Quotes

[first lines]
Scat: Marketing 101: if you live in any major city, you see 800 ads a day. In most of them, models are going to be looking at you like they want to fuck you. You're so used to this that you don't even notice it. But your body does. Your heart rate increases, you pupils dilate, you breathe faster, you become more alert. You've been tapped.

The Art of Marketing Yourself.
25 June 2013 | by boomerang_pipSee all my reviews

I'm really glad i watched this! highly recommended!

The story focuses the principle of advertising which is on creating an "image" - one that would make consumers crazy and buy your product.

Thus it features two ad agents and their struggles, personally and work related. But it isn't some boring workplace rom-com. The charm of the story is the ability of the characters incorporate these principles of marketing/business into their lives. Where they brilliantly create an "image" of themselves and sell themselves to colleagues and bosses further themselves in office politics and also apply it (cleverly) in day to day life. This keeps the story fun and also gives as a smart peek into business school.

The real surprise of the film would be the actors Amber Heard and Shiloh Fernandez. There is great chemistry in these two that kept me glued. Amber was a total surprise and delivered an excellent job.

The scenes were also shot beautifully which is very engaging. pacing and the story telling is good, which keeps you thinking. Plus music was great!

Critics complain for lacking/being too Comedy or Romance or Drama. But i think,we have a film that you would enjoy whatever "image" you want it to be.
