I forgot I say how much I dug #Enemy, a little Canadian noir-like movie. A really interesting take on “the double.” And if it weren’t for Jake Gyllenhaal’s amazing acting I would say this movie would not work-sometimes that’s how a role comes to life. I’m talking body language, panic, motion, silence, and language. A really interesting movie full of ambivalence and mystery. It’s like David Lynch once said, “When it comes to a mystery, let some things always remain truly mysterious and or unanswered.” (Probably have this Quote wrong..) #indiefilm #canadianfilm #greatmovies

The Oscar winning film ‘La Grande Bellezza’ is truly magnificent. It’s one of the greatest films made in Italy or any country for that matter. A film so full of metaphors and subtext so rich-that I had to just pause the film several times to think about certain scenes and moments. Then there was the whole visual storytelling aspect-which is the most impressive part of this epic story. Saying more with a facial expression and or visual cue than a 100 pages of conversation. 

This masterpiece was just what I needed as I’ve been a bit stuck, physically. I’m dealing with some Neuropathy and Fibromyalgia-not exactly a walk in the park, but hey, my life could be worse right? As long as I stay focused on my art and writing…all will be fine. That’s enough whining from me. 

The rest of my life is great-as a matter of fact, I’m close  to finishing up something brand new. I’m wrapping up a new script that’s all about Italy (and a few other things.) I won’t say anything else until it’s done…but my writing mentor tells me its my best script work yet. 

Art begets art. 

Ciao…Buona Serata!
