Thursday Movie Picks - Retro Chic
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is retro-chic! Films set in modern times, but the styles of clothing and what not look like they could've been from an earlier decade. I love this idea. Here's what I came up with
1) God Help The Girl - This lovely little musical looks like it could be set in the 60's. In fact, I assumed it was until Emily Browning's character brought out her smart phone.
2) Magic Magic - Another Emily Browning film, I remember thinking the clothing in this film looked very dated, but in retrospect they were a bit ahead of the curve. There was lots of chunky sweaters and turtlenecks in this that I felt like just didn't fit with what the trends were at the time. Now, I wouldn't bat an eyelash.
3) It Follows - One of the cool things about this movie was you couldn't really tell what decade it was meant to be in. All the set pieces feel like an 80's movie, but people are driving modern cars. Jay has that little shell phone/e-reader thing. I loved how ambiguous it was, but it felt older.
