Re: I'm no different from a can of pineapple
Didn't watch the turin horse but I saw werckmeister harmonies , Which is one of my favourite films. anyway, examples of what I consider -cinema-: works by directors like ingmar bergman, yasujiro ozu, Jonas mekas, Sergei Parajanov etc.
I understand why these films don't appeal to most people or why they're considered obnoxious. It is a different experience from reading a book or listening to music, and, in my opinion, that's the way films should be...they should convey or communicate something to the audience aesthetically. hmmm this is going to be a little difficult to explain...
in films I'm more interested in a visual/complex articulation of internal experiences that retains the complexity of the way they are -experienced-, rather than communicate things in the form of a clinical report of sorts...if that makes sense.
I like to see complex articulation of thoughts and feelings, i dont like it when theyre translated into words, that way much of the complexity and richness of an experience is lost.
The woman who powders herself(1974): "An evocation of concealment and unmasking, where the mundane act of a Victorian-era woman’s ritualistic application of cosmetic powder seemingly opens the window into underlying human anxieties of physical beauty, youth, desirability, and objectification."
the man who sleeps (1974)...this is one of my favourite films: "A hypnotic solo by its mute hero, a young man who decides to withdraw from the world and whose mental journal of his experience is confided to us by a girl’s voice off-screen"
Woman in the dunes (1964)...another favourite: "A haunting illustration of the futility of existence."
...I read lots of philosophy books and social criticism, which is why I expect a film deliver its philosophy or criticism or wtv the hell it wants to deliver, in a different way. It should be an experience that stands on its own and not parallel that of reading a book, otherwise I'm better off reading books than watching films. That's my opinion, you don't have to agree with it, but I'm explaining my point of view because you seem to believe this sort of interest does not harmonise with me being an intp/analyst...or sth...
