vicky christina barcelona

so despite what pretentious zombie might think, i do believe this is one of mr. allen's best movies in years.

ah, what to say about woody allen...

"You know, I like his films except for that nervous fellow that's always in them."

but hey, problem solved with this movie!
seriously though...
vicky christina barcelona is a look at life and love, and how people are never happy with what they've got, and honestly it's quite fun.
i don't have much to say about the movie, if you like woody allen go see it.
it's good, i promise!

you know, i've seen annie hall, and manhattan and while they're great movies they're not my favourite.
my favourite would have to be "sweet and lowdown"

it's a typical woody allen story, in the guise of a documentary about a fictional guitar player in the 1930's.
i may be biased due to my love of jazz guitar and the era the film takes place in, but the story itself is brilliant and sad. emmet is such a quircky and odd character, really unlikable honestly, but interesting.

so yes, i recommend you go see the movie about sexy spaniards and also the movie about the world's second best jazz guitarist.
