My Blueberry Nights
I had been told that this film is a waste of time, but Natalie Portman is yummy in my opinion, and since blueberries are equally as yummy, how could I go wrong?
I felt that I owed it to my tongue/taste buds to try it.
And Indeed, it is a film filled beginning to end, with rich, flavorful, cinematography-wise splendor. These onscreen dessert-like delights include the presence Portman, who is one of the films brightest qualities. Like a slice of pie, her - along with a few other lush characteristics, require a glass of milk while taking them in. The performances of Jude Law & Rachel Weisz (though not at her best) could be included, as well as those gorgeous colors and artistic camera angles.
Credit must also be given for including Chan Marshall & her music in the movie. Her face was a nice surprise.
The story and flow of Blueberry does have it's weak points, (the casting of Norah Jones is included - The movie would have shifted into an entirely different place had I been cast in her role) but I enjoyed it for my own reasons and would still recommend it.
