MIA at the Academy Awards because it failed to qualify due to its distribution date, I would not trade Blue Is the Warmest Colour for any of the films that are actually in the race. 3 hours of the best close ups cinema can produce with performances so faultless they'd put Meryl Streep to shame (Not that I think Streep would have ever been involved considering all the graphic sex). Perhaps the most explicit first love tale to have ever graced mainstream silver screens and one that is not going to be easily forgotten, much like your first heartbreak. It certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea either but I loved it so much I might even give oysters a go.
Did not find the eagles realistic enough. Not sure if some of the over the top dramatic arcs and dramatic orcs were actually meant to be that comic. Vaginal thrushes aside, I shall watch the sequels. Especially if the company is as entertaining and the Pannacotta actually works.
I am not sure why critics gave this one such a hard time. I had loads of fun ( even laughed outloud) and appreciated the terrific special effects and hilarious political satire. If you are ever in the mood for something silly you can't go wrong with this.
Inspired by the success of The Queen, the producers of The Iron Lady quickly acted to make a buck. They owe every cent made to Meryl Streep who is the only reason why anyone should ever see this shallow, uninspired and politically correct biopic of one of the most politically incorrect politicians that have ever lived. Props for the make up team as well! I'm still feeling sorry for Jim Broadbent and hope he got paid shitloads to waste his talent on the dull, two dimensional Denis Thatcher he got stuck with.
