Wow, I had no idea the guy who directed "Control" which I loved, directed this new George Clooney movie. I'm strange and have all these odd things I stick by. One of them is, that you could not pay me to ever watch a George Clooney movie, I just can't stand the dude. So far, I have never, ever seen a Clooney movie. This one looks good, but I'll be keeping my strange habits and will not see this move. But, it makes me want to watch Control again!
His photos and clips which I knew before made me watch Control. I liked it A LOT. Opposed to nervas I really dig Clooney, he has that cool untouchable aura in his roles. Kind of unreal being so smart and keeping his countenance all the time.
That is one sweet photo! I wouldn't mind having that hanging in my house! Cool stuff Ponder. For one second I thought it may have been taken during Coffee and Cigarettes because the background looked similar. But looking at this pic, Tom looks younger and it's a different table, etc.
I loved that film, i think it was one the best, if not the best, Clooney perfomance. Very subtle and understated, just like the film. Beautiful ending too, quite poetic. I think Corbjin, seems to have a very interesting way on making movies, very image oriented, which makes sense since is a photographer. "Control", is one the best bio pics ever.
While he's not as endlessly fascinating as William Burroughs, or as masculine as Nicole Kidman, Clooney is okay by me. He was in that hillbilly music movie, and that was good. He's been in a lot of good movies, really. Maybe not enough of them were in black and white, or comprised of all Farsi and Tagalog dialogue or something to satisfy a certain audience, I don't know. Some people are hard to please.
I watched the documentary on Corbijn, which was weird as he seemed to be trying to hide from the camera throughout. He has an eye for a good shot, which makes his photos and films visual candy. I found the documentary a bit dull though and fell asleep.
I think the dog enjoyed it though as he was still wide awake when I woke up on the couch at around 4am.
