winter withered, warm
Have you seen Three Colors: Blue? Another impressive use of that kind of brief interlude. Much more dramatic in that case though, from what I remember.
Punch Drunk Love stuck with me, but a fellow kid in one of my classes pointed out that all Sandler needed to do was deviate from his usual performance and he would be lauded. A bit overstated, but not by much. Not to dismiss his performances in Punch Drunk Love or in Uncut Gems, both of which I respected - but there is some truth to that, no?
Also PTA is from, and sets some of his films in, the San Fernando Valley, porn capital of the states, where I was born and raised.
As I remember it, there are ten films which don't have any continuous story line or suchlike and which could be watched on their own. However, as you say, with Kieslowski there are often things that maybe aren't obvious and crucial to the main story lines but which you may notice if you've seen all the films and which might give you something extra. I think that the films do have something of the same feel to them or the same headspace or something that links them, so even if one may be a comedy (I think there is only one of them that could be considered outright in that manner) and another might be a tragedy or a love story or whatever, they do feel as though they are connected by more than being made by the same director and both being named after one of the ten commandments. So I would say that you don't NEED to watch them together and back to back, but I would advise anyone watching them that they might find it slightly more rewarding overall if they did. Not too much of a problem though cos I think they normally sell them as a box-set type thing of two or three dvds (if that's how you intend to consume them).Still haven't seen Dekalog, much to my dismay. Can they be appreciated individually, or would you recommend watching them in series? Do the narratives overlap, as in Three Colors?
Yeah, Wurlitzer I believe wrote the screenplay for Two Lane Blacktop - not sure if there was a book before that. And I still haven't seen The Shooting. Seems like much of this would fall into the lower-profile Easy Rider Raging Bull movement.So you're tipping a book called Slow Fade which was written by the same author as Two Lane Blacktop right?
Tom Cruise will film his next Hollywood blockbuster on location — 250 miles up in the air and orbiting the Earth once every 90 minutes.
The "Top Gun" star will be flying through the stratosphere shooting an as-yet-unknown film aboard the International Space Station (ISS), NASA said Tuesday.
