Movieum

December 21, 2009

The Movieum of London – the top attraction dedicated to film. My home ‘movieum’ these days in a nutshell:

Humphrey Bogart in ‘The Maltese Falcon‘ (1941) as a detective and a suspect who doesn’t ‘mind a reasonable amount of trouble’ … and gets it all throughout the movie.
* * *
Watch Out for the Automobile‘, (original title: Берегись автомобиля, 1966) – the fun moments never end in this crime/romance movie until The End. Brilliant performance, witty comments, reminding of Robin Hood…
* * *
To Forget Venice‘ (1979) – painful memories and even more painful present. A movie on loss and pain.
* * *
The Devil Wears Prada‘ (2006) – The Devil Chooses Prada, the Devil Wears Prada… Meryl Streep stunning and devilishly angelic on life and choices.
