Summer of Film

Someone asked me about film suggestions on tumblr a while ago and I swore I would do a Top 10 list of my all time favorite films. However, let's just live for the moment. Here are a couple of film suggestions for those nights where you just want to stay in and let the air conditioner run with no lights on so your place looks like every music video ever made in the early 2000s. And by that I mean Ginuwine- "So Anxious".

 2046 is Wong Kar Wai's 2004 follow-up film to "In the Mood for Love," which I have yet to see unfortunately. This film is about a writer, Chow who has affairs with several women in a Hong Kong hotel. You can imagine there is an intense amount of unrequited love in this film. Hence, why I'm so intrigued by it. I'm not one for mush-y notebook-esque films. This one was raw in emotion and bewildering in imagery. I really should own it.




The next film I'm suggesting is 1970s' A Swedish Love Story. I actually was introduced to this film after I watched a music video for Thieves Like Us- "Shyness."





If you want a thorough description for this film, I can't give it to you because I was confused in certain bits of the film. The film is about 2 youths, Par and Annika in Sweden who are going through all of the awkwardness of adolescent relationships along with their really strange families. There was some weird stuff going on in this film. For instance, there was one character called, "Ice-Man," who randomly punches Annika's sister, Eva in the face while they were laughing and enjoying some sort of sit-down party. Color me confused. I'd still watch it several times though.


XXXO.
