365 Movies for 2011 Challenge-Movie #54: The Virgin Suicides (1999) Rating: 5/5
Enjoying my current Sofia Coppola kick immensely. I really loved this movie, it’s so eerie and surreal throughout while at the same time being visually stunning. It also seemed really accurate to the era, even in the colors used. Visually it’s almost like an old home movie, like a retro, tragic, American fairytale of sorts. It inspired me to go read the book after and from what I’ve read thus far I can say that the film really was pretty true to the source. I will definitely be watching it again, soon, and even after one viewing I kind of consider it as a favorite.
As for this poster/graphic, I wanted it to be a bit minimalistic and almost made it just her eye but then I thought better of it and wound up with this.
