In a solitary moment I went to the HMV Curzon in Wimbledon to see Tom Ford's A Single Man.
It was an enjoyable viewing and there is something to be said for making a film after a career change, however I would say there is a very slight soulless feel to the film, which is either due to brilliant acting by Colin Firth and is intentional, or it isn't.
I also felt there were overtones of Wang Kar Wai's In the Mood for Love with the clock and the use of non digetic sound (the musical score) and the fragmented nature of the story telling. But is lovely to see a film that is reminiscent of homage to other directors when those directors are so brilliant. I felt there were overtones of Antonioni too.
It is stylish but it is not a fashion film, although Ford's aesthetics are stamped all over it. It is well worth seeing and both Moore and Firth are such good actors - their casting is act of genius.
