Tom Ford

I’ve watched this Tom Ford documentary so many times … and yet each time I still take away something new. I love his movies, especially A Single Man with Colin Firth. Every frame, every moment was designed to the minute detail and is absolutely gorgeous. Combine exquisite design with a passion for filmmaking and there’s Mr. Tom Ford.

The New Criterion Channel

Ever since Filmstruck shut down, I’ve been in a bit of a movie funk. Then Criterion announced they will have their own channel, my mood lifted. Recently, I received an email from Criterion notifying of their new channel’s arrival in April 2019. New charter members get free Movie of the Week if they sign up now. So … of course … I signed up!! Excited about all these amazing classic films and extra goodies that will be coming our way. I especially love Director’s Commentaries. This week’s movie is MIKEY & NICKY directed by Elaine May which I’ve never seen before. Can’t wait!

Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch

All my close friends know I’m a die-hard fan of Wes Anderson. So it’s a given that I’m over-the-moon excited to hear that his next film is in the works. The French Dispatch is casting now, and heading the list of suspects are all my favorite actors, including Timothée Chalamet, Bill Murray, and Tilda Swinton. Rumors are that Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and Léa Seydoux may also come on board the Wes Anderson train. With production to wrap-up early next year, we may get to see The French Dispatch in theaters by the end of 2019. I will rewatch all my Wes Anderson DVDs and re-read all his screenplays until then. That’s the plan.

3 Days in Provence

Ever since I first read Peter Mayle’s A Year In Provence many many year sago, I’ve been dreaming of visiting Provence. This fall, I finally had a chance to actually do it. Even though it was a brief stay (3 days / 2 nights), it was just enough to get a feel for the region. Here are the Provence vlogs. Thanks for watching them with me!
