No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough

Ok, nekad tamo prije koju sedmicu sam pisala post o filmskim preporukama i spomenula mnogo dobrih filmova, možda i nagnala nekoga da koji pogleda. Ipak, ostalo je toga i za drugi dio koji sam pripremila još davno, ali nikako da objavim. Lijena sam. Samo u maju sam svake sedmice uključivala mašinu za suđe jer mi je postalo mrsko baviti se ičim, a ponajmanje suđem. Fuckin' suđe i veš! Ma koliko prala, uvijek opet ima za prati!

Dakle, filmovi koje treba svako jednom pogledati idu sljedećim redoslijedom od boljeg ka još boljem:

The Imitation Game je meni možda i najbolji film s liste. Mada je jaka konkurencija, pogotovo među prva tri. Svaki se bavi drugom tematikom, pa je time još i teže dati jednom prednost, ali ovaj me je film u neku ruku ostavio bez daha. Benedict Cumberbatch je briljirao. Mada je on meni brilijantan u svemu što radi (Sherlock!). Ovakve uloge kompleksnih i neshvaćenih genijalaca mu valjda dolaze prirodno. Definitivno svakom preporučujem. Nećete ostati ravnodušni.

Joan Clarke: Do you know, this morning I was on a train that went through a city that wouldn't exist if it wasn't for you. I bought a ticket from a man who would likely be dead if it wasn't for you. I read up, on my work, a whole field of scientific inquiry that only exists because of you. Now, if you wish you could have been normal... I can promise you I do not. The world is an infinitely better place precisely because you weren't.
Whiplash uh, uh, trebalo je par dana da mi se slegnu dojmovi nakon gledanja. Sjećam se da sam pročitala jednu prilično besmisleno negativnu kritiku u New Yorkeru, i to odmah koji dan nakon gledanja u kinu, i nakon toga pomislila da ovo stvarno i nije film za svakoga. S jedne strane to je film o muzici, o strasti, o ambiciji i guranju nekoga preko svih ljudskih granica u želji za savršenstvom. S druge strane film je adaptiran da bude prihvaćen u, ipak malo široj publici, a ne samo među tipičnim muzičkim i jazz ljubiteljima što možda nekima nije po volji, no koga briga za takve. U svakom slučaju J.K. Simmons je ovim filmom vjerovatno odigrao ulogu života. Ulogu koja će ga sigurno obilježiti i po kojoj će ostati pamćen.

Terence Fletcher: I don't think people understood what it was I was doing at Shaffer. I wasn't there to conduct. Any fucking moron can wave his arms and keep people in tempo. I was there to push people beyond what's expected of them. I believe that is... an absolute necessity. Otherwise, we're depriving the world of the next Louis Armstrong. The next Charlie Parker. I told you about how Charlie Parker became Charlie Parker, right?
Andrew: Jo Jones threw a cymbal at his head.
Terence Fletcher: Exactly. Parker's a young kid, pretty good on the sax. Gets up to play at a cutting session, and he fucks it up. And Jones nearly decapitates him for it. And he's laughed off-stage. Cries himself to sleep that night, but the next morning, what does he do? He practices. And he practices and he practices with one goal in mind, never to be laughed at again. And a year later, he goes back to the Reno and he steps up on that stage, and plays the best motherfucking solo the world has ever heard. So imagine if Jones had just said: "Well, that's okay, Charlie. That was all right. Good job. "And then Charlie thinks to himself, "Well, shit, I did do a pretty good job." End of story. No Bird. That, to me, is an absolute tragedy. But that's just what the world wants now. People wonder why jazz is dying.

Interstellar je sigurno većina već pogledala, ali ukoliko je nekome to promaklo, onda je sad prava prilika. Film je ukratko jednom rječju putovanje. Vrlo zanimljivo i vrlo vizuelno putovanje uz obilje prekrasne muzičke pozadine. A uz to, po meni i divna priča o vremenu i o ljubavi. Možda se najviše od filma može izvući upravo gledanjem na velikom filmskom ekranu.

