Sound On Sight Radio #177: Lovely Bones / A Single Man

There was a time when New Zealand’s Peter Jackson had to cook up his own special effects in his family’s oven in order to execute his low-budget terrors. Those days are long gone now, thanks to his acclaimed adaptation of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. His latest, an adaptation of Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones, seeks to reconcile his effects-driven recent past with the more down-to-earth work seen in some of his earlier work. We’ll tell you if it worked by reviewing it along with his 1994 breakthrough Heavenly Creatures. Also on the docket: fashion guru Tom Ford makes his debut as a director with A Single Man.

    Heavenly Creatures is one of the best films of that decade. Also I really enjoyed A Single Man. I think Tom Ford shows promise. His visual approach was a tad bit over done but I still liked the look of the film. Not looking forward to the Lovely bones after your review.

    HEAVENLY CREATURES is a great film. I love the scene where the two girls and the mom are walking down the path in the woods. The music was so perfect.
