What Bullfight represents (in our society)
2 May 2020 | by mrdonleoneSee all my reviews

It is very strange to have an opinion about Booth height from 1995 but of course I'm in 1955 because the images are so terrible to look at it looks like something John Smith was it John Smith know it was Jack Smith Jack Smith matrix flaming creatures not faced creature is because there was a guy from Lord of the rings but Jack Smith made flaming creatures with all these crazy images of men amusing that she does with bad images in a small room that resembles the one from Saw which would be made so many years later but still here we have something we jumped which resembles ejects disc and raped Jacob's kinda movie and that is a bitter thing that we can see here with people turning and twisting and the booth and we don't know really what it is we don't oversee the people moving we have caused grade at a thing like is always the case in the Shirley Clark moving of course we wanted then what is the real point at the director here looks like it's trying to tell us of course we cannot know this because we are naturally clogged but we can get him but it means maybe the bull means is a metaphor for society and the delay I done is the same one was trying to tame society surely succeed possibly not is the only movie with a certain dance to receive this is another unique part of the whole movie we don't know for sure if it's going to remain this way or not and we can only guess about it we can guess what does it mean the person is dancing the dancing might mean a certain movement to meaning that we think what could everything mean of course this kind of movies is the perfect thing to figure this out we have the beautiful music which also reminds me of Jack Smith's flaming creatures flaming creatures really is a great book book of the book because it's such a book would explain more about what hear the movie bullfight what does it mean bull fight of course it's trying to survive in society and this is perfectly shown by the woman dancing on the screen we can keep on thinking when she's dancing but does it mean dance in his living of course but this is just an interpretation and because of this we don't want to see all posts disappear so we cannot do the crazy because the people from young to be a very harsh and sometimes removing post that are not the way they want them to be like if the Nazis would have one definitely it would be the same and of course we can stay here that's Shirley Clark can have many meanings on the movie and unfortunately the movie is just a little bit too short for the people to guess really but it is a bad because when they get the first time it's very obvious favoritism at the movies rarely this is the case to be shortly what they are seeing them because of this we can definitely say that this is not the way we think it would be but rather but we are not thinking about and that is the meaning of the movie and this is why nobody should have the right to stupid reviewer from somebody thinks about the movie because every thought about the movie is definitely right and that is the whole food in Chelan Allah is there is only one God which is a line is the only God and we are there in like the if they want to kill the bird is this the end of life is this the breaking of society the different sorts of relationship we have with live on the living and all these things and rain are we going to fight back he's done the thing is on Judgement Day think about if we don't know it sure and that is all of this of course point point point
