Helen Mirren, 70 anos

Existem diferenças entre fazer filmes norte-americanos e britânicos?

Na verdade não. O figurinista é o mesmo na França, Itália, Alemanha, Austrália. O diretor de fotografia é o mesmo cara.

Review

Ruby (1992)

Any film based on the events surrounding the J.F.K. assassination has to be taken as conjecture but when this film here from director John MacKenzie hit the screens it did so in the long shadow cast by Oliver Stone’s film the previous year that had everyone’s tongue wagging about the many plots surrounding  President Kennedy’s death. 572 more words
