Some days it feels like every ruddy actor out there is getting on set and making shit up. With all of the apocryphal stories about improvised lines and made up scenes you begin to wonder why Hollywood still needs screenwriters at all. Normally these tales are 100% bull. And no matter how many times Dustin Hoffman says he made up the “I’m walking here!” line we all know that he really didn’t. Every now and then though something comes along that just feels real. So here are the best, non-surgically enhanced wowza lines in cinema history. (Hello Boys! Yeah, they’re real.)
Savages is curious, in that it’s not the sort of film you might associate with the often solemn, politicised pictures of Oliver Stone. In contrast, this is a lively, breezy crime-thriller, buoyed by a sunny tone, some very dark humour, and – a few bland leads aside – some very memorable characters.
With seven shorts directed by seven directors, 7 Days in Havana is less a feature film and more a collection of shorts unified only in celebrating an incredible city. If narrative isn’t really your thing then it’s well worth a look, even if it’s only to check out the beautiful, undulating Cuban women and some equally beautiful shots of Havana, but at over two hours long you’ll find yourself thinking that maybe A Mini-Break in Havana might have done the trick.
Total Moron Zone?
SET PHASERS TO oh just shut up John don’t even bother.
