“The beautiful is hidden from the eyes of those who are not searching for the truth, for whom it is contra-indicated. But the profound lack of spirituality of those people who see art and condemn it, the fact that they are neither willing nor ready to consider the meaning and aim of their existence in any higher sense, is often masked by the vulgarly simplistic cry, ‘I don’t like it!’ ’It’s boring!’ It is not a point that one can argue; but it is like the utterance of a man born blind who is being told about a rainbow. He simply remains deaf to the pain undergone by the artist in order to share with others the truth he has reached.”
My interest in film began at the time I was in college, watching movies was supposed to form part of my study breaks, shortly after that the studying itself and the watching of movies reversed priorities, now I study during my movie breaks and my future in college is, let’s say obscure at the moment.
I’m not particularly picky in taste and I don’t have preferences between genres or whether it’s arthouse or mainstream.
My rating system:
5 stars: Not always a masterpiece, but indeed something beyond great.
4 stars: Definitely my standard reference for a good movie.
3 stars: Lacking in some departments, but sometimes enough to go to my favorites as well.
2 stars: Not a rewarding work or something I can recommend.
1 star: Anything along the lines of Human Centipede (ineptly done and conceived), Film Socialisme (overly pretentious, product of a conceited mind) or Tekken (just awful).
