21- A Single Man [9.0]
A story that centers on an English professor who, after the sudden death of his partner tries to go about his typical day in Los Angeles.
For his directorial debut, fashion designer Tom Ford employs a divisive visual aesthetic that I found to be gorgeous. The desaturated photography looks not unlike that which you’d find in a highly stylized fashion advertisement. Colin Firth really pulls you into George’s depression. This was the performance he should have won an Oscar for. If you’re ever lost a lover, beware: A Single Man might feel all too real.
