    The Bard

    G'day! I've finally finished my second short film over lockdown, and I'm pretty pleased with it.

    'The Bard' is about a struggling young writer and his desire to please his judgemental mother.

    You can watch it here.
    Any views will be much appreciated :)

    For me, This film alternated between two sides of the same Avant-Garde stylisation Shūji Terayama created in a way that I've never experienced in a film before.

    Both of them equally as effective;

    One side felt like a literal punch in the face, utilising loud audio, aggressive imagery, bright colours and powerful smash cuts. This ultimately is supposed to disillusion the viewer.
    Most of these types of scenes contained embedded societal and political commentary of Materialism in Japan.

    ★★★★

    I was asked to give an in-depth review, so this might sound a little wanky;

    I really wanted to like this... I really did.
    But man I am so disappointed.
    I won't make an entire essay but here are a few notes;

    • There was virtually no exposition in introducing the characters and their objectives

    • I didnt feel the stakes

    • I didn't care about the characters nor connect with them

    • It felt so rushed at the start I didnt know what was going on half the time

    • Nolan has gotten a bit too complex, extreme and high concept to care for character development.

    Sorry team, not a fan.

    I watched this on and off for five days since I have exams on at the moment and that this film is really long.
    But boy oh boy I'm glad I watched it.

    I finished the last hour in bed and at the current time of concluding it is 11:55 pm. Being this late in this dark atmosphere kicked me right in the gut for the last 15 minutes due to the pure emotions felt - and I'm gobbling down…
