Yes Brad - Brad Pitt // "It doesn't mean fuck-all to me until...until you live it. That's why I never understood growing up with, 'don't do this, don't do that,' it's all about don'ts, and I was like how the fuck do you know who you are and what works for you if you don't find out where the edge is, where's your line? You've got to step over it to know where it is."
Here we go again. “Matthias and Maxime” begin their journey. Ten years ago, shooting began on “I Killed My Mother”. Time flies, but films stay. Et c’est reparti. « Matthias et Maxime » commencent leur aventure. Mettant en vedette Gabriel D’Almeida Freitas, Pier-Luc Funk, Antoine Pilon, Samuel Gauthier, Adib Alkhalidey, Catherine Brunet, Marilyn Castonguay, Micheline Bernard, Anne Dorval et moi. Dix ans ont passé depuis le début du tournage de J’ai tué ma mère. Le temps file, les films restent. Photos : @shaynelaverdiere
I’m late to the party I guess but it’s never too late to compliment innit. Last night, I was blown away by Lean on Pete. Having read very little about it, I was convinced - by the trailer I assume - we were embarking on a typically sweet coming-of-age adventure, soaked in folklore and Badland beauty. But we were deeply troubled and moved by the film, continuously caught off guard by its harshness, as it exudes its teenage despair with incredible elegance. But amidst despair poetry finds its way. It has been long since I’ve been able to appreciate such complete writing, especially when it comes to characters. In every single way, for every single part in this film. The humans of Lean on Pete are raw and terribly flawed, but so terribly sincere in their faults. They don’t apologize for being cruel and no writer attempts to redeem their cruelty. The result is, for me, brutally real, and with very little left to hope for as Charlie Plummer - who’s so wonderfully fragile - journeys through the desert in search for tenderness and decency. I was blown away by Andrew Haigh’s world and style. Thank you so, so, so much to all the excellent artists involved. A lesson, no doubt, which I’ll be looking up to with great, great admiration. X
