The Sunset Limited (2011)
one of the must sees
I haven't let a movie come to my deep mind for a very long time. Movies are movies; there are limited facts in them therefore limited lessons. I couldn't live without movies; but the reason is more like to add difference life experience through watching those stories. But from time to time, as we are lucky enough to have really great people who write and who act, there are some movies that would completely blow our mind, not because how fantasy they look, but the deep deep thinking they bring up. The Sunset Limited is definitely one of them. McCarthy is absolutely one of the best writers.
The mood and atmosphere from the film is surrounding me since. I woke up with the deep disappointing yet also sympathy in my mind and they were actually, freaking scary; although likely because of other stuff happened yesterday Anyway, it took me the whole morning to pick up the warmness. Was people good to begin with? My friend offered me this idea that people carry what from their previous life; if they were good before, they were good, and will continue; if there were bad before, then this life is going to punish them in a way, eventually; and the life on earth is like a long lesson where we need to develop our soul from it.
This movie; it is a thoughtful flowing voice
It will, only if you listen, tell you so many things that matters.
The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
fate free will......
I expected nothing about this movie; I was sick, headache, and feels like my whole bone structure was falling apart You know, psychically ill. Well in such a day, go out for a movie probably could make me feel better. Ada chose the movie; I didn't even read through the introduction. The poster is kinda lame; a couple is running from something. And here comes the story, which is not really new at all; yet wears a quite new cloth. So, fun.
Fate, do you believe it? Most people I know do believe. The fate brings people together, the destination leads our way; and what meant to be will comes to you eventually, if it isn't happen yet, it's just not the right moment yet How about free will? Well don't you think free will could be part of the fate as well? Well The emotion drives you to someone or to some dream; and the desire toward them, exactly, could be our fate.
"The Adjustment Bureau" is a new version of God and his Angles. Put it in an easy-understanding way: God (Chairman in the movie) planed our fate, for people who is important on the earth; and Angle (Officials who wear the hat) make certain adjustments in these VIP's daily life, to make sure their behaviors follow the plan; the old-school plot, you know, spill coffee to make you late from work, or in worse case, change your mind or the wost, reset your brain.
The story is of course about free will, which suppose to against the fate. The guy who meant to be the Present of United States fall in love with a girl, who'd make him feel satisfied and no longer needs to be powerful or ambitious. They can't be together cause that would ruin the greater good for both of them.
Well the guy discovers the Bureau and decides not to follow the plan, cause he really loves the girl and that is all he needs. (Wooo nice guy haa?) And the even more 0ld-school ending After all the risks they took, the Chairman decides to let them go, to change their plan, to fulfill their free will. And the whole thing is more like a test, to see if they could take every difficulties to be together. In another words, they are meant to be together, the God just need to be sure how strong the will is. Beauties walk on street with smile and happiness; END.
Like I said, old-school plot Name few talk about the same thing Er, INK? Yeah bad guys who bring bad impressions and good guys bring the good staff, to make the hero change or keep go down to hell Blabla.. What else? Well, there are a lot, aren't they? = =~~ (Shame can't remember any ) Okay, no way I could think through the fate vs. free will thing These are words around us all the time: fate, destination, soul mate, plan for life, desire, emotion Oh C'mon, what is it? Do I have a destiny? Who is my soul-mate? Can it be like that, I randomly meet a person and I will easily spend the rest of my life with him? How can such thing happens from no where? Love is a long journey. It comes with compromise.
It's a good thing though. If it comes, the Present of United States couldn't mean nothing. I believe that. : ) I don't care how much percent of this love is planed and how much is lead by my free will.
