Why Do I Love Movies That Other People Hate?

I’ve noticed, while watching and reviewing films over the past few years, that I tend to take a liking and/or appreciation to films that the people around me hate. Usually these are small indie pictures, but they can be any kind of films. I’m not trying to say that I love movies like Plan 9 From Outer Space or anything; the films I enjoy aren’t universally disliked, there are people out there who liked them as much as me, but they are few and far between and rare in the general population.

To illustrate this point I am going to present to you a few films that I love that I’ve been hard pressed to find others who’ve shared my opinions:

The Brown Bunny (2003)

Let’s start off with the one that’s caused the most controversy, and the one that seems to be more hated than most of the others. With his breakthrough hilarious comedy Buffalo 66 in 1998, Gallo proved he had indie filmmaking talent, his film garnering mostly positive critical reception. However, his follow-up (if you could call it that) in 2003 caused outrage at Cannes. And odds are, you probably already know why.

The Brown Bunny has an incredibly simple plot: Gallo’s character drives across country, motorcycle in tow, to reunite with his girlfriend and close some dry, open emotional wounds. That’s it. The film was originally 118 minutes long. While I certainly agree that the now cut 90 minute version is long enough, you can imagine a film longer by half an hour where the only scenes that were cut out were of Gallo driving. Make no mistake, there is a lot of driving involved but it is in no way excessive or boring, to me anyway. Gallo’s expression while driving is a mixture of calm and exhaustion, and even when he’s sitting there, doing nothing, he’s acting. And in this film, at least, he’s a bloody good actor. I’m not going to launch into a review here, because I’ve already written one, but suffice it to say, it’s a long-seeming movie with a shocking final thirty minutes that will leave you reeling.

It is one of those movies that looked (to me) completely, wholly different the second time round. And I can’t tell you why without spoiling the twist (which in itself, is not all that original but just the way Gallo shot it and revealed it was stunning). But let’s see if I can try to examine why it’s so hated, and why I like it.

Well, the former is obvious. With long stretches of driving, little dialogue, annoyingly long shots, deathly quiet voices, some shaky Dogme-95 style camerawork, and an explicit, unsimulated sex scene, for most people looking for an accessible, enjoyable movie, you will be very disappointed.

But as a character study, the film works. And it’s the amazing way Gallo treats his characters that saves the film. He writes all the heart and emotion he can muster into his main character, and makes sure it can shine through.

The tone of the film completely changes in its last five minutes, which sadly, is after most people will have walked out or turned it off. The blowjob scene is subtly aggressive, and not erotic whatsoever, and a precursor for the revelation that’s to come. It is the only scene where Gallo appears to have any dominance whatsoever, but it is quickly sucked out of him (pardon the pun). In the next scene, he is lying down on a bed, sobbing and whimpering, as a silent flashback reveals the truth about his sadness. You might see it coming, you might not, but in the final shot of the film, soon afterwards, when we see him driving again, it all comes crashing down. In that final driving shot, my mouth was hanging open. He reminds me of Guy Pearce in Memento; in that film, Pearce used his memory loss as an excuse to keep hunting for his wife’s killer for the rest of his life; in The Brown Bunny, after Gallo realizes and confronts the truth about his girlfriend, he shallowly rejects it and continues driving, as if the further he drives the further he can escape from the truth. This is why the driving scenes are so essential.

So what was the point of what I just wrote? Am I trying to convince you that The Brown Bunny is a good film, if you hated it? No. I am listing the reason I love it, and that is what I am going to continue to do for the next couple of films.

Gerry (2002)

In a way, the first instalment in a trilogy by Gus van Sant is a very similar film to The Brown Bunny, which we just looked at, except instead of long driving sequences we have long walking sequences, and there is no unsimulated sex scene, thankfully.

Gerry has two characters, but the simplicity of them both suggests it works just as well to consider them as one. They are men who go for a long hike in Death Valley and become hopelessly, mindlessly lost. They continue walking, for the sake of walking, hoping to get somewhere, but as the film goes on we realize that it doesn’t matter if they get there at all. The fact that there is a rescue is not an ending because the film is more about the depth of the human psyche as hallucinations, tiredness and sickness take their toll. The real ending comes before the rescue, in an unexpected scene which I will not reveal.

Those of you who have seen it were likely to have gotten bored. I wasn’t bored for a second because there was so much to take in. The long, endless landscapes, the fact that the entire 100 minute movie was made in 100 shots, the sound of feet on gravel; a sickly crunching which suggests movement but establishes it as a futile act; they’re moving, but are they going anywhere?

