A Real Hero- College feat. Electric Youth
Film is Magic
When i was watching this film i couldn’t help but remember 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Just like Kubrick’s Masterpiece, there is very little dialogue, a lot of cinematography, and a lot more Music. But in Tree of Life, it is a storyteller of the origin and concept of life as shown through the eyes of a gentleman’s childhood memories. At the same time a lot of intergalactic imagery and shots of the universe is sewn in, if that makes any sense
In all honesty this one is a bit difficult to explain considering the nature of the film. It’s one of those that can give every other person a different perspective of life itself. You have to watch it to understand.
What i CAN tell you is that to me (personally) this film is a chronicle of life lessons that you learn as you grow up. From knowing the difference between right and wrong, to deciding your stance on god and religion and deciding for yourself to believe or not, or how you view the world. In this film the main character is torn between such things because his mother and father were trying to show him these lessons with different views themselves. His mother was more nurturing, kind, the peaceful one while his father was more of the strict, dog eat dog world type. It was difficult for him to gain an idea of what is to be learned.
Well that’s just my opinion, if you’d like to create your own, watch the movie, i enjoyed it. It’s very enlightening
Tree of Life
Written and Directed by Terrence Malick
4 1/2 out of 5 Stars
This film has been nominated in 11 different categories including Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Costume Design, Best Original Score, and the big one of them all. Best Picture. It is the most nominated film of 2011
This is a film based on a novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, and it tells the story of a boy (Hugo) who lives alone in a train station, his normal daily schedule is made up of: Tending to the clocks around the station, stealing food to survive, and simply fixing things, all while everyone is unaware of it. He’s basically a rat within the walls. The events that led him there are what develops his ambitious attitude and motives as to why he’s sticking around.
His father (Jude law) was a Devoted Clock Master in Paris. He taught Hugo everything he knows about the subject, and he always shares his other love: Films. One day Hhis father brings an odd piece from the local Museum, to his surprise nobody wanted it so he brought it home. It was an Automaton (robot somewhat) and he believes it was designed to write. He vowed to fix it back up and with Hugo’s help they would start. But soon after his father unexpectantly dies in a mysterious fire that erupted within the museum (i dont think they explained what caused it, unless i missed it) And Hugo was taken in by his alcoholic, less talented, Uncle who too was a clock master. He lived in the station where he tended to the clocks. While under his guidance he taught Hugo all about the station and tending the clocks, until he eventually disappeared. Hugo would then take after his uncle in maintaining the station while still trying to repair the robot on his free time. he sneaks around and steal food and parts to help him complete his project but is caught by a nearby toy shop owner George Melies (Ben Kingsley) and is now forever trying to stay out of sight from one of the Station Inspectors (Sacha Baron Cohen) who doesn’t take kindly to orphans. He then befriends Isabelle, who is George’s Goddaughter. As he is finishing the automaton he notices ONE IMPORTANT PIECE MISSING: A Heart Shaped Key………So he then continues his search for the missing key that would help revive the Robot back to life in hopes of it revealing a message possibly left by his father…….And i’ll stop right there, i’ll end up spoiling it if i go any further.
This film immediately goes to the top of the list in my book for it teaches two valuable lessons, one of which i believe everyone should be aware of about the subject of Film:
1) Film is Magic. You could see the greatest film ever made, or the biggest disaster to hit the screen, but they all share one thing: It is an example of one’s dream coming to life. Whether it is the Director, Producer, The Writer, or Actors, that dream is being unfolded by the wonders of the camera.
Like Music and Art, Film is a Medium where one can put their talent, heart, and soul into and bring it to the audience for their viewing pleasure. They tell their story, as we experience it.
2) We all play an important role in life, big or small. Hugo described the world as “A Great Big Machine” that doesn’t require spare parts for every single part that keeps this Machine working plays a valuable role. WE are those parts. We all have a destiny to fulfill, we may not know what that is yet, but soon somewhere down the road we will learn to discover our role.
I gotta give credit where credit is due, Two of the stars who impressed me the most, the first being Chloe Grace Moretz, who first received Worldwide recognition as Hit-Girl in the comic book inspired superhero film Kick Ass back in 2010. Seeing her adapt from an Ass kicking potty mouth hero with an attitude, to the opposite spectrum, taking on a serious role as a charming little french girl with a fascination for knowledge and adventure.
The second being Mr. Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays the (i guess you can say Antagonist) Station Inspector……Seriously, who would have thought, this guy…..the man known for Borat, Bruno, and the upcoming film The Dictator, can actually step out of his genre (i’ll call it his Comfort Zone) and appear the way he did. It was amazing, i was impressed. I remember back when it was confirmed that he would be portraying FREDDIE FUCKING MERCURY in an upcoming biopic i was like “HELLLLL NO!” I didn’t trust this guy to represent such a rock god. I was scared he would tarnish Freddie’s name, But now Mr. Cohen, you sir have proved me otherwise, and i am now looking forward to seeing this happen.
I have yet to make my decision on which of these nominations will score Best Picture but one thing i can guarantee is that I am fine with any of them. 2011 was a magnificent year for the film industry.
If you made it this far to my review i thank you! And i hope you enjoyed reading it as much as i did typing it. And If you haven’t seen this film yet, i hope this was informative and has helped you make the decision to do so, it truly is a great one.
based on the novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret
