“The way Alex Turner combs his hair is capable of bringing all men, women, and children to their knees. Nothing can possibly prepare you for the earth-shattering, tremor-inducing movements of Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner running a comb through his perfectly greased hair, his shirt sleeves effortlessly folded, his guitar slung around his shoulders, gripping him where no one else can. Man or woman, gay or straight, your life changed in this moment. You became a different person. There was a time before this happened and then there was the beautiful light of all that came after.”—28 Things You Learn At Lollapalooza (x)
Although that i as a college student has a list of to do’s is as long as the cracks of Blue Canyon, i took the minor suggestion our psychology teacher told us to get in depth of the lesson about motivation. The most used up, and extreme example she suggested us is the story of aron rolston and that we should watch this movie 127 hours where he and his triumph is portrayed. As a fan of james franco i decided to watch the movie expecting very dramatic scenes that might be begging me to show sympathy. I was wrong, very wrong, in the greatest way.
This might be a four years old late movie review but i think i should do this. Setting aside my heart on the being of the person portraying the protagonist, I appreciate the movie as it is jam packed with creativity, inspiration, and great amount of motivation, just like the main, real life character, the real-life dare devil. Artistically, the movie is brave in trying different styles to let you feel even the character’s heartbeat rhythm and they did it with such grace. The real story has enough panache but great challenge for a director, and like aron rolston, they were able to get through the challenge of creating a watchable film. But it turns out, it is not only a watchable film like any other mainstream movies, it is a master piece. I have never applauded such movie in my entire life this much because not only i did not waste an hour and a half of my life, it has stirred not only my appreciation of the man’s(aron rolston’s) extreme example of motivation, it did too on my perspective of film creation in general. Though it is a Hollywood film worth 30 million dollars, this film is a humble piece of art by mankind and should be cherished; it should be looked not by it’s action value, but by its portrayal of how much value the man has to himself, his own kind, and nature.
If you don’t understand something im saying, don’t ask me bc i literally don’t understand myself either. also i didn’t look at the videos bc if i would look them i’d end up deleting them. so yeah, sorry. and thanks.
