Two Words: Tom Ford,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Single Man [DVD] (DVD)
When I first read that Coliin Firth and Matthew Goode were gonna star in this movie AND Tom Ford, top designer, direct, I immediately bought the book and read it in one go. Amazing.
The movie has absolutely NO flaws! The cinematography is outstanding - it is obvious that the man behind the camera is well versed with texture and colors: All scenes have a sort of velvety feel to them - incredible.
And you can tell that a top men's wear designer was behind wardrobe.
The only thing that annoys me and it annoys me a lot: The movie is about Colin Firth's character dealing with his male partner's passing and even though Julianne Moore's character comforts him hers is a minor role, but still her face (beautiful, admittedly) graces both the DVD and CD covers ... and no major photos of Matthew Goode.
I wonder whether this out of proportion feature of Julianne Moore's character is due to the fact that "you cannot have two male lovers on a cover" and/or in order to sell tickets/DVDs you need a man and a woman on the cover ... Well, that IS my only complaint, so preach.
And please buy the CD too - the score is fantastic.
