~CHASING RUSSELL BRAND/GET HIM TO THE GREEK
if you are chasing TILDA SWINTON – forget about ‘I AM LOVE’ – how does a movie that starts off so good – turn so bad ? and I mean really bad. the opening shots and esp the black and white location photography is wonderful, and so are the titles, as in “SAN REMO”, which stretch from one end of the screen to the other in large black block letters . . . but that’s about it, it just gets too bad to even consider. the one interesting (art world) note – the inlaid marble ??!! ground of the big pedestrian square in San Remo – seems to have been the uncredited inspiration for MARTIN CREED’S marble floor installation at Gavin Brown’s ??
. . . but chasing the snake-hipped RUSSELL BRAND in ‘GET HIM TO THE GREEK’ – now, that paid off !! uncertain whether my big-time crush on all things Russell Brand was universal, I asked my colleague, film maven JAN ALBERT for her take. Jan’s reply:
“oh yes, I really enjoyed it – the music video parody – African Child – was one of the funniest things I’ve seen in recent memory.’ !!
