Back in October, Anne Hathaway said she saw Daniels All at once, anywhere (and seeing it hit big on it) was so much fun, basically gave her new hope for the futureIt wasn’t just a sign that the film could still be made good All movie lovers gathered and talked about movies as a community. For her, it was a perfect “maybe it’ll be okay” moment.
After all, Martin Scorsese had a similarly rejuvenating experience after seeing a Todd Field movie. tarhe won best picture tar At last night’s New York Film Critics Circle Awards, Scorsese gave a speech and revealed what he was thinking tar And movies like that are key to saving cinematic art — and before you ask, it’s not superhero movies that he thinks movies need to be saved (we guarantees he spends zero minutes every day thinking about them), but movies that are too safe or too predictable tar it’s not.
Here’s part of what he had to say, via indie wire:
For the longest time, many of us have watched movies that pretty much tell us where they are going. I mean, they hold our hands and even though it gets in the way sometimes, they comfort us along the way. This is insidious as a person may settle for this and eventually get used to it. It leads those of us who have experienced cinema in the past, especially for the younger generation, to despair of the art form’s future.
But it’s a dark day. The clouds cleared when I experienced Todd’s movie. tarWhat you’ve done, Todd, is that the very structure of the film you’re making doesn’t allow for this. The movie and every aspect of the movie you use proves this.
Scorsese goes on to rave about “place shift” and how it “reduces space and time to what they are”, leaving Field as if the audience had no choice but to exist only in their heads. He added that he did. Cate Blanchett Lydia Tarr. “We experience only through her perception. Her world is her. Time, chronology and space become the music in which she lives,” he said. “And we don’t know where the movie is going. We just follow the character on her strange and upsetting path to an even more unfamiliar final destination.”
Scorsese also noted the film’s “stunning mise-en-scenes” and “amazing 2:3:5 aspect ratio,” so clearly he’s into the film.
