The reason I like this movie so much is because it’s a great example of a film based on a novel in which the filmmaker completely adapts the source material to the medium, the film explores themes that can only be explored visually. The book doesn’t have to be better than the movie, but different. Denis Villeneuve is an amazing filmmaker and Jake Gyllenhaal is extremely talented.
Although I’m not usually proud of my artwork, I enjoy drawing and painting watercolor. I never took classes or anything but I started doing it and liked it a lot, I don’t do it as much anymore but I still love it.
Reading is very important to me, I feel bad when months pass and I haven’t tried reading at least one book. I don’t like e-books, I want the real thing, especially when they’re old and have that particular smell that can’t be found anywhere else.
I can appreciate almost all kind of music, but listening to classical gives me something that no other music can. I’m not a music connoisseur or anything like that, I just enjoy the power of classical music and its ability to tell stories without using any words.
Listening to this music live gives me chills every time!
Because of the photos I take, people think I love blood and violence, but that’s not necessarily true. I like the aesthetic and unpredictability of certain fluids, you can’t completely control them and they always create interesting shapes.
Masks have been used in many cultures for different purposes, I think that what I like the most about them is that they can completely change a character, they add artificiality to what it’s supposed to be natural.
When I was 11 years old I found a Tv channel that showed a lot of international and arthouse cinema, I loved those films and the mysterious worlds they showed, it was completely different from what I was used to. Fellini’s 81/2 is probably my favorite foreign film.
I like having deep conversations, people can be very interesting and to have a thought-provoking personal chat can be an amazing exercise to develop characters and write realistic stories. It’s also very satisfying when you can connect with other human beings.
