"A lot of movies are like a slice
  of life, mine are like a slice of
  cake." - Alfred Hitchcock

 

I have yet to meet a person who was not influenced by cinema. I know a lot of people who never opened a book in their life, I know a lot of people who still have no idea what the internet does or what on earth is an ipad, but cinema? Unless you grew up barefoot in the savannas of Africa, you have been touched by the magic of cinema, as a child, as an adult, as a person .

 

 

You cant sell news stories that have data and cautious predictions. Where is the panic? Where is the impending doom? C'mon people , give me something to work with here…

Before TV and the internet took over the world, the cinema was the temple of dreams, the place you go to when you need something more entertaining or just prettier than your life was, where cowboys and Indians rode through the deserts of the west, where pirates and monsters were not only real but ten feet high and looking right at you .Cinema is what literature wanted to be. Accessible. And as such, it had a legendary power over who we became, who we are .
 

It's the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented.
They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it."
- Andy Warhol

 

True, I am using the past tense, but not with sadness or a heavy heart. today the TV has taken that role of molding societies and most TV shows these days are exactly like cinema films. Maybe a bit shorter, but that is the only difference. The past term is because of the historic significance of the world of Cinema. I have not come to mourn Cinema, but to praise it .

These are some of my favorite films, the ones who left an impact on my life .

 
Art & Culture : Cinema : Directors

Zhang Yimou is the most visual director I know, and although this statement sounds strange, aren’t all directors visually inclined? When it comes to Yimou the visual part is not a tool, not part of the language and not even a character in the movie, no, the visual part is the movie, it is the world, it is exaggerated just because it is so vast and powerful, as worlds tend to be.

Art & Culture : Cinema : Actors

There is something delightful about him. Refreshing. It’s a no-bullshit kind of silent amazement that he brings to each and every one of his persona, a childhood innocence wrapped in a twisted logic and a hiding behind that charming smile. You can see it in Ed wood, you can see it in Blow, you can see it in each and every jack sparrow appearance on the screen. "

Art & Culture : Cinema : Films

There are very few movies that manage to take an industry and masterfully mock it in a very subtle and clever way, almost without letting the audience know it is mocking and not documenting. Spinal Tap is not one of these films. Oh no, there is nothing subtle about Spinal Tap."
