Mineshaft Gap

It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

Juliette thinking.

In film 101 they tell you never to write anything in a script that you can't show on screen. Never write the word "thinks". Thank God Kieslowski and Piesiewicz skipped that day.

Blue is a film about the interior, a film about thinking. Though major changes occur in Julie(Binoche)'s life, we are always held outside. There is no dramatic speech where we learn of her feelings, no soliloquy to lead us along. All we get are closeups, and we are left to discern what it is she is experiencing.

And as the major stylistic conceit for a film, I can't imagine anything more beautiful.
