Minimalism in the movies
Minimalism is an elegant "character" in two of my favorite movies, A Perfect Murder and Gattaca.
In both movies, it's used in wardrobe and scenery to add texture to the film.
In A Perfect Murder, Gwyneth Paltrow's clothing is spectacular array of luxury basics that any fashionista would love to own. But however gorgeous her wardrobe, it takes 2nd place to the incredible scenery of the Upper East Side of New York and the luxury minimalism of their pent house apartment. The opulence of the apartment is a distraction from the "emptiness of the onscreen marriage. It's too styled, too perfect, too for show.
Now the real star
