Hope I haven't bored you to death with these past two days' reviews on movies associated with abstract art -- with today completing a triogy of recommendations that couldn't possibly have come to be without the artist portrayed by Ed Harris in this one, of course, Jackson Pollock. We all know what Ed looks like (and he does, in fact, look much like the drip-art creator himself) in the movie Pollock, so isn't it much nicer to just look at his co-star in the film? I thought so. Let's face it... I'm not even quite sure this pic is one of her from the flick come to think of it, but I'd rather look at Jennifer Connelly nude than Ed any day, so we'll leave it at that.
Anyway, though the first two movies were documentaries, this Oscar winner is a drama that has plenty of drunken paint splatter, yet unfortunately, none is on Jennifer. The art is amazing and the demons in the artist are frantic (bravo to Ed's acting and direction), but I'm not sure I understand what the art is or what it is supposed to represent or even if it's any good. But I like it. And I like the movie too (even though it has Val Kilmer in it which is usually a negative for me).
FilmBender is Funny Movie Reviews. I had to drive all the way to Romania to get the trailer for this one. Not sure why these three movies gave me such trouble finding good trailers. Just another reason I'm looking forward to getting back into the old groove tomorrow and barf up an action-packed flick... maybe even one with a good chance scene to really make me feel like a man.
