Am primit o nouă leapşă cinefilă, de data aceasta de la maestrul Film Sinopsis: 5 filme pe care le-aş (re)vedea indiferent de stare şi anotimp. Challenge accepted, după cum am şi răspuns, aşa că acum am de ales din sutele de filme preferate. Mi-e greu să mă decid, de fiecare dată când vine vorba la făcut un top (mai ales un all-time), aşa că le trec pe primele 5 care-mi vin în minte, plus un citat, OK? În ordine cronologică, să nu fie cu supărare, nu de la cel mai la cel mai… 🙂
Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)
E unul dintre primele filme în care l-am văzut pe Robin Williams, şi-n care m-am îndrăgostit iremediabil de talentatul actor american. Îl revăd, de fapt, în fiecare an, în preajma zilei mele de naştere, e un fel de ritual de-al meu.
“You know, you’re very beautiful. You’re also very quiet. And I’m not used to girls being that quiet unless they’re medicated. Normally I go out with girls who talk so much you could hook them up to a wind turbine and they could power a small New Hampshire town.”
Forrest Gump (1993)
Am mai scris-o, şi o mai scriu: e magistrală atât povestea, cât şi interpretarea lui Tom Hanks. Încă un actor/film pe care îl revăd cu drag de fiecare dată, pentru că mă duce în copilărie, unde totul era frumos, era cald şi bine, departe de problemele adulţilor.
“That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I’d just run across the great state of Alabama. And that’s what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going.”
Fight Club (1999)
Şi romanul, dar şi filmul, sunt, pentru mine, două piese de referinţă.
“Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! Third rule of Fight Club: if someone yells “stop!”, goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: the fights are bare knuckle. No shirt, no shoes, no weapons. Seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Fight Club, you have to fight.”
“Come on, babe, why don’t we paint the town?”… Un musical de excepţie, ale cărui melodii le ştiu la orice oră din zi şi din noapte, atât de mult mi-au plăcut, plus scenele de dans, ca să nu mai zic de actori, unul şi unul.
“I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but if Jesus Christ lived in Chicago today, and he had come to me and he had five thousand dollars, let’s just say things would have turned out differently.”
Under the Tuscan Sun (2003)
Povestea emoţionantă a lui Frances şi peisajele mirifice din Toscana sunt doar 2 dintre motivele pentru care pot să mă uit la filmul ăsta on & on. Love it! 🙂
“Do you know the most surprising thing about divorce? It doesn’t actually kill you. Like a bullet to the heart or a head-on car wreck. It should. When someone you’ve promised to cherish till death do you part says “I never loved you,” it should kill you instantly. You shouldn’t have to wake up day after day after that, trying to understand how in the world you didn’t know. The light just never went on, you know. I must have known, of course, but I was too scared to see the truth. Then fear just makes you so stupid.”