If you’ll pardon me for getting “deep”, I’d like to suggest that the walk is into their souls more than it is into the horizon. Gerry works much better if considered on a psychological level. What would you do in the situation that you are mindlessly lost? At what point do you stop caring? When do you lose the will to live? Is the will to live really that important anyway?

Like The Brown Bunny, Gerry requires thought. Consideration. And rewatches. I’m a firm believer in the power of rewatching films. It has in the past, changed a rating of 3/10 into 9/10. And it changes things.

Sure, it’s easy to get bored watching this movie. And that’s what happens to most people. I’ll admit, physically and eventfully, fuck-all happens in this movie. But on another level, it is a complex labyrinth of emotions where even the tiniest event has an effect. Arvo Part’s piano piece Fur Alina is a key piece of soundtrack used in the movie, and even though it is quiet and soft, if you play it at night while trying to get to sleep you will become an insomniac. It’s soft, quiet, but powerful, sad and terrifying. Like the landscape the Gerrys are trying to escape from; like the emptiness inside themselves, like the final act of utter desperation and violence.

Somewhere (2010)

Continuing the theme of films about psychologically empty protagonists moving but never really getting anywhere, Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere makes it a point to explain the harsh nothingness inside its protagonist. He himself says that he’s nothing, and whatever meaning we’re supposed to take from that statement seems irrelevant when you consider that he has the upper hand on nothingness because he realizes and acknowledges that he is, indeed nothing.

That isn’t to say that he’s a smart, or good person. He hires strippers to come to his hotel room and dance; not to necessarily give him pleasure, but just to try and get a grip on his own sickness and defy it. When his daughter comes along, his life is made better, even if only slightly. He enjoys her company, and attempts to use it, like he did with the strippers, to try and change his own emptiness into something. Something… what? Something useful? Something worth living for? Now that would be a cliche. No, he needs his daughter to reaffirm that he has actually done something. As to whether that something is good or bad or whatever, it hardly matters to him; what matters is that he has done it, his daughter is a product of him and she is… something.

And he wants to know, if that something can take him somewhere. Some place different from the rut he is stuck in. He wants to escape from the endless cycle of hotel rooms and waking up with strange women after nights of emotionless, mechanical sex, and he’s hoping his daughter will be the key. But as it turns out, she is not. The point of his daughter showing up is to hint to him, subtly, that he needs to get up and do something about his shitty life. But that something that will lead him somewhere is a thing he needs to figure out for himself, alone. Driving around in circles won’t help, but standing up and walking into the distance might accomplish something.

So what’s so great about this movie, and why do people dislike it? It’s probably because they find it boring. The whole point of this post is to highlight movies I like that many others don’t, but what’s the real reason? Why do I have such a fascination and attraction toward inaccessible movies. This is me, the guy who listed Eyes Wide Shut and Inland Empire as a couple of his twenty favourite movies of all time, so why? I certainly don’t think I’m smarter than anyone else, or that I just have an eye for picking up details others miss. I like to think I’m as normal and adventurous when it comes to movies as anyone else. I can list the things I like about these movies, and I like to hear peoples’ responses to my thoughts, and if I hear someone say, “I hated that movie,” I say okay, that’s fine, everyone’s entitled to their opinion, yadda yadda, but without really thinking about what makes peoples’ film tastes unique. I think it’s great that we live in a world that thrives on opinion; that at least, proves to me that we aren’t (metaphorically) robots, but where do peoples’ tastes come from? Is it the movies they watched growing up? Let’s see what movies I watched growing up… not that many, but mostly what all the other kids were watching. Does it come from how I was raised? Well, with a smarter-than-average older sister who is a law student, wife and mother, and a younger brother who is an auto mechanic, I was really stuck in the centre. No one knew what to expect from me, and likewise, I didn’t know what to expect from them. A few years ago, I had some experiences with film that changed the way I look at the art form (in no small part thanks to my terrific girlfriend Ashley) and fuelled a love for it that would turn into a passionate search through all sorts of genres, experimenting and trying new things. I can never really pinpoint what changed and when, but at one point something clicked; I read a million bad reviews of a movie, so many that when I saw it and kind of enjoyed it, I rejected that enjoyment as a wrong feeling and dumped the film. Then when Ashley saw it without reading a single review, she said it was brilliant and it’s now one of her favourites. That was what prompted this delve into opinion; opinion is the core of humanity, the foundation of choice, and yet, it is what brings us to our knees in either anger or pleasure; it is what makes us unique and different in any form. Coming to this philosophical, psychological realization forced me to re-examine every film I’d ever seen where my opinions had been different to the unanimous one. Was I insane? What was my thinking pattern? How come I enjoyed it when hundreds of professional critics, hated it?

