24 Hour Party People

After doing some work in a cafe, I watched a movie with Keiuske and Yuki today.

The movie was called 24 Hour Party People. Apparently it was one of Keisuke's favorites, and we sat down with popcorns and sodas to watch it out.

The movie was based on a true story about this guy named Tony Wilson, a TV news reporter who became the owner of Factory Records label and a club called the Hacienda. He was part of this revolution which altered the way people perceived music throughout the late 70s and the 80s.

It was a really cool movie, I would say funky and energetic since there was a lot of cool music and extra effects (graphic-wise as well as story-wise). Most of the time, I enjoy movies based on the truth because I can catch the story of the movie with a sense of reality and in turn accept the movie in a more sensitive way, and this movie was not an exception.

I should keep watching more movies on a regular basis. It helps me get refreshed and also helps me enhance my sensitivity. I used to think that I had watched a good number of movies, but I have realized that there are so many great movies out there that I have been missing and there are so many ppl who have watched far more movies than me. So if anyone has any recommendations, I would be glad if someone could post something on this blog.
