|The Dreamers (2003)|
I've been checking out some of his earlier work, including Bertolucci's The Dreamers from 2003 (luckily haven't gone back to Dawson's Creek yet!). And though his acting has certainly improved since 2003 his performance in the film is still pretty solid, and overall it's a great looking enjoyable film-though kinky as you would expect from Bertolucci (Eva Green has nice breasts, I like those big pink nipples!), but more important and interesting to me it's a movie about people obsessed with movies. Charles Trenet's "La Mer" is used prominently in the film which reminded me of its use in Henry Jaglom's A Safe Place. I assembled a soundtrack for A Safe Place in a blog post several years back. And as these soundtracks seem to be the most popular posts at this site, here's a link to that one from the archives for all you cinephiles.
