Fur - An imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus, 20 May 2009
This film is a must see! If not as a fan of Diane Arbus herself, for the dark and sometimes quite shocking story it portrays.
Robert Downey Jnr manages to still somehow, with that very sexy voice, keep the viewer charmed and drawn in even in the costume of all costumes, making it actually understandable how Nicole Kidmans character gets fasinated and quite obsessed with the 'freak' who moved in upstairs.
It is a nice idea of how Diane Arbus first starts to photograph the more 'un-usual' looking people, which made her so famous, but it is no way a story of her life & death, rather a 'snippet' of her life, or should I say, how her life could have been according to the writers.
This film is a hidden gem in both Robert Downey Jnr & Nicole Kidmans filmographies which did not get the fame and recognition I beleive it should have.
