Boyhood proving why Richard Linklater is one of the most important film makers around…

Ever since I saw Richard Linklater’s Slacker one late night on C4 many years ago that blew me away I’ve always admired Linklater who creates conceptual films but unlike many others he actually invests heavily in his characters making films like the Before… trilogy, Dazed & Confused etc a joy to watch especially with Boyhood and what a film.

So many great things about this film to mention but most of all how the idea of having the same actors play the same characters engages you so much despite it’s 2hr 40mins running time which breezes by and no such signposting throughout, we instead jump through different moments in Mason’s life and no silly dramatic storylines but instead an unspectacular life that anyone can relate to.

Yet another film proving why Linklater is one of my all-time favourite film makers and one of the most important too.

What I thought of Blue is the Warmest Colour…

In so many contemporary romantic dramas audiences always expect certain things to happen or are told by the film makers what is going on so, ignoring the fall out with the stars and director over his inappropriate behaviour, Blue is the Warmest Colour is an absolute refreshing gem going against those conventions with the incredible Adèle Exarchopoulos never being away from the camera, her devastating dynamic chemistry with Léa Seydoux, some of the best naturalistic photography I’ve seen and a surprisingly gripping character-led plot despite it’s hefty 3 hour running time - a triumph of French Cinema.

Didn’t think I’d enjoy Blue is the Warmest Colour this much, a triumph of French cinema…. #frenchcinema #blueisthewarmestcolour #blue #french #frenchfilm #cinema