The argument I’m trying to make has a point, but I forget what it was. I’ve become so obsessed with rambling about it, trying to make sense of the chaos and senselessness that is humanity that I’ve turned this movie blog post into something it didn’t originally intend to be. But it’s a subject I’ve always been interested, how peoples’ lifetimes affect their thoughts on a certain thing. You can imagine a thousand people standing up and looking at a painting (or a film), and each of them having a different view on it or an understanding of it. What fuels this? Pray, tell me what makes it all so different?

I’m sorry if I’ve alienated anyone with my rambling… I really should drink less coffee, but let me sum up this point by restricting it to film: I have written some short paragraphs on three movies in this post, The Brown Bunny, Gerry and Somewhere; three films I loved a hell of a lot. I was going to write about some other films I love but I guess I don’t really need to tell you that I think I’ve written enough.

Sorry if I’ve wasted anyone’s time, but if you have an experience with movies then there has to be at least one you feel this way about! Vincent Gallo, Gus van Sant and Sofia Coppola copped a lot of hate for the movies mentioned here, none moreso than Gallo, but I think it is tremendously unfair. If you go around hating a movie, watching it and then denouncing it; if you watch it filled with hatred, without consideration for it, then that’s not the way you should watch a film. And I think, with these particular films, it would be better to watch them without reading any reviews whatsoever. But that’s too late now, huh?

Now it’s your turn, and this part is incredibly vital. So many people view these pages without commenting, but I implore you to comment. I ask you, what did YOU think of the movies I’ve mentioned? What are some widely disliked or ignored movies you treasure? Be completely and utterly honest, because if you have anything you’d like to add relative to this subject then I urge you to. Thanks so much for reading, and I promise next time I write something it won’t be as long, rambling, and time wasting as this.

  1. i may have already shared my love of brown bunny. and you have rambed quite extensively there. we share similar tastes i feel but i just couldn’t enjoy somewhere. it was trying too hard to be like a vincent gallo picture for me. but generally i am open to these kinds of “challenging” movies.

    you touch on the truth behind my love of these much maligned movies, they are more like art than entertainment. film as art. it appeals to me a great deal. films that can touch at the root of humanity exploring the common ache of heart and head. and like all kinds of art they are open to interpretation and most importantly likely to be misunderstood. i point to the works of haruki murakami as an example. his literature often feels like a vincent gallo movie to me in terms of tone (perhaps not content because there’s very little in the way of oral sex outside of norwegian wood if i remember correctly) and he seems to be widely regarded as a modern literary genius loved by many. but i would say that movie adaptations have failed and been widely ignored because the tone doesn’t translate well to the screen for the majority. go see Tony Takitani if you haven’t already, i would be interested to know your feelings on it.

    the flipside is peoples reactions to mainstream cinema and i have no explanation for why different people are entertained by different things. we have discussed recently that some people think they should be entertained when they watch something and so tell themselves that they were. same as you rejecting a movie because you were told it was rubbish. this “water cooler” decision making is responsible for a lot of films making money when it’s obviously quite undeserved.

    now look at me rambling in your comments post. sorry.

    • It’s okay, this is a post about rambling, so rambling in the comments is quite welcome.

      People are way too influenced by the media. I think Gallo included a blowjob in his movie not just because it seemed necessary, but so that it would get attention and thus make money. Although people going into that movie expecting to see a Porno were to be disappointed.

      I love to read reviews and write them, but I think with peoples’ reliance on them begins to remove the element of choice. They say, hey if the critics denounced it, then I won’t like it, and that’s not the way to be.

      You can write and read reviews all you want but nothing beats the experience of actually seeing the film, even if it does turn out to be awful.

      • it’s the same with anything though. people who spend entire concerts trying to record video with their phones will never remember or enjoy the show because their experience of it is through their phone.

        and reviews….i think people approach them the wrong way. most people ignore the content, the why the reviewer thinks it’s a bad film, and just settle on “it’s a bad film.”

        brown bunny is a very interesting case, ebert’s original review is the one they point to and use as a stick to beat the film whilst conveniently ignoring the fact that ebert went back, saw the final cut and then wrote a positive review. it entered social consciousness as a bad film and nothing could change that, not even the generally most respected movie reviewer in the world.

