FILMclatter. My first post dealing with the recently viewed movie Eyes Without A Face  will follow within the next few days. The idea for this new category is fairly simple- at any point during my viewing experience, there always seems to be one aspect of the production that stands out and sticks with my throughout the film’s end and well after that. This facet can come as early as the opening credits or as late as the movie’s final shot and it can be just about anything in between. Even if Humphrey Bogart stands before me in the middle of the frame smoking a cigarette, I might catch something as miniscule as the hanging picture behind him or the lighting above his head and find it more interesting. After Thoughts is where I get to discuss these small instances, within the boundless restraints of this blog.
Although I must foreworn, these posts will inadvertently contain spoilers and explain elements of the movie in specific detail. So if you have not seen the movie, I would recommend that you put these posts on hold and wait to read them until after watching the movie because we all know there is no greater tragedy than a spoiled movie. The point of this category is to pick out, analyze and come to understanding of why this particular piece of the movie stuck out to me and what it might mean in the greater scope of the film. But if all else fails and I can come to no certain resolution, After Thoughts will lend me the space to vent about this particular mind-numbing element of the movie- but I would rather not waste everyone’s time. So hopefully After Thoughts can serve as a productive column for both you and me. As it can allow me to therapeutically release my stifling thoughts on the matter, hopefully it will also give other readers (viewers of the film) a chance to explore an idea of the movie they might not have noticed in their own viewing maybe even learn a thing or two and in the end join in on the never ending discussion of movies.
