New York, I Love You (2009)


this film, hands down, has the best assemble of elite actors i have ever seen. like Paris Je T'aime (2006), these are vignettes of the people living in the love fused air of the big apple. but unlike, je t'aime, the stories integrate and intertwine with each other like the lives of the busy city.

Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, The Namesake, and Amelia), Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men), Natalie Portman, and much much more directs this hugely talented cast including natalie portman, anton yelchin, julie christie, olivia thirlby, shia labeouf, bradley cooper, rachel bilson, and much much more. i honestly was gasping every five minutes from the range of actors that accumulated together to make this beautiful portrait of classic new york.

it was wonderful and very different from that of Paris Je T'aime considering the huge culture difference from both places that is essentially a blueprint for the film. and if i had to choose if i liked paris je t'aime or new york, i love you, i would have to say paris je'taime.eekk! but seriously. i should not even compare because they are completely two different work from completely different people from all over the globe.

and unlike paris, new york is a melting pot of all cultures. and thats what makes new york so much more special than any other place on this glorious and mysterious earth. and in a city that doesnt sleep (maybe vegas too?) the little incidents and moments that people share bring the inner love and makes new york the place to be for love. i love new york and plan to live there someday and possibly, i too will find love.

I am really desiring to see this...and usually things with "love" in the title put me off. :)

hmm i didnt like it---at all. i found the plots to be all unfinished and just off key. trust me, i'm all for leaving shit to the mind, and unhappy endings and all, but it was just a hodgepodge of complete nothingness. the worst had to have been the one of was most looking forward to-natalie portmans.

sorry dont mean to mouth off on your blog, but it was just really disappointing. where the wild things are however- that was fucking lovely.

i'm looking forward to watching this. i wasn't super impressed with paris je t'aime, so hopefully, new york will be different.
