30 Day Film Challenge is a challenge that lasts thirty days. It gives me a chance to wax poetic about my favorite medium, and put up silly pictures/videos.
Day 1 – Your Favorite Film
Day 2 – Your Least Favorite Film
Day 3 – A Film You Watch to Feel Good
Day 4 – A Film You Watch to Feel Down
Day 5 – A Film That Reminds You of Someone
Day 6 – A Film That Reminds You of Somewhere
Day 7 – A Film That Reminds You of Your Past
Day 8 – The Film You Can Quote Best
Day 9 (today) – A Film With Your Favorite Actor (Male)
Another toughie. There are quite a few actors I really enjoy, some that have not made nearly enough movies for my taste.
So I will say Hollywoodland starring Adrien Brody.
Adrien Brody is one of those preternaturally beautiful men that I just get drawn to for some reason. I loved the way he played his character in Hollywoodland because there seemed to be something extra behind it. Not just a rough, scruff confidence detective man, and not just a working man who has family problems, but something even deeper and pure.
Funnily enough this film also has another actor I truly enjoy, Bob Hoskins. His voice is so effortlessly cool and he totally melted my heart in the Pigalle arrondissment of Paris, Je T’aime. But that’s another story.
And now, l’extra:
Yes, I decided to use this photo because Brody’s in this film.
Eric Chase Anderson. Yes, he is Wes Anderson’s little brother. Yes, he does the illustrations for the DVD covers to his films. But he is pretty darn cool in his own right.
