The Shallows – Odabir misli

At first I’d figured that the problem was a symptom of middle-age mind rot. But my brain, I realized, wasn’t just drifting. It was hungry. It was demanding to be fed the way the Net fed it—and the more it was fed, the hungrier it became. Even when I was away from my computer, I yearned to check e-mail, click links, do some Googling. I wanted to be connected. Just as Microsoft Word had turned me into a flesh-and-blood word processor, the Internet, I sensed, was turning me into something like a high-speed data-processing machine, a human HAL. I missed my old brain.

The German lieutenant – Stanley Kubrick

Ovo je jedan od lično mi dražih nerealizovanih Kjubrikovih ali i filmoviha ikada, tik uz otužno napušteni projekat snimanja epskog Napoleon-a (hvala finansijskom fijasku zvanom Waterloo) i zauvek Brandovim mahinacijama unazađenog ali snimljenog vesterna – One-eyed Jacks (dobro, nije toliko loš ali šta je tek mogao biti ostaje nam da maštamo).

Izabrao sam ovu scenu pošto se u njoj nedvosmisleno očitava esencija ovog duboko ljudskog filma iza kojeg stoji sasvim solidan scenario iz kojeg se čita reditelju već poznat teren (WWII, Nemačka), obrađen u njegovom ranom i u odnosu na kasnija ostvarenja ne izbliza dobrom Fear and Desire.

Šteta baš, šteta je, što veli narodna pevaljka.

Čitav scenario vama za gušt – https://indiegroundfilms.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/the-german-lieutenant.pdf
