Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Elegy (2008)

Directed by Isabel Coixet

Starring Penélope Cruz, Ben Kingsley, Dennis Hopper, Patricia Clarkson


With these kinds of insights into being an older man, I’m surprised that the film was directed by a woman. Kingsley delivers a comfortably awkward performance. Cruz is a natural beauty.

Really struck a chord with me. I’ve been that guy so many times. But as engaging as their relationship was, I found myself being pulled out of the movie by the fact that a guy that needy and jealous would not last 30 seconds with a girl that beautiful in real life.
