    Anna May Wong, hooray!

  3. ‘Practical Magic’: Sisters as Friends, Mirrors | Bitch Flicks

    Practical Magic is one of my go-to movies. It just makes me feel better. It is one of those movies that I can watch again and again and it stands the test of time.
    Me too!
  4. I loved the book Like Water for Chocolate, with its recipes interspersed in the chapters. The cinematic version is pretty darn good as well (this trailer is probably NSFW… and is also in Spanish),

  5. This is a pretty terrible trailer, but Mostly Martha is my favorite food movie. I love that Martha is an amazing cook who gets energy from cooking for others and loses her appetite when alone. It’s hard to watch this one on an empty stomach.

    (and I refuse to watch the American remake)

  6. Obvious inclusion in the great food movie list: Chocolat. I’d probably like the movie more without Johnny Depp. The book is also very good!

  7. Of course, Babette’s Feast is probably the most classic of food films. A great story, beautiful food… it’s all wonderful.

  8. A friend and I were talking about movies where the food is one of the best parts, and I think Eat Drink Man Woman certainly fits under that. Don’t judge the Ang Lee drama by this cheesy trailer, though, please.

  9. let’s be clear, while this movie is about a man, women will be in the movie. They won’t just be ancillary figures, and that is because of Ava.

  10. What happens when a director makes two movies from different viewpoints using the same plotline, then compiles them into one project? Director Ned Benson made two versions of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby — one from the viewpoint of Conor (Him) and one from Eleanor’s point of view (Her). If, as I did, you expect the compilation of the two films (Them) to include these differing takes, sorry to say that is not the case. Instead of the experimental feeling the trailer hints at, the film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them shares similarities with other grief-filled indie relationship dramas (Rabbit Hole and Rachel Getting Married specifically come to mind). What sets it slightly apart is the rhythm of this couple’s tragic story and the intensity of the actors’ performances. [Review: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby | Slackerwood]
