This was my first.
I hope my sophomoric effort isn't looked at as "sophomoric".
I want to be inspired. By you and the films you've come to enjoy. I'm not the corrierino's largest contributor... that we know for sure. But I come here because I admire most of you and your taste in film. This is a thread where you recommend me a film and I watch it. Afterward, I will write a review and post it.
That isn't my style.
Rules for you.
-Post ONE film. (This number may be altered once I see how many recommendations I get)
-I'd prefer if it were on Netflix. Instant Watch would also be nice, but not required.
Rules for me.
-I watch. Even if I've seen it before.
-I create. I've been painting a lot the past year, so I think I'm going to venture away from it for this. Charcoal. Ink. Graphite. Washes. But, perhaps your choice will inspire me differently.
-I must finish the piece within the film's run time. Not on the first viewing, mind you. But if a film is 95 minutes... then I only get 95 minutes to produce my "review". This will keep me from spending days on it and (hopefully) keep this thread moving.
-My creation may or may not be literal. This is exciting for me because I have no idea what is going to happen. I don’t know what you are going to recommend… and I don’t know what emotions the film will stir in me. Maybe the main character... perhaps a piece of cinematography... possibly the film's overall theme... or even it's rhythm will be my inspiration.
How will my hand react to your choice? We won’t know unless we try…
