Yesterday I watched "New York Stories" with a friend.
Martin Scorsese (segment "Life Lessons") Francis Ford Coppola (segment "Life without Zoe") (as Francis Coppola) Woody Allen (segment "Oedipus Wrecks")
Three stories happening in New York. The first, by Scorsese, is about a painter who creates his works helped by high volume music and an attractive assistant; second, by Coppola, is about a rich and bold 12 years old who helps her separated parents to reconciliate; third, by Allen, is a witty piece of comedy about the impossibility of getting rid of the son's role.
I loved the first movie, because the actor has the painting touch and the fight between the profession and love is well portrayed. And I laughed very hard about Woody Allen being chased by his old mother from the sky.
I like the music of Michael Jackson and some of the movies of Woody Allen, but after a while I got fed up by the movies of Allen, because the stile of filming and the way of acting (a lot of psychology). After that I liked Jom Jarmush, David Cronenburg and David Lynch movies more, and movies with the actors Robert deNiro and Al Pacino, and my favorite actrecces were Susan Serandon (Thelma & Louise -1991-, and Rocky Horror Picture show), Faye Dunaway, Emily Watson (Punch Love drunk Love, Breaking the Waves), Sharon Tate (Fearless Vampire Killers, Rosemaries baby; two Roman Polanski movies), Mia Farrow, Diane Keaton, Goldy Hawn, Michelle Pfeiffer and Kim Basinger.
George I write books on training, management and allied subjects and my friends are always quoting (usually when we've all had an ample supply of wodka!) "Those who can do, do; those who can't do, teach; those who can't teach, write books about it!!" Welcome to the forum - as the saying goes "you don't have to be mad, but it helps!" Leslie
