I watched ‘New York Waiting’ today, a movie released in 2006 and utterly unheard of. I actually heard about it from my friend who then gave me a copy of it and recommended I watch it alongside ‘Lost in Translation’ and’ Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’.
And I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was a pleasant watch and featured NYC, probably one of the most romantic places in the world (in my opinion) though some would argue Paris takes first spot.
It features a good plot, unlike your typical romance movie and contained no sex and nudity, a refreshing change from, again, typical romance movies.
What I liked about it though wasn’t the story or the acting. It was the soundtrack. Yes, it was kind of overt and loud in some places but it tastefully put together and I must find the tracks straightaway.
In other news, I rode a motorcycle and actually DIDN’T crash and burn myself into a corpse so you know, SUCCESS.
1. Good movie must have a good soundtrack. Yes it must.
2. There’s a lot to say for a movie that accepts that true love doesn’t happen on first sight and keeps within those accepted limitations instead for trying to blast it away with over-the-top plot lines that feels fake and overly dramatic.
3. There’s also a lot to say for movies that doesn’t shove lust-at-first in the watcher’s face. Kudos to the director of ‘New York Waiting’.
