Anybody have any?
Not that it's going to change anything, but does anyone have any verdicts that time has made them wish they could flip?
Sometimes I think back to my choosing Dead Man over In The Company of Men.
I think I'm just surprised I came to the decision I did. Dead Man just doesn't strike me as my kind of movie.
What I mean is, these days I find life itself (work, relationships, etc) provides all the complications I could want. I don't really need any more riddles, I spend plenty of time thinking over the ones I've got. I like a movie that comes to its own conclusions. A movie that can say "here's a key, try it". If it works it works, if it doesn't it doesn't. It's like a mingling of philosophies, the filmmakers and my own. Two heads are better than one. I like a filmmaker who's not afraid to make a point.
I find the "figure it out yourself" attitude of some movies unnecessary. It's like, "here's a challange for you, there's no right
answer because we never came up with one, you'll have to come up with your own conclusion". That feels like a waste of time to me. I could spend that time thinking over my own life, not some make believe one of no consequence. I get it... I'm suppose to find my own answers to the movie and then in a moment of revelation I am suddenly blessed with a clearer understanding of the real world!
That's romantic, but not very thorough. All I'm really doing is having a discussion with myself. I can do that without a movie on.
I'm rambling a bit. It's not as big an issue as I'm making it out to be.
All that said, I don't know if I would or wouldn't pick Dead Man again.
