User Reviews: I am big into movies and I love foreign movies and before "Imagine I’m Beautiful" I watched a movie from Argentina, where the central character goes psycho, murderous and complete bananas, and as much as I preach into loving foreign movies,that one was a completed disappointment.
But why I am talking about that when "Imagine I’m beautiful" is centered in New York?
Well both movies go into the human psych, fears, anguishes, and while one gets bloody and weird, the one I am reviewing left me wanting more and thinking for several minutes after the final credit faded away…
What if instead of imposing our fears and despairs unto others, we do the best to change their lives and awkwardly try to make them happy?
Would the world turn for the worse?, no I don’t think so, we would be just a bunch of "cuckoos" prancing smiles around and refusing to settle down with reality, bitterness and else.
I don’t know if this movie will appeal to everyone but I’d really like to gather some friends around and make this movie the subject of analysis. I identified with this movie because people who know me cannot comprehend why I always smile at the world, even though when implies a little sacrifice of the soul.
As I said before this movie will appeal to those who see the world and the rest of the people in more colors than black and white.
To the producers and actors and everyone involved in the making of this movie: thank you for this soul searching statement about the elusiveness of happiness.
