The Virgin Suicides is a movie that didn’t have a huge impact on me then and now I can appreciate it for its direction and the performances, but nothing else otherwise in terms of any emotional impact.
The Criterion Collection has announced the date and released artwork for a variety of great titles for April including The Virgin Diaries, Dead Man and The Awful Truth amongst others. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
As a fan of Sofia Coppola, I was disappointed with The Beguiled, a film with paper-thin characters and a rather dull and trite plot that leads to an ineffectual finale. That said, I will give it some points for Farrell and Kidman’s performances and what production design I could see was well done.
