I watched Magic in the Moonlight on DVD for the first time last night and everything about the film really hit the spot. The entire offering went down light and airy-like and I found myself appreciatively smiling throughout. The three glasses of red wine I drank made the entire time all the more enjoyable but did not in any way deceive me into thinking I was watching a great film; I stand by my original review. However, the film's pacing is better suited to a home viewing setting and I found myself wanting to immediately watch the movie again. I had that "blue" feeling after the movie ended and did not want it to end. I get this feeling a lot after films and TV shows that I particularly enjoy.
"‘Irrational Man‘ is also a philosophical book by William Barrett. Credited with introducing existentialism to the English speaking world, it ties into both the reported serious tone, and the theme of philosophy in the film."
But wait! The Woodman Speaketh:
"Sony Classics and I have a good working relationship. I like the way they handle my movies, very special, very classy and I always hope my films live up to their expectations."
