Some thoughts about film

Featured on dogear.co.uk


I want to see films of bleak environments like desolate Iceland and harsh Russian tundra.
I want to see films about change and class and discontent.

I want to see more films about space. There aren’t enough.

I want to see films with colour palettes of faded browns, deep turquoises, semolina yellows,
   And subtle tones of grey.
I want to see films in different languages, un-subtitled, because they only make sense in their native tongue.

I want to see films that make me uncomfortable,
   And angry,
   And those that make me think about them for weeks afterwards.

I want to see films that make me see differently,
   And ones that show me I’m not alone in my thoughts.
I want to see films with dialogue so natural it’s perfect,
   And quiet films … with minutes between lines.

I want to see films with characters I loathe, and then fall in love with.

I want to see my future favourite ever film – but not just yet.
I want to see films that instil in me the urge to make films …

I want to see the film I keep thinking about making, but doesn’t yet exist.
