Movies – Recently Watched

Pi (1998) :

Darren Aronofosky has never disappointed you, has he? Requiem for a dream, Black Swan, The Fountain etc. are some of the movies he has directed. Pi is a nice movie to watch. Shot in black and white, this movie is about a geeky mathematician who is trying to figure out something, a pattern, which has some deeper meaning to it. This movie is very intense and the whole paranoia of the character displayed is really nice. Overall, it’s a good movie.

Jacob’s Ladder (1990):

Sometimes you need a dose of mind-bending movies and this movie really fits well. You get an intelligent, nail biting plot which has so many twists and turns that makes you thinks about a lot of possibilities. The movie is weird, creepy and unique. A Must watch!

Leaving Las Vegas (1995):

I had never thought that Nicolas Cage, an actor of so many pathetic movies, would have ever got an Oscar for his acting. But, boy, has he acted in this movie. What a fantastic flick! The chemistry between Cage and the actress, Elizabeth Shue, is quite amazing. They seem so natural in the roles they play. The whole emotions and vulnerability of the characters that has been shown, seems so genuine and flawless.

Like Father, Like Son (2013): 

These Japanese directors try to keep the things very simple and this is where they get distinguished. This movie has got a very unexpected plot which I should not be talking about. Just watch this beautiful movie and get overwhelmed with the simplicity of the characters.