Murph: Hi, Dad.
Cooper: Hey, Murph.
Murph: You son of a bitch. I never made one of these when you were still responding because I was so mad at you for leaving. And then when you went quiet, I feel like I should've lived with that decision, and I have. But today is my birthday. And it's a special one, because you told me... you once told me that when you come back we might be the same age. And today I'm the age you were when you left.
[as Murph begins to cry Cooper becomes emotional again and starts weeping]
Murph: So it would be a real good time for you to come back.
[Murph wipes the tears from her eyes and ends the message]

Birdman je tako čudan, a tako genijalan film. Do samog kraja ćete biti uključeni u emotivni vrtlog glavnog lika, ali i ostale ekipe koja okuplja sve redom zvučna imena Hollywooda.

Riggan: The last time I flew here from LA, George Clooney was sitting two seats in front of me. With those cuff links, and that... ridiculous chin. We ended up flying through this really bad storm. The plane started to rattle and shake, and everyone on board was crying, and praying. And I just sat there. Sat there thinking that when Sam opened that paper it was going to be Clooney's face on the front page. Not mine. Did you know that Farrah Fawcett died on the same day as Michael Jackson?

The Theory of Everything sam čekala preko pola godine da dođe u sarajevska kina i kada je izašla vrlo pristojna kopija na torrentima, nisam više ni mogla, ni željela čekati. Zašto je tek na proljeće konačno prispio, i to samo u Meeting pointu, a ne u npr. Cinema city, pretpostavljam da je dijelom i radi ateističke teme koja se provlači kroz film, a koja je valjda u ovoj učmaloj i religijski zaraženoj močvari od društva pretjerano kontroverzna za jedan Cinema city. Opet, kada uzmem u obzir profil tipičnih filmova koji se "guraju" kroz kina poput Cinema citiya i publike koja plaća da te filmove gleda, ovakvom filmu tamo ni nije mjesto.
Na stranu to, meni je ovaj film opravdao visoka očekivanja, a i više od toga. Voljela bih misliti da ima ovakvih ljudi zaista u stvarnom svijetu, ljudi koji i kada ih život pogodi onim najgorim što može, poput grozne i stravično teške bolesti, postanu primjer pozitive i uspjeha. Nađu ljubav, nađu sreću i ostave svestrano bogat opus iza sebe.

Stephen Hawking: It is clear that we are just an advanced breed of primates on a minor planet orbiting around a very average star, in the outer suburb of one among a hundred billion galaxies. BUT, ever since the dawn of civilization people have craved for an understanding of the underlying order of the world. There ought to be something very special about the boundary conditions of the universe. And what can be more special than that there is no boundary? And there should be no boundary to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there is life, there is hope.

John Wick je jedan premoćan film koji obavezno trega gledati, ako smijem dodati, posebno na dan kad se osjećate posrano i nemoćno.

Viggo Tarasov: John wasn't exactly the boogeyman. He's the one you sent to kill the fucking boogeyman.

Boyhood predstavlja zanimljiv filmski projekat koji je doooonekle već viđen u filmovima poput Before sunrise i Before sunset. Naime, film prati odrastanje i nedaće proizišle iz odrastanja dječaka po imenu Mason i to tako da prikazuje njegov život u realnom vremenu. Snimanje filma je trajalo preko 12 godina tako da Mason bukvalno odraste pred vašim očima dok gledate film.
Mason: Dad, there's no real magic in the world, right?
Dad: What do you mean?
Mason: You know, like elves and stuff. People just made that up.
Dad: Oh, I don't know. I mean, what makes you think that elves are any more magical than something like a whale? You know what I mean? What if I told you a story about how underneath the ocean, there was this giant sea mammal that used sonar and sang songs and it was so big that its heart was the size of a car and you could crawl through the arteries? I mean, you'd think that was pretty magical, right?

I opet mi je nekako ostalo još dobrih preporuka za možda neki novi post. Ako ocijenim da ikoga zanima.
A do tada, iskoristite ovo grozno jesenje majsko vrijeme i uz kokice, ili u mom slučaju jagode i čokoladu, pogledajte neki kul film večeras.
