A Single Man makes a great debut!

For the second year in a row, there has been an Oscar film about a leading middle-aged homosexual who struggles personally with life (other being Milk). I really like the fact that they cast heterosexual actors and actresses to portray homosexuals because straight people demonstrate that there is just nothing wrong with it hence why pretty much all heterosexual actors get Oscar nominations and win... read more

Since I kept hearing some good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, Colin Firth would have to wait a year to finally win the Academy award for the Best Actor for 'The King's speech' but he was already nomminated a year before for this movie and, to be honest,, I thought he was here actually even better here. Seriously, in my opinion, the guy easily gave here the... read more

What a fantastic and absolutely beautiful movie. I have no fucking clue why I didn’t watch it sooner. A masterpiece. Everything, from the cinematography, music, action, to the characters is so artfully and beautifully done.

I liked the steadiness and the ruggedness it had in the scenes, I loved how when Colin Firth felt many feelings everything brightened up and looked beautiful a... read more

A SINGLE MAN is based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood. Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, it is the story of a British college professor (Colin Firth) who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner. The story is a romantic tale of love interrupted, the isolation that is an inherent part of the human condition, and ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.

" Colin Firth delivers an Oscar-nominated performance as an English professor in the grips of depression after losing his partner of 16 years in this adaptation of the Christopher Isherwood novel. While many LGBT classics centre around coming-of-age stories, Tom Ford’s directorial debut takes a thought-provoking look at long term LGBT relationships and living with loss in middle age."

A Single Man (Review)

“ "Oh, I'm fine,I'm English, We Like to be cold & wet    - George Falconer 

  - In English : 

 A film adapted from a novel by (Christopher Isherwood) of the same title, published in (1964) which talks about a gay professor , is a good film in terms of soundtrack and many of the scenes that show the main character Professor (George Falconer) focus on The details surrounding him like fragrances, beautiful hairstyles, beautiful visual and a very high performance by (Colin Firth) who mastered the role, and also (the soundtrack) is more than wonderful and very expressive and very appropriate especially with atmosphere surrounding.

A Single Man

“Christopher Isherwood’s slim novel is an emotionally engaging, powerful, and heartbreaking examination of a man consumed by grief and loss trying desperately to find a tether to the rest of the world. Tom Ford’s directorial debut follows it, at times to the letter and at others with necessary embellishments, and visualizes it in a way that is vibrant and engrossing in its excesses. A Single Man is a knockout by any measure.   Much like the novel, we are placed firmly within George’s perspective, a gay English expatriate professor at a local college who is contemplating suicide after the death of his lover of sixteen years. He has no family to speak of, was blocked from attending his lover’s funeral, and his lone friend is fellow Brit Charley, who drinks too much, smokes just as ” read more

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

" DVD- 1hr. 40min. First Viewing At times a bit too slow and obtuse, but ultimately a rewarding portrait of a restrained man attempting to overcome a personal loss. While the film is visually sublime and the story inherently intriguing, the film lives and dies by Firth's performance, and he turns in one of his finest.
