5 films featuring my dream home or apartment  


I was chatting with a friend the other day which reminded me of a game we used to play – which dream film house or apartment did we want to move into?

From an elegantly chic apartment in Mumbai (Sir 2018), Pedro Almodovar’s colourful apartment in (Pain and Glory 2019), the super stylish kitchen of (Ex Machina 2014) and a sundrenched Tuscan villa, Bertolucci’s (Stealing Beauty 1996) to a rooftop garden in the Hong Kong martial arts film (Ip Man 2 2010), here are some of my faves.

What are yours?

QAGOMA is the only Australian art gallery with purpose-built facilities dedicated to film and the moving image. The Australian Cinémathèque at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) provides an ongoing program of film and video that you’re unlikely to see elsewhere, offering a rich and diverse experience of the moving image, showcasing the work of influential filmmakers and international cinema, rare 35mm prints, recent restorations and silent films with live musical accompaniment on the Gallery’s Wurlitzer organ originally installed in Brisbane’s Regent Theatre in November 1929.
