After Dustin Boltjes of Skeletonwitch contributed a column on must-see horror flicks, we decided to open the topic up to the members of other bands. Why? Well, in addition to music and literature, we’re huge movie buffs and feel maybe your life could benefit from a big screen broadening.
So here for you now is a new column from Nervosa vocalist and bassist Fernanda Lira.
A Clockwork Orange
That’s my favorite movie! I’m not saying it’s the best one, because, as a film lover, it’s really hard to pick just one as the best, but to me, it means many things! It’s not only beautiful and cool esthetically, but is also very current in many ways! Also, it makes you think about the human behavior and also about our dearest valuable: our power of choice! It’s worth the watch! Also, Stanley Kubrick is one of my face directors of all times, he’s very versatile, and can explore many different subjects in his movies with mastery!
Quentin Tarantino is the one to me, I don’t care what anybody says about him! He’s one of the craziest minds in the movies scene without being boring, pietas or extremely ‘cult.’ I love all his masterpieces, but his last ones, “Inglorious Basterds” and this one I’m recommending are very distinct, because they involve historical aspects, which is really cool! In “Django Unchained,” he let us aware of how the reality if slaves was, which was pretty sad, but at the same time he can leave his trademarks there: awesome acting, bloodshed, humor and his unique way of non-sense but brilliant direction!
Martin Scorsese is one of my favorites directors as well! He’s the master on making movies about the mob and also everything related to human aspects when they deal with money, drugs and power! As a mob movie fan, “Goodfellas” is one of my favorite movies ever, along with “The Godfather!” He can really take out wonderful and natural actings from who works with him and also has a real gift when writing script: slight touches if intelligent humor and stories that are really well connected is what he really does best, and that’s pretty clear in “Goodfellas!”
