Hey, good people. Don't hate. Meta tags serve a purpose hence the title. Today is confession Tuesday. Let's get right to it. I do like foreign films because old people, meaning people over forty have sex in them. The women's bodies aren't the airbrushed variety of perky tits and tiny asses and their real bodies aren't shoved in your faces to titillate instead the sex is part of the story. Let's talk story. In foreign films (and I
love watching the ones with subtitles), you get complex story-lines that aren't neat nor served up with a bow at the end. Endings without formulalic resolution, isn't limited to quirky, indie films. In foreign films, directors can take risk without being tethered to box office projections, let a film end a note without explanation, and actors don't have to be fantasy beautiful. They just have to be good at their craft. Acting is required. You, the audience, are required to pay attention. Words matter here, people.
If I sound a bit snobbish, okay. I just like a little substance with my reel. Doesn't have to be all dark and gloom, but I would like a shot of reality even when I'm completely on board with suspending the real world. I want hope I can believe and triumph with a few scars to make it sweeter.
I'm old. I've got scars, and I think I'm right cute so you see, I just want a little bit of real in my reel.
What naughty bit do you have to confess? Drop a link or comment. Booth open.
