Thursday Movie Picks: Fake Identities
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is about those characters that have to fake it to make it. This week we're talking about fake identities. There's plenty to choose from, so here are three of my favorites.
1) A Knight's Tale - About a poor man who poses as a lord to enter a jousting tournament. This is one of those movies that's on TV quite frequently and if I catch it, I always sit down and watch it. I miss Heath Ledger and he and the rest of the cast are so great in this.
2) A History of Violence - About a family man who has tried to invent a new persona to step away from his violent past. This is one of my favorite Viggo Mortensen performances.
3) Parasite - About a poor family who lie about their credentials to become staff in a rich home. I still think about this movie so much. I very rarely buy films on DVD any more and this is one I bought immediately when it came out. It's so good.
