Today’s lecture really made me miss my old film studies lessons. Watching “
refreshed my film knowledge and I felt myself getting really involved with the
making of the film. Makes me really miss Wednesday film afternoon’s, I loved
watching films I wouldn’t normally choose to watch. Paris, Texas
I find bizarre films very interesting. Like one of my favourite French new wave films “A Bout de Souffle” (Breathless) directed by Jean-Luc Goddard.
I found it really interesting to learn how the French new wave broke the cinematic rules, with regards to things as breaking the 4th wall and a non-consistent character arc. There was many ways in which this film was interesting, and I enjoyed learning about it. It’s the kind of film you wouldn’t necessarily choose to watch, but once you watched it once, you watch it over and over and over…..
Today just reminded me of the passion I had for films and the effort that goes into making them, I appreciate that feeling very much.
