What a ridiculous article, with zero meaning to it.
What was the point of the article.
To show that your parents have A.D.D..
That this is the problem whenever someone watches a film at home,and gets easily distracted. Is that the fault of the film?
That people nowadays do not have critical thinking. Do not know how to discuss a film in depth. To go further than surface points of the film. To see the methaphors,etc.
What was the point of this article???????????
It's called 'observing' people.
The way they are, way they act,
Actors people watch, writers do, filmmakers do,etc.
What do you do, read a 'how to' book?
It's 'paid' not payed.
That is why there's not good films today, zero creativity
from directors, DP's,etc.
You're obviously of the millennial school of lazy, lack of creativity mindset.
Today's film world of CGI ,and all the other tech crap is why there are very few good movies in the present.
Getting with the times is a laugh.
For as far as we've gotten, films should be smarter and more sophisticated, yet they're pure crap.
I'm sure you fall into that category
Instead of writing an article about the merits and beauty of this film,
the writer showed ,not just his parents, but too many who don't know how to talk about a film with any depth.
I once wrote an article about how I can't trust anyone's opinion of a film, if they've watched it at home, instead of a cinema, and that includes myself.
There is no way anyone has the same focus, we easily get distracted, half watch the film, at the same time ,checking facebook, computer, seeing things that need to be done in the house,etc.
As opposed to the cinema, where it's dark, all the energy of every person in there is focused on the film.
That is a topic that should be talked about more.
As when I read reviews on films, many times I can tell the've watched it on a dvd.
Especially when they say it's too slow moving,etc.
Quite a sophomoric article
