NETFLIX & CHILL #20


Fioravante decides to become a professional Don Juan as a way of making money to help his cash-strapped friend, Murray. With Murray acting as his "manager", the duo quickly finds themselves caught up in the crosscurrents of love and money. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

I liked this film as it featured two of my favorite actors in John Tuturo who directed and  wrote the film, produced by Bill Bock, Paul Hanson, Jeffery Kusama-Hinte and Woody Allen. The story and the film were very straightforward showing a bit of the Jewish culture within the New York setting that I found to be very interesting. The overall premise of the film I felt would come off corny, but it was charmingly funny and heartfelt and both Turturo and Allen worked well and even the A-list celebrity’s cameo interacted well within the films dynamic. So for FADING GIGGALO I give 3 ½ stars as a mildly funny film with a bit of a message on love and life.

NETFLIX & CHILL #19

THE BEST OFFER is directed and written by Giuseppe Tornatore and produced by Isabella Cocuzza and Arturo Paglia. From the moment of seeing the main character with his uptight and peculiar way I knew throughout this film the story needed to push him to become something else or something new. The pace of the film accentuated this metamorphosis gradually moving at a pace that forced the character to adapt rapidly or fail at gaining what he deeply wanted, which was the love of a woman to share his greatest possessions. BEST OFFER was shot in a very straightforward way with limited creative flurries in camera movement allowing all attention to be on the main characters fight to uncover the truth. So for BEST OFFER I give it 3 stars as it entertained me yet disappointed me with an ambiguous and sad ending for a character with so much potential.

NETFLIX & CHILL #19


Sam Ellis is a man on the rise - a federal prosecutor on the cusp of a bright political future. But what was meant to be a one-time experience with a high-end escort instead turns into a growing addiction. His moral compass unraveling, his new demon threatens to destroy his life, family and career. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

ZIPPER is directed and written by Moa Stehpens and co written by Joel Viertel, produced by Marina Grasic, Mark Heyman, and Amy Mitchel-Smith. As one who watches another political drama / thriller entitled the House of Cards, a series on Netflix, the character motivations seem familiar. Whether or not you view politicians to be drawn from another cloth and held to a higher standard I think a great deal of Americans understand there is a whole other game being played behind closed doors, which in many ways this film show. The pace of the film was warranted slowly unraveling the main characters vigilance to his family, wife and career goals only to have them pushed aside for the desire for high priced anonymous sexual encounters. As these escapades eroded the main characters value system putting his entire life in jeopardy you could feel the tension build asking ‘What if he got caught? The film shot and told in a straightforward manner could have used some cinematic choices to heighten the viewer’s experience. Overall I gave Zipper 3 stars as an entertaining glimpse of the pressures of political office.

NETFLIX & CHILL #18


Meeting the right person at the wrong time can be the best thing that ever happened to you.  (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

THIS ISN’T FUNNY directed by Paul Ashton, written by Paul Ashton and Katie Page, produced by Paul Ashton, Maria Menounos, Kate Page, and Lije Sarki. In this film that focuses on the life of a comedian it made me think of how secretly I would like to be a comedian myself. Yet as the film continued I realized how his was the story of the span of a relationship of a man and woman from beginning to well... to where the film ended. I founded it to be very refreshing that this story unfolded in a completely unexpected way. Then again who am I to say how a relationship should begin, but it just felt authentic and of course funny. I enjoyed the pace of the film and understanding the dynamics of a relationship evolve over time the leaps ahead of the relationship depicted also felt right, while also packing the most hilarious situations while still seeming true. Whether you would call this a romantic comedy or not I felt this story stayed away from the things that ruin most romantic comedies in that it used real life rather than portraying a fairy tale and feel good tactics to carry the viewer along. In the end I gave THIS ISN’T FUNNY 3 1/2 stars as I liked the balanced of humor, pace, and drama in developing a story about a love relationship.
