I feel the cold season poking its head through the humid heatwaves of summer. This means, among other things, my seasonal hibernation and ignited passion for films and television on dvd. It's the time of year I will save money by not going out all the time, and spend it expanding my vast collection of cinema.
First on my list of films to purchase, the Sean Ellis directed Cashback. My interest piqued with the online viewing of a short teaser film some time ago, and I finally rented the full length a few months ago. It was many of the things I love about films; an insight into the human condition, the questions raised by doomed relationships and a waning work ethic, the power of the imagination, the art of daydreaming.
I am, admittedly, prone to losing myself in thought. I have reason to believe this is simply a matter of survival. People underestimate the damage day to day living can render to focused brain matter. Lost in thought trumps many, many things my friends. But that's not what this blog is about.
Cinema, film, art. Do comment with some things I should be watching this time around. I'll love you for it.
