This movie is definitely enchanting. It puts to test the perception we have on certain artists such as Evan Rachel Wood, the producer, the script-vetter. Even the director.
It’s clear that not many want to take that kind of credit, it’s understandable. But we as cinephiles, love to see someone talented deliver art. Which is at then end, for a great cause, ease the confusion and entertain us with powerful feeling. —What is life without art?
First View: That feeling of Charlie Countryman running in utter joy, stricken by fantasy…or perhaps those kind of feelings that are too good to be true with a significant portion of innocence or just the need to shed the grief. Can’t get the exact word.
Second View: Evan Rachel’s character. Confronted by love, by the unbelievable. Saying the most powerful words. “get out of my life, I don’t want you, I don’t deserve you” a multitude of things when her counterpart in film is absolutely beaten and quite frankly half dead and half alive.
Third View: The ghost of Charlie’s Mother. Telling the darkest joke. Sending him off to fall in love and to fucking die. —-Is that it? —-“Classic me”—-“…Classic you”. The confusion of loving and feeling the betrayal. —Is that really it?
Fourth View: Evan Rachel’s character facing her abuser partner whilst strung along by this tormented guy looking for something more. That type of intensity most often signals a collision. —Very interesting exchange…to say the least.
Just take a moment to watch this excerpt. Let’s recognize the timing of Evan Rachel’s reactions. Everything from reacting to Charlie delivering the deadly punch when facing a one-dimensional bully-(which always makes up for a good antagonist) head on.
The trapped words. There’s no need for words. What goes on in the mind of an actor to convey what is beyond words. —-Believe me, I watch and I learn.
The preparation to play that instrument. —What else is there to say?
A multitude of piercing looks filled up with all kinds of feelings.
A great piece…and there’s so much more to say about it. We’re all inspired by you.
