VIDEO REVIEW: Anomalisa
The main idea for this film review came to me when I decided to watch a movie, but the idea of doing a conventional written review felt wrong for this. One of my classes at HPU focus on analyzing movies to gain a greater understanding, but these things often leads to studying the film prior to seeing it. Some may find it natural to read the synopsis of a plot beforehand. I am one of those people and that is often what decides if a movie is even worth my time. Then I thought, what about reviewing a movie without any information on it. Go against the rules. Neither plot nor genre. Nothing. With the results I came up with together with my friend Leilani on this project I believe were quite interesting. My review is split into half camera production, half blogging style using my cellphone because I wanted to illustrate the elements of film making and raw personal experiences you have after seeing a film you know nothing about.
