The camera work a lot of the time reminded me of Burnt by the Sun ( the wide angle nature shot, slow panning etc). It was also relativity interesting to see some aspects of Czech culture. As I said before, I found the film to be visually stunning, but lacking story wise. [...]

Thoughts On Prisoner

May 5th, 2011 by Geneva Tatem · No Comments · Uncategorized

I honestly don’t know what to think of this film. It was boring. Very beautifully shot, but it was very uninteresting to me. I feel the same way about the other film that I saw of Bordov’s Mongol ( Nominated for Best Foreign Film in 2008, I believe) That movie was also beautifully shot [...]

I’d [...]

We all learned in history class that the Soviets didn’t believe in religion . But religion, or at least some aspects of it, are ingrained in our society. Even the most communist of communists were probably made to go to Sunday School when they were younger.  The Messianic archetype is prevalent in most mediums of [...]

Musical Musings

February 20th, 2011 by Geneva Tatem · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Through the movies we’ve watched, we’ve been able to see ( or rather hear) the evolution of music in films. From Twilight of a Woman’s Soul where the music is non-existent to films like Battleship Potemkin and Man with a Movie Camera where it is so much more than an extra perk ( like , [...]
