In Baz Luhrmann’s epic adaptation of the classic novel, The Great Gatsby, one thing that stood out was the costume design. From the dazzling jewellery to the beautiful dresses, he outdid himself with his creative imagination and eye for style. Set in the Jazz Age era or the “Roaring Twenties” as they called it back in the day, women wore flapper dresses while men wore tuxedos and dark suits. Fashion played a big part in the cultural scene and that was well presented in the movie. Every piece of detail from the custom designed headpieces to the landscape settings, Luhrmann captured the essence of the 1920’s period and mesmerized the audience with his taste in clothes.

The 37th annual Toronto International Film Festival kicked off with a lot of great films this year, and End of Watch was no exception. At the top of the cast list, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena both deliver dynamic performances in their roles as two LA cops with a brotherly bond. They play off each other so well that it almost felt like they knew each other for a long time.
There is a lot to be observed in Snow White and the Huntsman, a 2012 British/American action, fantasy film based on the fairytale of “Snow White” by the Brothers Grimm. Its dark tone and foreboding narrative pulls the audience to the edge of their seats. Starring Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and Kristen Stewart as Princess Snow White, the movie is a powerful retelling of the classic fairytale and is filled with meaningful dialogue and good cinematography.
