      Should be out of the package: Chasing Amy

      I also watched a DVD of the 90s movie-Chasing Amy. I remember that Park Boy has mentioned this film several times in the Principality and MTO. I hadn't read it that year. At that time, I probably didn't even know who Ben Affleck was? It’s not easy for me to pay for a movie with a small business, no cards, and difficult to categorize English titles. However, if I knew that the movie was translated as the fascinating "Guess. Love. Seek" when it was released in Hong Kong, I would probably...

      Not Just Heterosexuality——About the American film "Guess Love"

      It's not just heterosexuality-about the American movie "Guess and Seek" (aka "Love, Addicted") Are you happy? Or: Are you gay? The American film "Guess the Love" starring Ben Affleck, the male protagonist of "Pearl Harbor", is a love story between a man and a woman, but because the woman was once a homosexual, this film was classified In the unit of gay movies, in fact, different people can see different storylines from different angles. You can say that this movie is about heterosexuality,...

      This love can be a remembrance


      Twenty years ago, a black and white movie [Crazy Clerk] that cost only over 27,000 US dollars, made a big splash at the Sundance Film Festival. The film’s director Kevin Smith even completed it by Convenience Store. The dreamy transformation of a wage earner to an independent film rookie king. In the following year, Smith offered a larger scale and sharper viewpoint. Although the film’s bleak box office failed to feed the publisher Universal Pictures’ purse, Kevin Smith’s...

      The story of "Guess·Love·Find"

        "Guess·Love·Find" "chasing amy" is Kevin Smith's third movie. After experiencing completely different encounters in the first two movies ("Crazy Clerk" and "Cool Clan"), this time my mentality suddenly changed. The story and theme of "Guess·Love·Find" are not complicated, and the eternity of love and the sincere attitude make it easy for the audience to resonate and think together.

        Kevin Smith’s inspiration for creating this film came from his real-life relationship with...

      The structure like the crazy clerk is so fun!

      First, 4.5 points and I will spoil the two movies in one go (warning)

      The straight man and les in front are okay. Although there is a new idea, it feels like it is acceptable. Just so so, the male protagonist sees the girl he likes and kisses the other girl and talks about himself before talking about himself. It’s really hurtful and funny to go through that period like that

      Others are sparse discussions on the mentality of falling in love with La and why La likes straight men...

      It's an in-depth discussion of love and lovers. If the heroine's voice was a little more comfortable, I would probably give it five stars. The director made a cameo appearance in the film and said the most important monologue, how we should treat our lover and our lover's past is actually an attitude towards our own...

      Chat. The director's tone of "I don't discriminate against heterosexuals" should be considered avant-garde at that time, right? The main reason is that the image of Xiaoben, a straight man, is set too much, and the audience is easily taken away. If it weren't for the fact that the heroine is too ugly, I believe that the so-called mainstream audience can't help but...

    Evaluation action

    "Guess·Love·Search" uses sex as an entry point to observe mixed emotions of the same sex and the opposite sex. This egalitarian perspective and delicate brushwork make the film surpass the level of ordinary romantic comedies and become a well-received work. The film also transformed Kevin Smith from a young and energetic film kid into a mature and romantic playwright (review of "Movie World", "Contemporary Film")     .

    • Holden: Alyssa from last night Alyssa?

      Hooper: How do you begin and end a question with the same word like that? You got skill.

    • Banky Edwards: Catholic school girls. The uniform's what does it for me. I wish I had've went with more Catholic school girls when I was a kid. As it stands, I have no "And then she unzipped her jumper" stories.
