Gravity – Review

24 Jan

I took my time for this review. I know, we have all talked about it, good and bad things flourished about this film, mainly containing our feelings concerning heavy breathing, but in general we just gave it the necessary attention when it was time.

Huston I have control issues and over attaching tendencies.

Huston I have control issues and over attaching tendencies.

I could not stop but wonder, during the fastest 2 hours I can remember watching Gravity, there is no such thing as a normal life.

Nope, not a chance!

Things will happen to us, all the time, some good, some bad, some we will believe aren’t happening to us, but mostly: we will never be fully prepared for what can happen to us.

All we must master in this roller coaster of a life is the ability to improvise, apply common sense and breathe slowly.

Gravity is an intense, fast and incredibly realistic cinematic display of good acting, writing and directing. it does not feel crowded or far-fetched (much like super hero films, and I love them). A film with our beautiful planet in the background, and the only possible place where we can actually physically leave our troubles behind, but we wont because we suck at life (sometimes).

Other than pointing out that despite the advice of “don’t let go” we should do the opposite, I recommend to everyone who haven’t seen it, to go out and just do.

Dallas Buyers Club – Review

22 Jan

I know we’ve all had the experience of not really caring about what is happening on screen but rather paying more attention to whom is it happening… because in a film like Dallas Buyers Club, the characters and the acting were just simply mesmerizing, larger than the movie itself.

Dare to live and dare to give.

Dare to live and dare to give.

The transformation one actor can suffer in a movie is impressive in itself, but once you kind of forget the movie and you concentrate in the person, and the struggle, you see things different and the experience is way more intimate.

This is why I love cinema, the infrastructure as a whole works and delivers amazing things to us, but sometimes only one of those things is necessary to transcend, you don’t miss anything else, or just don’t pay attention to whatever else is happening, because not important.

Mathew and Jared slowly under-dogged  their way up to 2 of the most memorable and intense performances of  last year, part of a movie with a very important but ignored message, as a whole a good film, carried strongly by great acting .

And the lesson we should all get to work on: we might find ourselves in special situations where all of what we believe in will have a new meaning, when us turns to we and our own benefit will be secondary to a greater good… don’t panic if such thing happens, just don’t.

The secret life of Walter Mitty

13 Jan

A kind of film made for the people, not for the critics, or the glory.

A film for the spectator to question life from the inside out.

Is this the real life?, is this just fantasy? caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.

Is this the real life?, is this just fantasy? caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.

The doer Vs the watcher.

Me asleep Vs  Me awake.

I think I have seen all of Ben Stiller’s films, he has this particular way to direct, he wants things natural, to inject a bit of reality without going overboard if I may say, the human touch… it is just that at one point his films lack flavor; yes, flavor was the word, because we can be mesmerized by the characters (the very good acting) or the soundtrack, the story itself might be interesting, but things happen too easily…

Do not get me wrong, I am the people, the film was for me, took me for a ride, made  me question my own reality, I felt sad and happy, my kind of adventure, after watching it I am sure this film goes to my collection!

I just think Stiller needs to risk more, he has it in him, it is a great step forward to become one of those legendary directors.

I recommend it, people on their middle-age crisis should probably skip it… it is too late for you 🙂

Nah… forget it it is never too late to start living!

Flight sponsored by that adventurous person you once met but quickly ignored. YOU!

Before Sunrise

This opportunity wont pas us by.

These opportunities wont pass us by.

Captain: Richard Linklater

CrewEthan HawkeJulie Delpy

Destination: Somewhere between where you are now and where you want to be.

Flight conditions: Calm, relaxed, smooth… really sad!

Your seat: First come, first served.

Black box recordings: There was actually not a lot of time to figure out what they were going trough the moment of the crash, we just could hear two people talking about trivial things making them sound as if they really mattered.
