Jake Gyllenhaal is just like you and me taking the subway to get to where we have to go. I guess it’s just a matter of time before I eventually see him on my commute. Or who knows I might have already been on the train with him at some point and didn’t even know - us New Yorkers be minding our own damn business.

Two of the most emotionally devastating shots from two of 2019’s best films. The storytelling , the performances particularly from Adam Driver and Joe Pesci, the mastery behind the camera, it’s all there and all perfect. Both of these films are on Netflix right now, and if you haven’t seen them yet, I can’t recommend them any higher and would easily give them both an A+. #marriagestory#theirishman

Léon: The Professional (1994) According to Jean Reno, he decided to play Léon as if he were "a little mentally slow" and emotionally repressed. He felt that this would make audiences relax and realize that he wasn't someone who would take advantage of a vulnerable young girl. Reno claims that for Léon, the possibility of a physical relationship with Mathilda is not even conceivable, and as such, during the scenes when such a relationship is discussed, Reno very much allowed Portman to be emotionally in control of the scenes. . . . . . . . . . . #leontheprofessional#natalieportman#cinephile#instamovies#instafilm#cinephilecommunity#goodmovie
