I really adore this Woody Allen movie. It's fun and bittersweet and I love the story, writing and music. It uses one of my favorite concepts–where someone is pulled out of their element. It's a stranger in a strange world type of flick that employs Movie Magic, and celluloid fantasy meets harsh reality with hilarious results. The entire cast is fantastic, and i think its a stand-out role for Jeff Daniels, who had to convincingly play the naive, guileless film character 'Tom Baxter' and his counterpart–ambitious actor, Gill Shepard.
I was on a kick making my 'wishful thinking' movie posters this past week. These are posters and manipulations that feature Jon-Erik in roles I would love to see him in. Check out my version of 'The Purple Rose of Cairo' poster below.
Here are two more recent Movie posters I made featuring Jon- Tron Legacy was an awesome film!
I'd like to make this a staple feature of this blog for the new year-sharing certain movies I love and why, along with perhaps a trailer or clip and poster...and of course, If I somehow manipulated Jon-Erik into the role, I will put that poster too. ;) I'm such a particular person when it comes to movies. I don't just love everything. Sometimes I'll love it, just because so-and-so is in it and makes an otherwise bad movie shine for me. But I have a big enough repertoire of films I enjoy to share them with the readers, perhaps once or twice or a month.
