Movies are still an incredible medium. The best ones I've learned not to think of as "audio-visual" but as:
Take a stage drama, something experienced abstractly and internally, and now find the most expert actors who can fill this, and now set it all /in the real world/ while giving you the impression of something personally remembered. This is it's own kind of magic.
Tonight I saw The Lacemaker (1977) with Isabelle Huppert. Few thoughts:
1. Isabelle Huppert is fairly indescribable in this, this is a movie that is externally simple but then she is like a black hole that everything orbits.
2. There is something so miraculous to me about movies, and especially now when a movie from almost 50 years ago can feel so immediate.
3. I've made a ritual of going to the cinema; I think it can give you space to appreciate a movie the way that watching at home can't.
@kcsaff wishing you a happy B-day (sorry I know a bit late) and hope things go great in SF! Thinking of you lots and sending good vibes.
@kcsaff Hey!! Thank you, I got your text :) We definitely gotta chat. Now that I'm a dad I have so many questions like, Where Can I Buy A Telescope, and Is Anime Harmful To My Child
