I’ve got some pretty nice recommendations to share.
What started like a simple post, ended up taking a lot of hours of research and boy band video-watching. I may or not regret it.
There were boy bands I hadn’t even heard of… and some that I had to dust off my VHS tapes to get their names. Ha!
Maybe I am the only person in the world who saw actress Bérénice Marlohe on Skyfall and thought of Meisa Kuroki. Am I? Is it crazy? Not… maybe? A little? Come on, they do look alike, right?
Both mixed-race — apparently Marlohe is part Chinese/Cambodian/French, while Kuroki is Japanese (possibly Okinawan???)/Brazilian — thought early web talk stated her dad was part Panamanian instead. So there you go, the internet. And they’re like 10 years apart from each other.
I don’t think neither of them are stellar actresses — but somehow, I’m still rooting for Meisa Kuroki to pull through after the 2012 that she’s gone through, LOL. Now that is crazier than thinking these two look alike. xD
After some flame from their compilation of 135 Shots That Will Restore Your Faith in Cinema , Flavorwire is back with a new compilation~~~ this time around focusing on faces, their emotions and their beauty… to relative success. I don’t think I could fault them… I had enough with Wong Kar Wai (included multiple times), multiple Zhang Yimou shots (and a double appearance of Gong Li to boot!), there was Park Chan Wook, Guillermo del Toro, Leslie Cheung’s face.
It was a thing of beauty.
The only face I could possibly suggest would have been Greta Garbo’s last shot on Queen Christina, but I’m content.
