And in ten years you'll still be thinking that.
A Single Man is probably the only film I've seen where I've actually forgotten to breathe. It's probably the most aesthetically pleasing film that I’ve ever seen. It's probably the only film I've seen where I’ve actually wanted to be a part of it. Where it has resonated so much with me, that when the film has ended I feel empty. Tom Ford's eye for detail sharp as hell.

Utterly lovely and quietly devastating, rife with palpable loneliness occasionally overtaken by the ache of longing.
it has its poetic moments,but it's concerned more with appearance than depth. Look at the critical stance it takes on 60's American morals, it remains just at the level of discourse, but is never translated visually, because everyone is beautiful,they dress good and life's pretty much a fashion magazine.But one from the 2000's because the style doesn't match what it's supposed to do. 4 words: Where the Truth Lies
A Single Man is so stylistically magnificent that at points it's unbearable. I was crying for 90% of this film. A very well-mad movie. I hope Mr. Ford makes another one.
A Single Man is one of my favorite movie, I was crying for 90% of this film, every aspect of it is just beautiful, I hope Mr. Ford makes another one.
A beautiful portrait of pain, the grieving process, alienation, and solace. Firth gives such a captivating and charismatic performance that draws the viewer in. The cinematography in this film is beautiful, the changes in colors bringing so much emotional resonance to each scene as a whole. Sad, yet enlivening, this is simply a lovely film.
This movie is closer to perfection than anything I've seen in recent years. It's so visually appealing (the saturated colors in things/situations that George considerers beautiful in the bluntness of his daily routine; the sets; the clothes...); with two amazing performances by Firth and Moore plus a great supporting cast; a masterful score; a strong message; and a perfect ending. Would have rated it 6, if I could.
George si trascina avanti nello scorrere del tempo, circondato da oggetti, ricordi, suoni, colori, i quali ci mostreranno la sua anima sensibile e la perduta felicità. La regia di Tom Ford è visuale, tralascia la mera trama e si concentra sul dramma esistenziale perfettamente interpretato da Colin Firth e da una bellissima Julianne Moore. Un film delizioso e sofisticato che offre numerosi spunti per riflettere. ★★★★★
Mientras la cámara rueda por la perfectamente provocativa lente del Señor Ford, el cautivador Colin Firth juega un papel que seduce desde un punto de vista melancólico y fúnebre, que despierta sensaciones palpables y fehacientes de un hombre que colapsa vertiginosamente, pero intenta mediar su día con un poco de entendimiento de si mismo.
I thought the first half of this film was pitch perfect. Full of beauty and meaning. Colin Firth was excellent and moved me deeply. Then the last half seemed to sort of implode upon itself into a simple easy ending. Be looking into any further pictures from mister Ford though I sure.