        • I agree completely, mate. The film defines “underrated.” but of course, opinions differ and there will always be the haters, people I desperately try not to argue with. It’s hard to try and prove someone wrong when the whole argument is predicated on opinion.

  2. Crikey!!! Tyler is undoubtedly suffering from RSI now after all that typing!

    Matey I am on the other side of the world and also the other side of opinion on films. None of the films you talk about appeal to me at all. I have a copy of Somewhere to watch at home (somewhere?) but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.

    It is funny but I only know Brown Bunny as the ‘blow job’ movie. hahah SO the fact he only put it in there to get attention worked hey?

    When it comes to others reviews. If someone hates a movie, it doesn’t put me off from seeing it. In fact if I go in with a real low expectation then I often enjoy the film more…(apart from Sucker Punch LOL)

    Nice recabling Tyler. now go and rest your hands…

    C

  3. LOL Apple’s OSX Lion has auto correct, it turned rambling into recabling….HAHAHA Sorry

    • Haha, it’s okay, I need to recable my brain after all this writing.

      I honestly think Brown Bunny was a good film, but I must stress the BJ was not just to get attention – Gallo was also trying to make a strong point about his character.

      But hey, if it doesn’t interest you then fair enough. Even if people are convinced to watch it by reading what I wrote I doubt the general public would still enjoy it. So many of them are fickle and idiotic: it’s up to great minds like us to change all that! Who’s with me… Uh, Custard… You there? He’s gone. Oh no, not again!

  4. Somewhere is an absolutely brilliant film. I love becoming a back seat passenger in a character’s life, and Somewhere does that perfectly.

    As for the rambling…that was a very strong argument you have there. While I can’t say my tastes are as eclectic as yours (mainly because I don’t have the money for or access to most of these movies), I often love movies other people hate. You know, it’s really hard working at Blockbuster, because everyone keeps frowning upon the staff picks and viewing choices I make. Apparently it’s strange. And I’m just like “fuck you, at least I’m not the one who thinks Big Momma’s House: Like Father Like Son isn’t a masterpiece.”

    Nice post, though! Definitely ramble more, I love rambling!

    • They’re not too hard to find. Every movie mentioned on this page (although I’m not sure about “Gerry”) can be found on Fatso. But the films themselves are quite obscure.

      I would not want to work at a video shop if I was to be the only one with really decent tastes. Although the fingertip-access to movies is tempting…

      • I know they’re on Fatso, but money is an issue (you should see my queue…with the plan I’m on it’ll take me at least a year to clear them all up).

        Oh, and finger tip access to movies basically outweighs my fellow staff members bad taste!

        • I completely understand. There are hundreds on my queue also and it can get very annoying. I can only wish you the best of luck with them, and of course money can be an issue. However, when you have such a love for film as you do you just have to work towards it and keep the goal in sight. There are dozens of worse addictions to have than a film one.

  5. on the subject of working at video stores, i worked in a cool indie video store but it turned out the staff there were clueless about movies too. it was so disappointing.

    • An indie store? Oh God, I would love that, even if they were clueless. I love indie movies. A lot. More than any other kind of film.

      • oh sure, i created an auteurs section and highlighted the huge world cinema section. i enjoyed being a pusher of high class cinema but it was still soul destroying to see the rest of the staff recommending any old shit that came through the door – skyline for a recent example – and playing britney spears concert dvds on the store dvd player.

    • Britney Spears and Skyline? AGONY!!! People’s film tastes should be examined as part of the job interview, especially for an indie store. For God’s sake, people!

  6. that is what i suggested but they only cared about bodies to tidy shelves and take cash. the worst part is that i had to have a general film knowledge test to work for blockbuster in the uk but to work in a place that advertised having the largest choice of dvd’s in the country you didnt even need to like film.

    i now work in an indie book shop instead and had to take a 7 page book test just to get an interview. thats how things should be done!

  7. This is a most fascinating post and I always like blog posts that are a bit personal in nature. There are always movies people hate that I like also, and just because people hate something doesn’t automatically turn me off either. Depending on the subject matter and who’s involved, I’m generally still willing to give it a shot.

    I haven’t seen the first two but I did see Somewhere and yep, I hated it. Ok hate is a strong word, dislike is more apt. It’s not only boring (and I generally don’t mind slow movies) but I just find it pointless. But that picture you put here is hilarious, I think that’s the only scene I find amusing throughout the whole movie!

