Klimt (2006)

 Seeing Klimt, spawned numerous questions. Was the person portrayed, really Klimt? To what degree? In a book with the same title from Taschen publications, it mentioned that few things are recorded as being said directly from him. Most info for his life comes from others. For sure, this film acts as a trigger to learn more about the artist. The mentality of the person, outside of any framework is intriguing. The way the society viewed his work too…

To come back to the film however, it does convey a similar aura with the paintings of the artist. John Malkovich gives an excellent performance of an individual gifted with talent, audacity, an unconventional point of view on all issues and the desire to live its life to the extreme.

My rating: 07/10

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

 There is nothing in this film but special effects. Naive and un-rewarding even for the need to see an adventure at the elementary level. With one word: a total waste of time and money. Avoid it.

My rating: 01/10

The Tree of Life (2011)

The theme: a typical American family. The outcome: an inspired film by Terrence Malick. The loss of a child, unexplained at first, the ache of parents and brothers, family relationships, the struggle of the individuals for accomplishment, their philosophical viewpoint of life all presented in an original way. The crucial event is presented shifting viewpoint from  one’s perspective to another, compared to the Nature’s processes, contrasting the individual with its beliefs to the magnificent Whole…
Photography is excellent, acting is exquisite even from the actors of small age.
The Tree of Life is a movie strongly deviating from a traditional theme presentation, revealing numerous issues. It is not an easy film to follow but one worth seeing.

My rating: 08/10

PS. The film’s poster is the only one so far of this size, to match the eccentricity of movie!

No post today!

It’s being some time since an entry was made to this blog. It is interesting how this has a different perspective regarding the life of the author. Of any author … While significant events may happen to an individual prohibiting it from seeing films and priorities dictate the absence of blog entries, a blog seeing as an autonomous entity provides a different, more demanding view regarding its existence.
Looks like the projection of a multidimensional object on a line: major info is lost.

How many blogs one must maintain to project his life on the web? :)) Ridiculous!

Life and helping others is more important after all 🙂
