INTERVIEW - I talked about Ralph Fiennes and dandyism in my latest review so what’s better than following up with the interview of real-life British dandy Jack Guinness?
You’ve seen him in magazines and on the red carpets with fashion royalties Alexa Chung and Georgia May Jagger but did you know that he also writes weekly on his blog? Read him for insights on style, pop culture, life and… Ace Ventura.
REVIEW - I’m not really into Wes Anderson's cinema. Frankly, it bothers me a bit. I sometimes think I must be kinda dumb not to get how amazing his whole oeuvre is. It's unpleasant to be afraid of missing out on something great because you're not sharp enough.
I mean I would love to be able to dissect in minute detailThe Grand Budapest Hotel like fellow critics so brilliantly did but I guess I just have the following none mind-blowing thoughts to offer.
REVIEW - Waiting in the line to see Only Lovers Left Alive, I noticed that my fellow movie-goers were throwing worrying looks at me. I thought I had forgotten to put pants on but then it hit me : I was paler than usual that day and I was holding a cup of beetroot juice that looked a lot like blood.
Being mistaken for a wannabee-vampire kinda made my day. The sure thing though is that if I were indeed one, I would emulate Lestat and not the hipster bloodsuckers of Jim Jarmusch’s film.
TRUE BLUE - You were planning on spending this Valentine with Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt or Leo DiCaprio? Forget it: they are overbooked. Tonight, they have roughly ten million dates.
Knowing that everybody is going to turn to these actors for comfort doesn’t make me feel special. And I need to feel special. So here’s my list of underrated movie boyfriends we don’t always think of but definitely should for companionship on Valentine’s Day. What’s yours?