    • I remember in the theatre watching that scene. Someone walked out, there were an innumerable number of coughs, and at least one laugh. I was deadly silent. I love shots like that, although I think it would’ve been more effective without the zoom in.

      • Oy, I don’t think I can watch this in the theater. At least at home I can joke about it with my husband and he can pull out his iPad when he got really bored with it. But we did watch the entire thing, if only in hope that there will be something worthwhile in the end, alas… But yeah, that scene is funny!

  8. Well there is plenty to say here but I fear I will get caught in another ramble a lose my points so I shall try and produce clear and short soundbites for my own benefit.

    As you say opinions are opinions, which make us different and creates diversity in life and more relevantly (to us) in film. Ironically the films you talk about here are not very diverse in their tone or target audience. The simple answer to your question is the majority of people you know who dislike these films are not the target audience whereas you are.

    As you replied to someone “I would not want to work at a video shop if I was to be the only one with really decent tastes” this pretty much sums up the hypocrisy of your entire mind frame. You sound like every person who thinks The Brown Bunny is a waste of celluloid when you yourself are happy to denounce mainstream cinema. Don’t get me wrong, bad cinema exists in all the spectrums but to proclaim confusion towards those who don’t like what you like is downright solipsistic. I’m no angel myself, I have been quick to denounce films of both the mainstream and the independent subjectively and I still stand by most of them without the obligation of vindicating my rational but I protest no ignorance in realising some films just aren’t for everyone.

    I like to look at it this way. Every film ever made has someone who likes it and someone who doesn’t. There will never be a film made that will be unanimously loved or universally despised. So when come across a film which you connect with that no one else seems to you should feel honoured, not ostracised.

    Now I truly understand your motivation behind this post. I have worked at my local rental store on and off longer than I would like to admit and I am obliged to endure every two cents worth from the entire gamut. As they say, everyone’s a critic. Many films that people return and feel the need to exclaim their distaste for are films I really enjoyed, World’s Greatest Dad for example, but I’m not about to point out their ignorance either because after all who the fuck am I to judge? And as far as being influenced by both professional and amateur criticism, bad reviews especially from the general public only strengthens my resolve watch something.

    We have discussed my thoughts on The Brown Bunny and Mr. Gallo in general before and I don’t intend to pontificate more than I already have on this increasingly lengthly comment but if we did it would be as futile as a debate between Michael Moore and Sean Hannity. You connect with it, I don’t. End of discussion.

    It’s not that I didn’t understand the film nor that I though it poorly made. It’s not that I thought there was going to be hot porno action or the fact that I hate Vincent Gallo’s stupid face (or though it may be a factor.) I just didn’t like it, the same way I don’t like capsicum or watermelon. “What you don’t like watermelon?!” I hear you exclaim, “How can you not like watermelon?!” Because when I put it my mouth my body and by extension my brain reject it at no fault of my own.

    On a sub note my local rental store has these three films, two of which I’ve seen. As far as the idea of an ‘indie rental store’ goes it is not only petulantly pretentious but impractical in this modern world. Mainstream rental stores find it hard enough to profit without the esoteric affectedness of catering only for those who actually have ‘good taste.’

    Reading back I seem to be coming on a little strong and ditched the idea of soundbites pretty much straight away but I just think you are better than this redundant post. If you had considered three or more completely different types of film to analyse then this concept may have had potential. Why do some people hate Anchorman when so many adore it? Is Ninja Scroll too violent, melodramatic or just plain animated? Why is Speed Racer considered such a flop when it didn’t lose as much at the box office as other renowned debacles especially when it did end up turning a profit on DVD? Toxic Avenger anyone?

    Hopefully amongst my maniacal ranting I’ve made at least one point somewhere. If you make a guilty pleasures list to prove your not an indie snob I’ll forgive you. Or a best dream/fantasy sequences list. I’ve seen a lot of those lately and probably more your style.

    • I agree with you that more work probably should’ve went into this. I wrote it at 1am after drinking a few Red Bulls and coffee, as I had to work late that night. It was written in a frenzy, comprised of bits of random garbage floating around which I attempted to utilise to prove my point. In doing so, it seems I’ve alienated you, and perhaps others and for that I apologize. The danger of rambling is that it’s difficult to detect if you’ve said something wrong or offensive. I certainly was not intending to be pretentious or snotty or ignorant. About a week ago, I rewatched The Brown Bunny and started to wonder why on Earth there were so many haters, but at the same time there were an equal amount of people who loved the film. It’s the same with any movie really, and I just used that as an example when I should’ve thought deeply about other films. I’d be happy to revisit this idea at some point in the future and put more thought and effort into it.

