♥ late bloomer.



last night i watched the film the brothers bloom(2008),
which seems to have all the ingredients of a winning film:
a cast of amazing actors, colorful costumes, a great soundtrack
and gorgeous landscapes- but somehow falls flat in terms
of character development and story.

in fact, the character who stole the show is the one
who has absolutely no dialogue to speak of-
bang bang (played by rinko kikuchi) is an all-knowing,
highly evolved, quirkily dressed con artiste who says more in her
facial expressions and gestures than anyone with an actual
speaking role says throughout the entire film.

  5. i know i said i loved this movie too, but like you, i think it's my love for bang bang that really empowered it. when i think about it, the movie did lack a little something, but i couldn't quite put my finger on it. nonetheless. bang bang was simply worth it :)
