Tim Burton’s Joker was a visionary. He once said: So much to do and so little time. We now feel so rushed that we end up consuming everything without taking a minute to appreciate anything. On to the next! When it comes to movies, it has become difficult to explain why we love or hate a film with more than two words.
If only we were questioning what we see, we would not miss its meaning and learn to appreciate the beauty of nuances. We could perhaps make connections with what’s going on in the world. We would realize that cinema is the new mythology.
If only we were questioning what we see, we would be less exposed to pretentious predators desperately trying to impress us in a good old fashion way.
Good evening. I only can see you tonight. You’re a star! Is your name Solaris? Have you heard of Tarkovsky?
To this man you can now politely answer:
Dude. I’ve seen Soderbergh’s Solaris. And I can tell you I like independent men. I don’t wanna be anyone’s star especially if that should lead to suicide. Do you like suicide? That’s too much drama for me. So if I may quote Fergie: ‘Shut up. Just shut up. Shut up.’ Also, I really don’t like bow ties. Have a good night.
Nice and easy.
It’s always interesting to discuss movies. Any opinions is valuable as long as it is well articulated. To join the debate you need to question and argue. For that, ask yourself questions. Listen to your emotions and put words on them. The magic will happen. It doesn’t need to sound pompous.
