Back To The Future, and its star Michael J Fox, would have to be one of the most iconic moments in 80s history. Killer movie, full of that naive optimistic escapism that characterised the 80s generation. These behind the scenes photos that ran on the Lime Is Better blog reveal some of the tricks behind the direction and set design, which seemed so futuristic at the time.
Ever watched a movie and enjoyed it so much that you wanted to live in it? Well, you’re not the only one because Amy Merrick feels the same way about films. She teamed up with Design Sponge to bring Living In; where every Tuesday she lists a movie that she want’s to live in: giving examples of different home decor, clothing, and food similar to that shown in the movie. From Labyrinth, Amelie, and even Butch Cassidy and the Sunset Kid, she covers a wide range of films, so you’re sure to find one that matches your fantasy.
Films involving characters faced with an impossible choice never make easy viewing, an example being the Nick Cave Australian gem, The Proposition. A nightclub manager, played with understated power by Joaquin Phoenix, is the victim here, and you actually feel truly uncomfortable as his predicament unfolds. Set in the 1980s, We Own The Night shows a real nostalgia for that period — particularly in the costumes.
