As promo'ed on Friday, the Film Experience Blog turned 3 years-old on this busy busy weekend amidst all the festival coverage.
We celebrate as we always do... with Lists!
Nathaniel's 3 favorite...
movies with 3 in title: 3 Women ('77), Trois Coleurs ('93-'94), The Three Faces of Eve ('57)
3rd installments of a franchise: Ouch. This one is tough since #3s tend to astonish with their capacity for suckage (see also: this summer's releases) but I'm gonna go Trois Coleurs: Rouge (1994), Alien³ (1992) --yes I mean that, Cremaster 3 (2002)...though, technically, it's not the third is it since they weren't made in order
directors: Hitchcock, Almodovar, Allen (give or take many others)
books: The Great Gatsby, Le Petit Prince, Inside Oscar
tv shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Once & Again, Twin Peaks
foods: pad thai, coffee, anything w/ cheese (none of these inside the theater please)
mythological creatures: medusa, centaurs, lost silent films
actors about whom I have impure thoughts: Jude Law, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Brad Pitt
foreign movie stars (all time): Catherine Deneuve, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Liv Ullman
michelle pfeiffer performances: Susie Diamond (1989), Catwoman (1992), Ingrid Magnussen (2002) all of which she should've won Oscars for. Yes, in my world she has three.
childhood obsessions: Olivia Newton-John, The Muppets, Gene Kelly
nonhuman film characters: The Tin Man (The Wizard of Oz, 1939), Smitty (The Awful Truth, 1937), Pris (Blade Runner, 1982)
movie stars (classic): Natalie Wood, Montgomery Clift, Judy Garland
movies (ever): West Side Story (1961), Manhattan (1979), number three changes all the time so stop asking (1915-2002)
cinematic moments most likely to entrance me: a strong musical number, a good close up (if they've been used in moderation and if the filmmaker has the good sense to not cut away after 2 seconds), a woman lying to herself
