Happy Criterion Tuesday to all! I have been interested in seeing these films since I saw displays about them in a film museum in Prague. Now, I can! This is also a pop-art edition available for a limited time, so definitely jump on that if you're interested. ~Virginia
I’ve just always kind of felt that I belonged in another era.//⠀
Y’all I have always loved old, classic, movies, but here lately I’ve gotten on an old movie kick. I want to know if you love old movies as much as I do and if so: what’s your favorite classic movie or movie quote? Also, who’s your favorite actor from back in the day?
Raging Bull (1980) -9/10-
Let me get one thing straight, Martin Scorcese’s “Raging Bull” is not a boxing movie!! It’s a PERFECT character study of a boxer with insecurities that affected his life and eventually his career. Whenever you can really understand your character’s motives and actions even if he‘s doing something “wrong”, then the movie did its job flawlessly. Jack Lamora was based on a real person, and his character was cleverly written and beautifully acted. We didn’t need much dialogue or heavy spoon-feeding messages to sympathize with him. Robert De Niro was terrific, he’s a master that knows how to conquer every scene even if he’s not saying a word. This is definitely De Niro’s best performance to date (along with Taxi Driver). Joe Pesci was amazing too and they both shared a beautiful chemistry on screen. All the fighting scenes might feel different but it’s only because Scorcese wanted to send a message through them. It wasn’t about people punching each other and one of them winning, it’s way more that that (especially that last fight, it was masterful and some shots are the best in the whole movie). “Raging Bull” is definitely not a movie for everybody, but it’s also one of the best character studies I’ve ever seen. #movie#film#cinema#critic#review#ragingbull#ragingbullmovie#robertdeniro#robertdeniromovies#martinscorsese#boxing#boxer#oldmovies#oldbutgold#drama#truestory#oldbutgoldmovies#ondvd#oscar#oscarmovies#lebanon#beirut#thisismyreview

Znate onog fotografa u filmu "Ford v Ferrari", u delu kada su kod Enzo Ferarija u Italiji? E pa taj sam fotograf mogao ja da budem, da sam se rodio u Italiji i kada bi na italijanskim maslinama rodilo grožđe 😎 Sa brkovima čovek, ili žena, bez diskriminacije molim, može svašta postići 🙄
