shallow.
It was not what I expected...and was actually quite stressful. But while I watched it, I read a bloggers review, and it made a lot more sense. It's meant to document the unexpected-disfunctional family and not cushion the viewers stress towards their lives. The characters are hardly likeable, but yet oddly understandable. It's disturbing, and sad. But also incredible. Made me very glad I don't have kids thru this divorce.
I'm going to rent 3 more movies tonight. (I rent 3 movies every 2nd Friday... and watch them thru the weeks.) I'm thinking Frida, 2046 and Royal Tenenbaums.
Any other suggestions?
