What If

Monday, 29 December 2014

I have something serious to tell you. Are you sitting down? OK. Here goes nothing... I'm obsessed with this movie.

Felt good to get that off my chest.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan, What If (without a '?' which I'll admit annoys me a little) is the story of a girl-guy friendship challenged by the age old question - can men and women really just be friends?

Three favourite quotes:
"You don't realise how quickly everything can fall apart until it does, makes you never want to give up anything good again."
"I just had sex and I'm about to eat nachos, this is the greatest moment of my life!"
"It's complicated. All this love shit's complicated. Because if it's too simple you've got no reason to try. And if you've got no reason to try, you don't."

As the two main protagonists - Wallace (Radcliffe) and Chantry (Kazan)  - navigate their way through a friendship filled with lust and longing, trying desperately to come to a conclusion that doesn't ruin both their lives, the movie throws up some of the sweetest, some of the funniest, and some of the most heart wrenchingly real scenes since (500) Days of Summer. In short, it makes me do a happy cry, I've watched it three times since Saturday, and you're going to love it.

“Be careful, you are not in Wonderland. I’ve heard the strange madness long growing in your soul. But you are fortunate in your ignorance, in your isolation. You who have suffered, find where love hides. Give, share, lose—lest we die, unbloomed.” - Kill Your Darlings

"When one makes a gesture, one stops breathing, one cuts the respiratory system off, the lungs and everything connected are blocked. I have often tried with my granddaughter who is twelve years old. I give her an instrument and tell her to draw me a straight line – and she bites her tongue to do it! So, I think that it’s hard-wired with human beings that when one writes one stops breathing entirely. When one goes back to the inkwell – it also gives time to take in some more oxygen for the body." - Hassan Massoudy

"You are a fine piece of china, he treated you like a paper plane." - Some (very insightful yet possibly a bit intoxicated) girl on the tube. I found this hilarious... Obviously.

A small truth: I'm hopelessly fascinated by everything Karl Lagerfeld, and (almost) everything Cara Delevingne. Whenever something new crops up about either of them, I'm all over it. Karl got a cat? I've stared at pictures of her. Karl's cat got a fashion line and a book deal? Well obviously, what took so long? Cara did a line for Mulberry? WHY DON'T I HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO ENCOURAGE THIS ENDEAVOUR? etc. And so, naturally, when I read that Karl's latest fashion film would star Delevingne herself, I was intrigued. So intrigued that I memorised the release date... Stop judging me.


'Reincarnation' aired online today, and I wasn't disappointed. I love everything about this short film - from the outfits, to the singing, to the bad lip syncing and even worse (by which I mean awesome, because who doesn't love to pull out the dad moves every once in a while?) dancing.

I suggest you give up 7 minutes 47 seconds to watch. 'CC The World' might just be your new favourite song.

More to watch online: Missing Something - a very funny web series about 20 something London. And Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud.
