I give this movie a 8 out of 10
“A Tumor? That doesn’t make any sense though. I mean… I don’t smoke, I don’t drink… I recycle…”
50/50 is a movie starred by Joseph Gordon-Lewitt, he plays Adam, a 27 year old writer of radio programs who is diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer. With the help of his best friend, his mother, and a young therapist at the cancer center, Adam learns what and who the most important things in his life are. The movie is based on a true story, and you can see how the movie focuses more on the character’s perspective, rather than the usual drama and relationships most movies center around. I do recommend it.
From 1 to 10 I give it an 8.5
The Skin I Live In is an Almodóvar movie, and features brilliant actor Antonio Banderas and beautiful Elena Anaya. So as in most of his films, the plot is hard to explain in few sentences, this movie became more complex as it evolved, in his fashioned non-linear narrative.
The movie tells the story of Dr. Robert Ledgard, a brilliant surgeon whose wife pased away due a terrible car accident. Haunted by his past tragedies he creates a new perfect skin, strong enough to survive any kind of damage. In the middle of his obsession he kidnaps his experiment guinea pig, a beautiful woman called Vera, who has to learn to live on a “different skin.”
