This is a film about a man who is obsessed with fashion and who just happens to have the perfect job in which to indulge this obsession. It’s a wonderful film and I’ve never seen a happier person than Bill seems to be.
This was a fantastic film—violent but really good. It has a calm, quiet, slow pace matching the personality of the main character. Gosling is great, Bryan Cranston is practically unrecognizable, and Albert Brooks as the bad guy is surprisingly believable. I loved it!
My Week with Marilyn
I don’t normally like bio-pics so I didn’t see this one in the theatre even though I am a fan of Marilyn Monroe. However, unlike most bio-pics, this one is about Colin Cook with Monroe as a secondary character. This gave it an interesting perspective which I really liked. Michele Williams did an incredible job portraying the fragility, changeability and sadness of Monroe. The music was fantastic. I loved the film!
