brianinLR posted a topic in Movie SuggestionsI'm not sure but I think you have put documentaries up for submission before so I wanted to suggest Unzipped. It follows designer Isaac Mizrahi through the creation of his 1994 fall collection. it's a really great look at fashion before it was all celebrity driven although a lot of celebrities do show up. It documents the peak of the supermodels. The filmmaker is Mizrahi's boyfriend at the time so some of it is incredibly personal. It's so 90s it's painful. June is Pride Month so I thought it would be a great film to talk about.
Episode 115 - The Stepford Wives (w/ Carina Chocano)
brianinLR replied to DaltonMaltz's topic in The CanonThis was one of those Saturday afternoon Million Dollar Movies when I was a kid. I saw it a lot for a year and then not since then. I'm surprised how much of it I remember. And I'm sure I walked around as a 7 year old quoting Bobbie. I was just going to have it on while I did some work but got sucked in and It's mostly solid. The performances were good and I have only good things to say about production design. Yes!
Episode 111 - Lost in Translation vs. Marie Antoinette (w/ Stephanie Zacharek)
brianinLR replied to DaltonMaltz's topic in The CanonMarie Antoinette is one of my desert island movies so obviously voted for it. It's a visual delight and i stan for Kirsten Dunst. If you haven't read the book by Antonia Fraser and are interested it is terrific. But they made me think i should rewatch Lost in Translation. I was not impressed when it came out. It just didn't catch me. but I'll give it another shot.
