Magic in the Moonlight
While Allen’s new picture, "Magic In The Moonlight," isn’t even close to being a disaster (for that, see, well, "Scoop"), I don’t think it’s unreasonable…
Hello, I'm Omar Moore. I was born and raised in London, where I grew up before moving to New York City with my parents. After branching out in the Big Apple on my own for a number of years, I moved west to San Francisco. I love America and its promise. We all need to do our small part to make this great country even better for all. Where a film is concerned, it is never "only a movie." Images mean something. They have unyielding power and influence, whether in "Birth of A Nation," "Un Chien Andalou," "Night Of The Hunter," "Killer Of Sheep," "Persona," "Psycho," "A Clockwork Orange," "Blazing Saddles," "Straw Dogs," "Soul Man," "Chameleon Street," "Do The Right Thing," "Bamboozled" or "Irreversible." A filmmaker generally doesn't put images in a film if they are meaningless.
My love affair with film -- with cinema -- has endured for decades now, and my girlfriend shares the same passion for movies. I am awestruck by the brilliance of Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" - the essence of perception and recollection. I love the haunting quality of Fellini's "La Dolce Vita." I adore the visions of Kubricki n the great "2001: A Space Odyssey" and the beauty of "Eyes Wide Shut."
