Mental is an oddball comedy with meaningful things to say about the proliferation of psychiatric diagnoses in today’s society. It maintains an interesting narrative on the latent craziness that exists in all of us, and when the comedy is derived from this rapport with the audience it is exceedingly satisfying to watch. On the other hand, the majority of the film is utter, utter wank. Mental is as stable as a schizophrenic, but ultimately you’ll be the one lobotomised.
Film is undoubtedly the art form that speaks to us the most here at Best For Film but there is one other that surpasses it. Music. Music is awesome. The right song can take your mood from FML to LMAO. The right song can mend your broken heart. The right music can cure a terminal disease. Ok, that last part was a little much but you get the drift. So, you can imagine how excited we get when music and film become one. Here follows a list of our favourite uses of music in film.
With Bridesmaids soon upon us and the furore over the long-awaited wedding scenes in Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 about to reach fever pitch, we can’t avoid the thorny subject of movie marriage. So instead of beating brides and grooms (with a large stick), let’s join them and celebrate the 10 best things about movie weddings. All together now ahhhhh (puke).
Here at Best for Film towers, we prefer a side of drama with our wedding feasts. Drawing on a few of cinema’s more dramatic nupitals, we comprise a series of “what if” scenarios that would have The Royal Family shaking in their seasonal sitcom, and which might lend The Royal Wedding an air of watchability.
