I was just looking at the oscar awards for this year and I have heard many people say they are pleased with the results. I used to keep up with the oscars since I am such a movie buff but I don’t follow them now that there is no end to the type of movies I can get on Netflix and at the library.
I have found so many great independent films and foreign films that I have bought a number of them. I have quite a collection and keep adding to it. I love all kinds of movies and admire all the people that take part in producing them.
I will definitely check out the winners when I get more time, especially At Eternity’s Gate starring Willem Defoe. I am a big fan of his and there are two lesser known films that he starred in that I want to order. Victory and The Reckoning. Sam Neil also stars in Victory and I think it was one of, if not, his most powerful performances.
I even have a fantastic restored version of The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari which is one of the first horror films. By today’s standards it is not that frightening but it is one of my all time favorite movies. When it was first shown in Germany people were screaming in their seats. How times change!
I could go on and on. I still agree with those that think Citizen Kane is the greatest film ever made. I think the main reason I am so impressed with it is the cinematography. Orson Welles was a painter and the compositions in Citizen Kane are fantastic!
Anyway, back to my work. I was going to start another wildflower painting but I am thinking of painting a home flower garden. I love the way some people arrange their flowers.
So many ideas, so little time. Cheers on a Monday!
