Tom Ford

For 36 days straight, we’ll be exploring the famous 36 Dramatic Situations by examining a film that exemplifies each one. From family killing family to prisoners in need of asylum, we brush off the 19th century list in order to remember that it’s still incredibly relevant today. Whether you’re seeking a degree in Literature, love movies, or just love seeing things explode, our feature should have something for everyone. If it doesn’t, then go buy a suit from Tom Ford’s Fall line to cheer yourself up. Part 12 of the 36-part series takes a look at “All Sacrificed for Passion” with fashion designer Tom Ford’s feature directorial debut A Single Man.


This week’s Culture Warrior looks absolutely fabulous in that suit.


The feature filmmaking debut of fashion designer Tom Ford, A Single Man often resembles a magazine photo spread sprung to life.



Tom Ford is a stylish man who’s been around a lot more naked women than I have. I’d cry foul, but he’s also been around a lot more naked men so instead I’ll just call it even. He’s been near the top of the fashion world for years, but now he looks to be expanding his resume by directing and co-writing a film. A Single Man has already received quite a bit of acclaim from showings at various festivals and has finally had it’s first trailer released. The film stars Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode (Watchmen, The Lookout), Ginnifer Goodwin (“Big Love”, “Ed”), and Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, “Skins”). Check it out below. The trailer doesn’t give away much (or anything really) about the plot, but it looks absolutely stunning doesn’t it? It shouldn’t come as a surprise since Ford’s other career involves his keen eye for fashion and beauty, but he and cinematographer Eduard Grau have at the very least crafted a beautifully-shot film. As far as what the movie’s about… It’s based on the novel by Christopher Isherwood and stars Firth as a British professor living in California who’s trying to move on after the loss of his lover. The film follows him through one day of his life as he deals with his emotions, acquaintances, and past decisions that brought him to this point. As the trailer points out, Firth is already getting some Oscar buzz for his performance, and I’m happy to hear that. […]
