Movie course day 3, and we are back on the road to awesome, with A Single Man.
Every single frame of this movie was so meticulously and beautifully shot, and knowing this was Tom Ford’s directorial debut made it all the more impressive; I guess that’s what happens when a fashion designer directs. Some people thought it was overkill [too many close ups, too much color saturation], but I loved every second of it!
Add to this the large dose of dark humor and a wonderfully depressing cast and story, and you have yourself a great movie.
Oh, I should probably mention what the movie is actually about, but I might as well let Tom Ford do that.
“It is a deeply spiritual story, of one day in the life of a man who cannot see his future. It is a universal tale of coming to terms with the isolation that we all feel, and of the importance of living in the present and understanding that the small things in life are really the big things in life.”
