Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 05, 2009, 03:26:44 PMit should not be an assumption that they [form and content] work one way or another.
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 05, 2009, 03:26:44 PMFilm is a luxurious art that has lots of layers and combine aesthetics of numerous arts
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 05, 2009, 03:26:44 PMin film, you always deal with levels and schisms because there are so many strands working at once
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 05, 2009, 03:26:44 PMThus form and content should be separate and continually contrasted against each other or compared to see how they are similar.
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 14, 2009, 11:18:42 PM I'm willing to say that making the discussion about "content" and "form" is probably too simplistic because they are sometimes inter-married in different ways
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 14, 2009, 11:18:42 PMyou believe that the existence of a film is dictated after all the different elements have been combined, I say that may be technically correct, but I think to hold that truth as an inherent truth for all films is to just collapse all the elements and I don't think that's good.
Quote from: children with angels on December 17, 2009, 08:51:11 AMMy basic point is this: if you aren't willing to follow through the implications of the "technically correct" fact that a film consists - and CAN ONLY consist - of all its elements combined, then you aren't able to discuss what makes a film a film, and thus what makes it good as a film.
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 17, 2009, 12:43:06 PMConsidering I have read numerous essays that are about films but steer the conversation away from having to include commentary on all its technical features, then I think you also miss the point of what makes a film a film.
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on December 17, 2009, 12:43:06 PMLiterature is a sophisticated art not because commentary always need to fall back on having to include technical details like style and grammar, but because literature can inspire discussion to sometimes go beyond it. I think film needs to aspire to that sort of gravity.
