All movies move individual people in some form, depending on their personality. Movies are a second life.

If that is a problem you might want to consider watching stills instead ;-)

Moving should be the goal!
Amaze, scare, depress, shock, thrill or make them laugh, smile, yearn, cry (from grieve, relief or happiness) or feel triumphant or in love.

On my bucket list are:
- making a moving that is so moving the viewer wishing (s)he was dead. (Like Requiem for a Dream.)
- making a movie that makes one feel in love with the world and filled with wonder.

It might take me the rest of my life to accomplish that....

Maybe you can start a new wave of films that aren't powerful enough to move people, feature length movies with no story, just visuals of waterfalls, clouds, aquariums, lint...
Not moving, but somehow... just... there...

Andy Warhol has you covered; EAT, SLEEP, COUCH, HAIRCUT, etc. Here is the description of his movie,EMPIRE:

Quote:
A single shot of the Empire State Building from early evening until nearly 3 am the next day.
When ever you have a spare 485 minutes, you may want to check it out.

I guess I don't get it... Movies should move us. They enlighten, enrich, entertain, and move us. That's really not a problem.

If movies didn't touch us in some way, they would be nothing but pointless blocks of time disguised as something else.... Kind of like the majority of today's movies.

Yeah, we're joking around about that. I'm trying to figure what got under Richy's skin. He started the thread and then failed to elaborate about it. I'm guessing that something really mindf#%ked him. Hopefully, he's okay.
