I'm sorry but white ppl must've had the best rose colored glasses in the 60s. Breakfast At Tiffany's is about a salacious ***** that ends up falling in love with a super simp. Story was so wild for me. She out here tricking crazy while teasing this dude, and wow at his situation, got his own sugar momma for his writing. She straight up treating him like he a ho. The movie was good but I just leaned to watching and analyzing it instead of just watching and 100% enjoying. As the story progressed I could see how movies like Pretty Woman and 500 Days of Summer clearly have B@T DNA in them
The movie does have this serenity and calmness about it the way the tone and setting is established. Made it hard for me to believe the city was ever like that but again rose colored glasses
Hepburn and Peppard did their thing, convincing roles. Rooney though
After watching I actually came across an article saying he finally said he regretted that role before he died.

Hell, even Robert Deniro cameo.
But to each his own...
Story wasn't good. This was admitted when he let actors improv unscripted scenes that changed the story and when told by the actors themselves this completely changes the story he says he doesn't care he's all about character development. Now some may think that's cool but it kinda just showed a lack of discipline to me for a director. I love me some good character development and insight but there has to be a balance with the story.
It fell flat for me after I watched but the more I learn about the behind the scenes now the more disappointed I am overall I actually watched it.
Anyway, I'm sure you could google plenty "true" critiques of AH and get a bunch of good ones telling you why it's not that good and not worthy of any award nominations outside of like two cuz of the performances by the actors but hey if you loved it, you loved it. You've seen enough opposing views on NT for you to have some idea why ppl don't like it at all.

I remember when I said he arguably was the best actor in it cuz of his performance and got the stones thrown at me for ppl to praise JLa of all ppl. Bale did his thing but nothing new. Adams was stellar which was great but is also becoming something to expect from her. Cooper climbed that letter to greatness again but I dunno maybe that's cuz he doesn't do it a lot or doesn't have the role in a movie to even do it enough that I was once again impressed by it.Edited by Master Zik - 4/13/14 at 10:30pm
