Nice ‘kitsch’ cinematography.. the colour palette of that era was truly something, just like the candy.





Totally agreed.

Plus there is an enigmatic undertow, that grabs You, down to the 7th episode. It's with fear and trembling that I need to go on with it, in the kieerkegarian sense of RX to balm my Nitzchean twist.

Appalled and fascinated at the same time.

I don’t have Netflix, but if I did, that show would certainly be on my viewing list.. it’s my kinda cray, but I guess the fact that such a scenario can and has been real, makes it all the more disturbing, and yet.. the show must, go on.

..an oldie but a goodie, last night.. The Terminator.

As I hadn’t seen it in years, it was as if I was watching it for the first time, through fresh new eyes and mind.. but I guess that’s what the passing of time does, for ya.

The Last Man on Earth

Saw it way back, but some claim it's almost a sinister plot, plan to see it tomorrow.

Netflex: Sound of Metal

Found it hyperbolic and great visuals, actors practicing obvious restraint, that could be softened.

But the overall effect was superbly crafted.

I don't think I have to worry about what to do about what i want, at any rate, both films have promise and pull.

I'd rather see movies with a lot of latitude, and promise of deeply dramatic flair, inscriptions successful social change, without loosing the patent glimmer of the surface, while absorbing the effect of genuine and meaningful colors.

Your film used a lot of pastels, indicating a hopeful resolution, while suspending too much contrast, so as to frame the success of the mix.

The Truffaur film, mine choice, is oppositely focuses on contrasting colors, indicative a more referential descenr: in fact the emulation of the thick literality of Victor Hugo, has not successfully translated into the paper thin fragility of Adjani. The lack of optical optimism, has no promising lead into a successful embrace of both characters, the interaction stems from a very deep structural efficacy on part of the translated Hugo daughter, to the barrage of whirling emotional phenomena .

Your film , much more gracefully accepts the heaviness of the romantic sacraficd, and textually is much more evident of feminine thoughtfulness than of the mistique of sacrafice.

I am try in to make 'lovs' excluding all elss, to be the focal point between any and all dramatists personae.

It would be but very dull, if all films looked and sounded the same..

I like diversity.. of film, and music, and song, and I watch that which compels me to watch it. ; )
