midnight in paris

Go see this movie.

There are so many reasons for absolutely loving this film. For starters it's directed by Woody Allen, and the way he captured the spirit and beauty of Paris is truly enchanting. If you have any sort of love for art, music, or literature, you'll find yourself in love and incredibly jealous of Owen Wilson's character. From dancing with Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald to inspiring a Picasso painting to talking rhinoceros with Dali, the movie packs in icon after icon, while managing to keep it believable {believable being a relative term since the story is focusing on time travel}.

Anyway, I was clearly enthralled by this movie. I sat in my seat for the entire two hours with a huge smile on face, unable to make it go away. Also I went by myself to a matinee on a Sunday. Do you know what kind of people go to a Sunday matinee of a Woody Allen flick? Couples apparently 70+. As if the movie wasn't good enough, I was also entertained by the audience's commentary. They showed a trailer for the new Tribe Called Quest documentary, just imagine a bunch of old people's reaction to that. Classic.

Seriously though, GO SEE THIS MOVIE.
