lu: (My favourite obsession)
And so it is. The Festival is over.

I leave it a better and changed person in a way. Each day more certain I want to make a movie someday: be able to affect people the way movies affect me. Be able to be a part of this complex process I call art in its most pure form.

For my 18th birthday, I want a video camera. That'll be my reply to each and everyone that asks me that question in a few months, and, maybe putting some money together, I'll be able to have it.

Meanwhile, I'll keep studying Law, with which, I too am falling in love everyday more and more. I am young, and I have time. Time to study, time to work, time to live.

Or at least I like to think so.

I leave you all with a list of the movies I saw, a short comment on each of them, and quoting the brilliant Clarissa Vaughan:

I can show you my favourite obsession )
"I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself: So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me it wasn't the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then." - Clarissa Vaughan, The Hours.

Post scriptum I: I've had three tests so far. Three ahead. Wish me luck. I'll need it.
Post scriptum II: São Paulo International Film Festival, here I come!
Post scriptum III: Yours truly is working on Video Post #3, and will post as soon as it's done.

Time is running out.

27 movies.

14 days.

6 college exams.

1 girl.

Thunder rollled...

...it rolled a six.

Rio de Janeiro Int'l Film Festival begins in three days.
lu: (Superman)
So I had the brilliant idea of going over my girlfriend's to watch some Lois & Clark (a.k.a. the funniest Bored-on-Wednesday-afternoon series in the world).

Then I had the even more brilliant idea to go the movies watch Superman Returns, and, of course, some more Lois & Clark after that.

The result: I am in love with the hero I always hated the most. The stupid American-ish, way-too-perfect, always-with-straight-hair Superman. *sighs*

But don't worry! I do love and cherish Lex Luthor KEVINSPACEYISGOD, so there is still hope in the world. *grins*

Vertigo Comics presents...

"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished? However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V."

And thus the Wachowski brothers have done it again. Not as good as Matrix, of course, but interesting, fun and smart in its own way. Also, Hugo Weaving successfully proved that he can play the expressionless Death if ever a movie of the Discworld series was shot (God save us!).

...And the lesbians were cute.

"Remember, remember, the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot. I see no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot."

We need to explode something at [livejournal.com profile] christycorr's birthday. Ideas?

And Bjorn Stronginthearm is your uncle.

After a week inside this apartment, I finally went to the doctor and, apparently, all is well. It's quite funny, but I actually feel weird no longer having my tonsils (not that I'll miss them in the least).

Very profitable week, culturally speaking. Watched less movies than I thought I would, but definitely read more than I ever did in a week (when it came to number of books per day).

Thank you everyone that payed a visit ([livejournal.com profile] magnun, [livejournal.com profile] deadcinderella, [livejournal.com profile] wendybarrie_, [livejournal.com profile] _isarma_, [livejournal.com profile] porn_kid, and [livejournal.com profile] christycorr [livejournal.com profile] lian_moony), all of those that meant to, but couldn't for some reason ([livejournal.com profile] dehds and [livejournal.com profile] x_disorder_x, especially), and all the others that wished me luck and the like.

Adding up )

On side note, I've found this at [livejournal.com profile] macintosh. All the credits to [livejournal.com profile] gmajor.

Quite Funny. *grins*

See you people in Rio.

She wants the young American.

It is amazing how sometimes irony and sarcasm can be more effective than a well-based documentary.

Without diminishing Micheal Moore's credibility, Lars Von Trier is a genius.

You you haven't watched both Dogville and Manderlay by now, do yourself a favour: call your video club for the former and run to the nearest movie theater for the latter.

On a side note, to the Brazilians (no prejudice, girls):

Boletim do ENEM )

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
