Ladies Rolex Datejust Watch
Most of you know that I actively notice the watches worn in movies and television shows. Rarely do the watches features on the wrists of characters add anything to message of the movie, as they are just part of the wardrobe. I recently saw the movie adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis' book, and I have a few things to say about the watches of the film. First, let me say that Bret Easton Ellis is an author I highly respect and enjoy reading. For me, is novel American Psycho is a complex and highly stimulating, almost satirical piece of social commentary. I honestly consider it an American literary masterpiece despite the four unreadable chapters (on music) and some scenes so gruesome even I skimmed over them. Other books of his share the same type of demented Ellis created archetypes, that inhabit a perversely romanticized 1980s (most in LA or New York). Thus, the stories set the comic book- like characters in the era of unappreciated excess, effortless consumption, and optimistic disregard - with Easton's incredible attention to each item of clothing that the characters are wearing (you'll know what I mean if you've read his stuff). Ellis has the most incredible talent for literally placing you in the scene, even hearing the characters speak in your mind. While The Informers is not one of his novels that I have read, I can comment on how Rolex played a role in the movie.
