A lonely Michael Jackson impersonator falls for a beautiful Marilyn Monroe impersonator. The lovestruck duo retreat to a seaside commune in the Scottish highlands filled with impersonators including the Queen of England, Madonna and Sammy Davis Jr.
Director Harmony Korine has been a cult hero of American cinema for two decades now and Mister Lonely, one of his more low-key triumphs, shows his gift for oddball beauty and unique understanding of celebrity and outcasts. A strange, sweet, undiluted vision. Bonus: Herzog and Carax are in it!
Es una de esas películas que empiezan bien y terminan genial. Sin duda una majestuosa forma de escapar de la realidad y vivir una vida de sueño, da la impresión por un momento estar en otra dimensión. Desde risas y alegrías hasta la tristeza y melancolía, algo para ver y reflexionar. Verdaderamente fantástica.
I'm not usually a Harmony Korine fan as I've found a lot of his work relies heavily on trying to shock you to get a point across. "Mr Lonely" is a highly emotive and intelligent film about trying to find your place in the world and the nature of faith. It's subtle,tender, & really make you think. The cast are superb especially Denis Lavant. The scene with Michael Jackson & the painted eggs is too touching for words.
