Roll On

Today I hired out camera equipment to shoot a short film project for uni and I am rather excited. If only this were mine, I think I would probably be glued to it constantly, filming everything I came across and smudging my eyemakeup so I would probably end up looking like Alex out of A Clockwork Orange.

We all have those films that we've been telling ourselves we must watch but never really get around to seeing, don't we? Atonement was one of mine. I am thinking it was purely because it starred Kiera Knightly. I can't put my finger on it but she rubs me the wrong way and I avoid her where I can. Which is such a shame because I really wish I had seen this earlier. Great story, I was held to the very bittersweet finale which I couldn't imagine a better ending. Oh and featuring Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones) was a lovely choice. Those inquisitive eyes watching every move were a fine compliment to the character of Briony. What struck me in this film was the sound design which was I thought was very experiemental. Who could forget that regimental clacking of the typewriter whenever Briony Tallis embarked on another mission to stomp around the family mansion?

Film Count: 32 out of 365

i do like Atonement but i dont really like kiera knightly her mouth bugs me. i know that weird! but atonement has a great start with the sound of the type write that turns into a tune waiting fo what going to happen.
