"Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theater" - Roman Polanski


Like most of the classics in Criterion Collection that I have been told I “MUST WATCH”, I found it well told, well-acted, and well shot, and yet it just fell flat. I understand the brilliance and I liked many things, but it just didn’t keep my attention. Ah, well, I guess my opinions for film will always surprise me and others and remain unpredictable. That is why I love watching cinema, because I never know what I am going to get. Off to my next adventure.

And I believe in some kind of path / That we can walk down, me and you / So keep your candles burning / And make her journey bright and pure

A.O. Scott from The New York Times reviews Frederico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita

It’s the same with cinema: if you have a chance to enter another world, then you need a big picture in a dark room with great sound. It’s a spiritual, magic experience. If you have the same movie on a little computer screen with bad sound – and this is the way people are seeing films now – it’s such a shame. It’s a shameful, shameful thing. It’s so pathetic.
