Brilliant - I like this key word approach. Though I haven't seen any of the films, I'm guess Persecution (Frustrating, detached, abrasive, motiveless) is French... BB

Lola Is Beauty said...

BB - Yep!

What's faux indie? I haven't seen 500 days yet, but I want to. Just wondering what faux indie means.

Lola Is Beauty said...

T & J - It means pretending to be indie. x

Rose said...

really like it- more than I thought I would, haven't seen it, all of those things- food for the soul, all of those things, haven't seen it, cute- maybe a bit faux but so many Zooey looks.

Lola Is Beauty said...

Rose - I love your comment! For a minute I was like, huh??? And I like Zooey, really I do - but I'm in a phase where I need films to be heartrending or life changing or at least thought provoking.

Love the concise to the point reviews that dont give away the plot! I thought 500 days of summer was fun, triste and trying to be a bit nouvelle vague!

Wow you just listed films in which I want to see all of them. So far 500 Days of Summer drives me nuts with love, the rest I have yet to watch... I think An Education would be my next one, as I have the book...the book is a great read, i recommend it! Have a fabulous day. Toodles!
