-MOVIE OF THE WEEK- Something Wild (1986)
In the wake of the sad news that the iconic filmmaker, Jonathan Demme, has passed away at the age of 73, i thought it would only be appropriate to recommend a film from his rich library. Known for revolutionizing concert films as well as attempting all genres of film, from thrillers to comedies and doing them such ease and confidence, it is hard to just pick one picture from his vast filmography. What he perfectly achieves, is the balance of simplicity and invisible trickery. Each shot/scene/picture may seem simple at first glance but with a magnifier, you will see all the complexities hidden away so they don't get in the way of your viewing experience.
My pick is a personal favorite of mine. You can call it a quirky comedy, a road movie or a romantic action flick It has a lot going and I never get enough of it. A pure 80s film, that is timeless. The world of cinema lost someone special this week, but his films will live on forever.
