is a propaganda movie against war and craftily intended for american audiences. watched this movie today and i got lost in all the political jargon. i guess this is a timely movie for remembrance day, watching idealistic young people march blindly as soldiers fighting for their country. but fighting for what? the reasons get lost in translation.

this movie depicts truman as a manipulative man and a literary genius. i just hope those two traits doesn’t necessarily need to be present in a person in order to gain respect and reap success in life.

political manipulation. racial prejudice. plot within a plot. conspiracy theory. how much more real could it be? i just think it’s too manipulative and preachy to talk about such things in a movie. maybe i’ve degraded myself and now i’m beginning to hate “intelligent” films. they just seem so …

perhapsi just had a system overload with all the rallies and the state of emergency declaration the day before i watched this. nonetheless it’s an enlightening experience.

memoirs of a geisha

“she paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.”

it is better to watch this film without reading the book first, you get to appreciate a lot of things like the intricacy of the set they created in california to match the 1920 kyoto scene in the book, otherwise you will just feel cheated because the book offers so much more.

math geeks are going to love this, if only they could cut out all the long winding and screaming “i’m not crazy” monologues of gwyneth.
