A matter of style
7 August 2002 | by (Seville, Spain) – See all my reviews

A matter of style. I saw Tomorrow's Bacon about a year ago. Its outstanding art direction, score, and acting have so much style. The kind of style that filmmakers tries to achieve when they want to win an Oscar (see Ron Howard's Beautiful Mind, he "tried"), but they rarely get it because subtlety is not among their vocabulary. Tomorrow's Bacon is subtle from its title to its narrative. Mainly its narrative, character's emotions flow so well that you can watch this film without sound and understand the story. I'm glad the director used color instead of B/W (a showiness nowadays). If Scorsese's short film The Big Shave was considered a master piece, I can't wait to see Norton's first feature film.
