A good movie

I always had a weak spot for Salma Hayek. I mean, not only she still look gorgeous at almost 50 years old but I always thought that there was something intriguing about this actress. Still, honestly, she usually ends up playing the bimbo in some rather forgettable features and it is not very often that she gets something more substantial to chew on. At some point, she decided to take care of this ... read more

Frida

2 months, 3 weeks ago at Dec 31 2:15
When this project was originally shopped around town in the 1980s, no one in Hollywood knew much about the iconoclast artist Frida Kahlo. It was considered as a prestige project for an actress like Meryl Streep or Jessica Lange, very obvious choices for a proudly Mexican woman who wore the traditional garments of her culture. Thankfully, these versions, including ones that nearly starred Laura San... read more

Description: Hayek plays the Mexican surrealist painter Frida Kahlo, whose tempestuous life with her unfaithful husband, muralist Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina), drives the story of Frida. Maverick director Julie Taymor (Titus, the Broadway stage production of The Lion King) pulls out a wealth of gorgeous visuals to capture everything from the horrific bus accident that damaged Kahlo's spine to her and Rivera's trip to New York City, where Rivera's political leanings ruptured a commission from the Rockefeller family. Though the script spends too much time telling us how great Frida's painting is (rather than trusting in the power of the images ... (more)

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2016 (33 movies items)

" Netflix- 2hrs. 4min. First Viewing Frida is a fun, visually dazzling portrait of the life of Frida Kahlo featuring superb acting, especially Salma Hayek and Alfred Molina. Unfortunately, the story gets more and more drawn out as the movie goes on, leading to a rather muted ending. It's often style over substance, but with style this lovely, why not spend a couple of hours with it? Monthly Wesley AwardBest Score- Elliot Goldenthal"

"Passionate biopic is a labor of love for Salma Hayek that reveals the inner inspirations of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo."

Frida

“When this project was originally shopped around town in the 1980s, no one in Hollywood knew much about the iconoclast artist Frida Kahlo. It was considered as a prestige project for an actress like Meryl Streep or Jessica Lange, very obvious choices for a proudly Mexican woman who wore the traditional garments of her culture. Thankfully, these versions, including ones that nearly starred Laura San Giacomo, Madonna, Marisa Tomei, and Jennifer Lopez, all failed or stalled out in development hell and we were blessed with this passionate, fiery one.   Frida was the dream project of star/producer Salma Hayek, and she spent the better part of her earliest career chasing the various film productions and trying to star in them. Eventually, through sheer determination, pluck, and smart career mo” read more
