movie sundays

i have big admiration for tom ford. he's a great showman and has tremendous vision. he successfully transformed gucci in the 90s, i wouldn't call him a designer but a visionaire. his directorial debut "a single man" premiered at the venice film festival a few days back, and it was announced that colin firth won the prestigious "best actor" award for this film.



i am loving the 2mins trailer above. the costume and sets were ravishingly designed, which kind of reminded me of movies by hong kong auteur wong kar wai. his cinematography lush, and every nuances from the actors captivating.

"a single man" should be showing in UK cinemas next month. i cannot wait!

  1. Best shot:

    When Mr. Goode leans into the camera, in and out of focus, for a kiss.

  2. Incredibly excited about this.

    I'm not Tom Ford's biggest fan but I def. agree with the observations you've made about him and also the Wong Kar Wai comparison, esp. the smoke streaming from the mouth.

    Is it just me or is Julianne Moore typecast as the jilted lover?

  3. ^ My mistake, just read she plays the BF! Still, she does seem to play the cheated-on housewife quite a bit...

  7. Did Tom Ford grew up watching the BBC's P&P like I did? I have been in love with Colin since then
