Beast of Burden
The 'Il Telefono' segment of Mario Bava's Black Sabbath is a brilliant evocation of the everyday terror of the telephone.
Yeah I hate phone calls. Definitely would prefer an email to a text to a call to a video call (I hate people who want to Skype for a chat).And I just find phone calls awkward most of the time. So much prefer texting, even though it's probably nowhere near as nutritional.
That's what I mean though I think. There are lots of films where they've figured out how to add action, speed, tension with mobiles... but fear... I can't think of so many.I loved the way they used phones in The Matrix. The constant racing to get to them in time, Morpheus directing Neo over the mobile he sends in the post.
Without giving too much about it away, there's a tremendous sequence in Personal Shopper which hinges of Kristen Stewart communicating with someone/something via SMS during a ride to and from London through the chunnel. Didn't expect to see iMessage grey balloon with dots that pops up whilst the other person is typing utilised as a fearful image, much less for it to work (but maybe that's personal anxieties being reflected again...)That's what I mean though I think.

my mate commented that 90 percent of this movie isn't about the monster, one of the many reasons to love it. the first thing that threw me was the dubbed in sheep noises; sounded to me like it was voice actor layback. love to know the context of that creative decision, or perhaps it really was actual sheep lol anyways. it's disconcerting from the outset, and comes across unintentionally so. some great locations, love the massive rubbish heap scene.That rings a bell, tell me more about it...
