This is the “out of the ordinary” post: the nominations for the Golden Globes are in! And yes, my heart beats a little faster because there’s so much love for vintage on this year’s list.
Leading my personal favorites list is The Artist, a film set in the 1930s and shot entirely in black and white. A silent movie. A true decleration of love to film history and an almost lost art of filmmaking. It is closely followed by Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen’s latest masterpiece. A film that describes that longing for a world so different from ours and still so very much alive if only we look for it. The Help comes in third on my list. A great adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s book with a stellar cast of women who warped me right back into the not so swinging sixties.
More appreciation for vintage is reflected in The Adventures of Tintin, J. Edgar, Mildred Pierce and My Week with Marilyn. Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey and War Horse, although set in the beginning of the 20th century, also go on my list for getting recognition. All very different projects and not always my cup of tea but worth watching nonetheless.
