And We’re Back – With A ‘Chloe’ Movie To Start With

Chloe: I try to find something to love in everybody. Even if it's a small thing. Something about the way someone smiles. There's always something, there has to be. I try to make myself generous. I do things I don't want to do. I... I think about what not to criticize. And the strangest things come back to me.
Catherine Stewart: Like?
Chloe: You.
Catherine Stewart: Me?
Chloe: Yeah. Yeah people like you walk into my life.

It has been five long months since we have never gotten to blog. A lot has happened and most were good, fortunately. We have transferred to a new home. Pio is back in school. Dori just recently grew older for another year. I am about to grow older this November. We have started our first international travel just recently in Macau and HongKong. And we have a new look for our blog.

Two nights ago we saw a film which we never thought is an erotic thriller – ‘Chloe’. This is the good and bad part of not reading plots before watching the flick. It was a perfect pre-Halloween movie treat for us after getting tired of the usual scares of monsters and robots and sci-fi and screams. Here we have a dissonant drama that would make anyone feel utterly real. ‘Chloe’ is a very intense film that we would not recommend it watching to get some sleep. For it will surely not put you to sleep at all – the film is strong enough to move you and make you think for the rest of the night.

Even if it tells the story of a middle aged woman who is experiencing great midlife crisis, what holds the most weight for the film would be the moving relationship that transpires between the roles of Catherine and Chloe played by Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried respectively. As the affiliation takes many forms and with the warming up of their characters with their every business arrangement, you would start detecting the truth behind the lies being chameleoned in the film.

‘Chloe’ is more than just a story of a woman who hires a prostitute to test the fidelity of her husband and ending up with a more twisted trap that the wife finds herself in. It is about knowing one’s self through another person and ending up with the decision of whether or not you would like that person you would turn out to be. One thing is for sure: we would look forward to another film yet to be released where Moore will star with Annette Bening playing as a lesbian couple in ‘The Kids Are All Right’. As for Seyfried, you would be amazed that she is capable of delivering a more intense and impressive performance than just settling for a cheesy ‘Dear John’ film.