      Thanks for the list ideas as well; they probably are more my style. And thanks for the comment, too. I know it’s not the kind of a comment a reader thanks its writer for, but the whole point of having a blog is to share opinion and gain reader input, so your thoughts are extremely valuable to me.

  9. It’s because you are intellectually far more evolved then the average person my dear, you could take the title of you post right from my own lips. I love films that require me to think and are quite unusual to the average person. I especially love a film that has me still engrossed in it long after it has ended and I am walking away from the theater. I watch films out of passion not as a simple way of entertaining myself. Film is an art form when done properly and so many take the real beauty for granted it really is disappointing. I do not think you should defend yourself regardless of what state of mind you were in when you wrote this, as it was your thought process at the time was it not. When I started my film blog years ago, my mission was to open up a place for individuals to gather who were as passionate as I was about the many aspects of film from the idea to the development of the actors throughout their careers. I’m always searching and reaching out for resources for unique films that will capture my mind and arrive in a state of glee when I find one. When talking with a colleague of mine that who also works for Dish Network about the October 1st launch of Dish Network’s new package The Blockbuster Movie Pass I was thrilled. As this is just another way, they are making my life easier and more fun. Welcome live streaming! I was thrilled to know that thousands of TV and movies could now stream to my laptop making life even more fulfilling for movie lovers. It seems like they are always coming up with fantastic ideas especially for individuals like me who are so passionate about film and are always looking for old and new titles to take me on an adventure. The Blockbuster Movie Pass will now be a combination of two of DISH Network’s prestigious packages the DISH Platinum and the Blockbuster by Mail package allowing me to stream thousands of movies with my laptop or my Dish receiver. How fantastic! I also now have access to thousands of DVD movies, TV shows and games by mail with unlimited exchange necessary for the movie buff I most certainly am. It remotely streams directly to my laptop or TV expanding my film intake by a huge amount, $10 seems a small price to pay to be exploding with art. Lying back on my couch with my cat and an enlightening film has always been the ultimate relaxation for me.

    • Wow, that Blockbuster Movie Pass sounds awesome!

      Thanks for the comment, I realize this is one of my more senseless posts but I definitely had a point and you seemed to have picked up on it perfectly.

  10. Dreamer of Dreams

    Thank you for the compliment! I honestly didn’t find your post senseless but yes I did pick up on it and I’m pretty good at doing that. Anytime I have visited your site I have enjoyed reading your posts. I will make sure to leave a line when I visit.

  11. Well it is great to be here, and feel welcomed so warmly! Film brings out such a passionate aspect of myself that I glow; at least it feels that way. Being that this brings a source of such variety and that is something, I crave just as much as the creativity and art that comes right along with beauty. Independent films really capture my attention simply considering they are not a marionette of a huge production company crawling behind the limitations and ending up curled up on the cutting room floor. There is so much creativity and enchantment fluctuating out of the freedom of the independent mind that it is spellbinding. With most of these unique treasures, I find myself so enthralled that the world around me ceases to exist and that is exactly how I like it. I believe that is why I went on such a rampage about the Movie Pass because it has given me access to so many of these types of films and I am just so grateful. With the mere fact that there are a myriad of creative minds out there I know that the future will never face a drought in pure thought films so I am mystified and awaiting their genesis.

    • I agree with you about independent cinema, it is a great, great genre of film. I can’t really top what you’ve said in your comment; all I can do is thank you for leaving such kind and wonderful words.

  12. Creative Admirer

    For me, I like to let my mind flow as it feels open to do so, I found the same in your words and that brought me here and keeps me coming back. I like having the interaction and enjoy stimulating conversation especially when it comes to films as there is always an opportunity for sharing something new and exciting or unique and over the top. Thank you for the compliment, I always try to speak from my heart and that is as we all know a difficult part of communication for some folks. Yet, in my mind, it is the only way I find peace and beauty through interaction. For instance, I have an intolerable migraine yet I feel the need to release my minds excess regardless of the fact that it hurts. For me writing gives me the opportunity to allow my thoughts to flow so much more freely then they would normally unless I was actually interacting in person with an intellectual who was open. I find that hard to find so coming to the internet I am able to show my gratitude for communication and film and plainly the beauty of thought. I do appreciate that you have continued to interact with me here on your blog, have you had a chance to check out the Blockbuster Movie Pass? I think it would be right up your alley!
