Have you seen “9 Kisses,” directed by Elaine Constantine? This morning I stumbled across it via the New York Times twitter feed and I was totally caught up!
Each of the nine short videos features a pair of this year’s best actors in an intimate encounter — all of which end (or start!) with a kiss. It’s lovely and fascinating, and I’ll admit that I almost felt like I was intruding.
You know how with many films, you watch and wait for the moment that you know will happen between the two leads, but you just don’t know how? These are those moments!
A few specific observations:
Laura Dern and Steve Carrell were sort of sweet at first, and then all of the sudden I felt like I was five years old and I just wanted to look away. Or zoom way out.
David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall made me giggle.
And Miles Teller and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (seen above) — tell me more! I want to know! Miles, are you her husband? An ex-lover? Ah. Such a cliffhanger.
It’s almost the weekend! We’re gettin’ out of dodge this weekend and heading to Ojai for a little rest and relaxation. I plan on hiking and eating plenty of cheese. :)
