A Single Man

I finally had a chance to see the movie that has garnered buzz from nearly every niche of press- general entertainment, fashion, lifestyle, and film. If both TMZ and WWD have something to say about it, you know it's going to be special.

Incredibly inspiring, so beautiful to watch yet so painful to behold, and best of all, overtly Tom Ford. Humour, sadness, anger, fear- it was like an elevator of emotions. On this elevator, the soundtrack was powerful; a perfect complement to the passion that consumes the audience.

And over and over again all I felt was claustrophobic. A tremendous achievement for any first time director.

Beyond the superior quality of the film and storyline, the styling and grooming was phenomenal. Julianne Moore's character screamed perfection with a pinch of dishevelment. Contrived? Maybe. Sincere? Yes. How to be both? Only Tom Ford.
