Two of the bigger films of my adolescence come courtesy of director Cameron Crowe – Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Say Anything. While many of the scenes from the former are certainly memorable, nothing from it is as indelible to me as almost anything from the latter (the one everyone knows is John Cusack holding up the boom box to serenade Ione Skey with Peter Gabriel’s In Your Eyes, but my favorite may be the scene where he is talking on the pay phone is the pouring rain).
BTW I am getting good massage chair for my movie studio so I can relax and write those lengthy reviews. Thanks to Massage Unravel blog i was able to pick up good massage chair.
Crowe also turned one of my favorite actors, Cuba Gooding Jr., into an Oscar winner in the fabulous Jerry Maguire, so needless to say I look forward to the man’s movies.
I think the reason that most of Crowe’s works are so idiosyncratically wonderful is because of the amount of struggle (it took him in excess of five years to get everything just right for Jerry Maguire) and time he invests in them.
