Feeling the need for some artistic stimulation that movie making can provide I scanned the recent releases of the redbox, before wheeling my way through the exit at Harris Teeter.
I had a choice between two, The Descendants with Dreamy Clooney and Melancholia with Kirsten Dunst and equally dreamy vampire Eric Skarsgard.
It took a minute to choose with all that dreaminess, but I settled on Melancholia. Nevermind the men, Kirsten Dunst is always exquisite.
I wish I had the words to describe the movie, but I don’t.
Did I love it? Oh, yes!
Is it for everyone? No. No, it’s not.
To help you decide if the movie might be for you, here and here are two great (yet different) reviews.
What I can say this morning after sleeping on it is that I now have another take my breath away film with imagery will live in my subconscious for life.
Melancholia has earned its place on my list next to Black Snake Moan (2006) and American Beauty (1999).
Fabulous films that stick.
