'CAROL' - NOT A FILM REVIEW

There is no doubt in my mind that 'Carol' is Oscar material for Cate Blanchett, who shares the screen with the very talented Rooney Mara.



Although the movie is set in 1940s New York City, it was actually filmed in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The production designer Judy Becker should get an Oscar too. The settings, production values and the set dressing is superlative.




However, for a movie buff and car enthusiast like me, it was the cars which really created the (almost) reality of the movie.


Of course Ms. Becker gathered them from collectors, museums and wherever she could, but every scene featuring cars, or a car, are right on the money.

It's this sort of attention to detail which helps to transport the viewer back in time to pre-Eisenhower USA.




The movie itself? The storyline and the performances are powerful, the direction, editing and attention to detail is outstanding.

Did I mention that the cars are great!

  1. Trust it or not this scene from a run of the mill Hollywood film is not all made up. Indeed, as somebody prefer myself who appreciates composing I realize that even the best movies and books composed originate from something the maker of the compositions has seen. The conjurer, the wand, the enchantment circles, they all originate from genuine ceremonies that have been around for quite a long time. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/04/most-like-solomon.html
