A very good movie

I'n a huge fan of Neil Jordan but, honestly, it has been a while since he really blew me away with one of this movies. However, I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by this flick. Basically, it is one of those movies where a man and a woman are stuck together against their will but, eventually, they get fond of each other. The difference here is that the characters are so well written and played... read more

Mona Lisa is a pretty solid example of a great film that gets slightly derailed by an ending that feels entirely at odds with everything that has happened before it. Here is a film about two people who bicker, argue, team-up to rescue a lost soul, encounter dangerous people at every turn, and yet it still manages to end on a note of happiness. This feels wrong.

Mona Lisa

“Mona Lisa is a pretty solid example of a great film that gets slightly derailed by an ending that feels entirely at odds with everything that has happened before it. Here is a film about two people who bicker, argue, team-up to rescue a lost soul, encounter dangerous people at every turn, and yet it still manages to end on a note of happiness. This feels wrong.

Other than this one problem, all of the necessary components are running at their highest capacity to make a great film. The film’s script smartly reveals its many twists and turns through small hints and slowly evolving relationship dynamics between the two main characters. Neil Jordan and David Leland’s dialog is also a thing of beauty, taking the British gangster vernacular and twisting it around into a street-tough” read more

My Favorite 199 Films From The 80's, y'all. (199 movies items)

"Back in the first year of the 80's decade, Bob Hoskins did an excellent job playing a high-level mob boss in the British crime drama The Long Good Friday. Six years later, in Mona Lisa, he does an even more excellent job in the role of a low-level mob underling. Recently released from prison, George (Hoskins) is assigned by his mob boss to chauffeur the outrageous beautiful and even more outrageously expensive lady of the night, Simone. And thus begins a relationship that will evolve into a f"

“I'n a huge fan of Neil Jordan but, honestly, it has been a while since he really blew me away with one of this movies. However, I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by this flick. Basically, it is one of those movies where a man and a woman are stuck together against their will but, eventually, they get fond of each other. The difference here is that the characters are so well written and played, it was quite fascinating to watch. Furthermore, I really enjoyed the directing providing precisely the right amount of humor, drama, romance and suspense. Of course, the fact that Michael Caine has a small part doesn't hurt. Once again, Mr Caine shines here and gives an amazing performance. To conclude, I thought it was a simple tale but very well told and just plain fascinating. Definitely wort” read more
