Film discussion: A Bigger Splash

Bigger Splash

The recipe for an erotic thriller is simple. Take two hypnotically gorgeous people (say Matthias Schoenaerts and Tilda Swinton) and have them play rich people—a rock star and a filmmaker—in a ridiculously attractive setting (say the Mediterranean island of Pantelleria). Then add two outsiders (also gorgeous) including an ex-boyfriend of Swinton’s (Ralph Fiennes) and his daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson (of Fifty Shades of Grey fame).

When I was told that, I knew that I was landing in the right place, as my favorite food of all time, for as long as I can remember, is popcorn. I like crazy flavors, classic microwavable, and movie theater popcorn, I’m even kind of fond of kettle corn. As I write this, I currently have a container of popcorn sitting on my desk.
