Glory Bites

This is why we love movies

One of my alltime favourites from my childhood.

- Ladyhawke (1985) by Richard Donner

Probably this was the moment when I fel in love with Marion Cotillard and her incredible talent. 

- La Vie en Rose (2007) by Olivier Dahan

After seeing thin scene I couldn’t sleep for days … 

The Ring (2002) by Gore Verbinski

Silent film star Mary Pickford was unparalleled in her popularity for 20 years in silent films. She always played poor cute girls and her long golden curls made of her the original Amerca’s Sweetheart. Also she founded United Artist and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. When sound film arrived she jumped right in, making her first talkie “Coquette” in early 1929. She won the first ever Academy Award for Best Actress. 

I stayed away from Barbra Streisand movies for a long time … But once I saw Funny Girl I can’t get enough. She is over the top, larger than life, sparkles, tears, glitter and jazz hands. She is Broadway.

Probably the most famous striptease scene ever. 

From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) by Robert Rodriguez

There is some special kind of magic in the musicals, that touches us very deeply. “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” is a very special and unique film, every word in the script is sang. But even more important is a love story with a heart breaking and realistic end.

- Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (1964) . 

In my case, self-absorption is completely justified. I have never discovered any other subject quite so worthy of my attention.
— Laura (1944)
