British actress Naomie Harris has been nominated for an Oscar for her role as a crack-addicted mother in the 2016 indie drama Moonlight. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some other roles she's played in her career.
A pretty funny free adaptation from a spanish novel into a very cinematographic and independant film by this director I once knew (really!). This is a story about an obsessed, film-crazed man (played by the director himself) who builds around him his own world out of a video rental store. He locks himself up in his very own reality where everything's got to be 'like in the movies'. When real life, responsibility (and bills) knock at his door, he tries to fool them the way one of the heroes in those rancid old westerns would have done: he then becomes a runaway, fleeing away with the girl he loves, living every minute 24 times a second; until their road comes to a sudden, unavoidable end: The End of the movie. I found it quite interesting. I reckon there is another film based upon the same book (more faithfully, I presume), but it appears to be more dull, despite of its featuring well-known spanish actors and higher budget.
