Some good movies are marked by professional experience. Therefore, some directors prefer to create films whose subject is the creation of other films. We present a list of ten such films.
10. Boogie Nights
Perhaps the most shocking and realistic film that portrayed American pornography industry, “Boogie Nights” tells the story of adult film actor whose career brought him notoriety, which offers both fame and abuse. If they will look at director Paul Thomas Anderson biography, you’ll see the first film is about the life of Dirk Diggler, then after some time expect to have a movie on it Boogie Nights, I think it was one of obesesie about his character.
09. Tropic Thunder
“Tropic Thunder” is the story of three actors (Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr.) who plays in a film about the Vietnam War. It is a comedy packed with action, which managed to go beyond the “Dark Knight” in the U.S. box office. Also, Downey Jr. earned an Oscar nomination. Film covers topics so uncomfortable for Hollywood, which jeopardize their participation at Oscar. In fact it is one of the main topics: the golden statuette rush famous stars, they make people accept roles physically or mentally incapacitated.
A movie that somewhat reminds me of “Julie & Julia” and that’s as it presents the lives of two people in parallel. The story is very interesting, presenting our spiritual experiences of the two main characters that captivate us until the end. Nicolas Cage, of course, is doing great in double or role. I recommended to all who want to see a good drama.
07. A Star is Born
Norman Maine, a famous alcoholic actor in the late career, a young and talented Esther helping to make a name in Hollywood. The two married, but as his wife’s fame grows, Norman drink more and more, end up committing suicide. While grieving, Esther decides to continue his career for the show must go on.
Millennium Actress is a subtle and sophisticated work of animator Satoshi Kon redoubtable director and historical moments that evoke Japanese cinema… “Millennium Actress” is an anime about a documentary filmmaker investigating the life of an older actress. The drawing is done in a film-within-film style that blurs the lines between reality and fiction. It is considered a tribute to Japanese film and animation art.
05. Ed Wood
Ed Wood. Even if he was a director who hadn’t the necessary talent, here a few decades after his death is not forgotten and is brought to the silver screen by Tim Burton. Johnny Depp plays his role well, but most caught my attention Martin Landau, which gives you a feeling that he would be Bela. The film worth seeing!
04. Barton Fink
The film directed by J. Coen takes place in 1941, when writer Barton Fink comes to Hollywood to write the screenplay for a film about wrestling. Unfortunately for him, begins to suffer from a severe writer’s block, lacking inspiration. Jovial neighbor, traveling salesman, trying to help, but the events it away on Barton succeed more than the purpose for which it came.
03. The Artist
The Artist is an original production that pays tribute to the Golden Age of silent film. The story centers on him a megastar of silent films, George Valentine, the decade with the advent of cinema mute because he refuses to adapt and use his voice. Peppy, a young chic gets to be right before the door that George Valentin cinema launched his new film, and when it comes to meeting the public, it collides.
02. Sunset Boulevard
Hollywood, where you’re the biggest star today, and tomorrow you’re only a star erased and forgotten by the public eye. A grand film-noir that changed the way in which Hollywood was presented and revealed by public. Full of intrigue, mystery and drama, “Sunset Boulevard” is as classic as a movie is a documentary showing the world that fame is fleeting. Acting, scenery, atmosphere, direction, everything is at its best.
01. 8 1/2
Make a good movie requires effort and energy. 8 1/2 is the story of a filmmaker who wants to talk about truth, about people who remain in our memories, about loneliness in two, about hope and innocence, about the release. An autobiographical film to be seen after you have already informed by other Fellini films. Some reasons will be always in the spotlight: the human duality, infidelity, desire to have everything to lose nothing in life and to be still worthy. A complex film, a masterpiece.
