I love you Phillip Morris (2009)

I_Love_You_Phillip_Morris

Even if sometimes I don’t know who you are, I love you.

This movie was not the biggest hit, but I personally was a big fan. It’s the most ridiculous story to the point where I googled it for around an hour before actually believing it was in fact – a true story. NEVER had I¬†been so surprised by a moment in a film, I had the ‘holy shit!’ expression on my face for a good ten minutes. Also, this film is just hilarious. Jim Carrey plays the main character, and his over the top performance is necessary and vital to the energy of this film. However, this is one of the few times Carrey’s performance doesn’t feel forced but simply natural to the character – equally crazy I would say. Carrey is the highlight of this film, and despite it comedic drive there is a ¬†genuine true love that even romantic films often lack to portray with such power. Then the other main character is played by one of my favourites, Ewan McGregor, so not much could go wrong for me. It is so entertaining, extremely high energy and yet completely unique in it’s characters, story and style making it unforgettable.
