The Films & The Feelings

The Films & The Feelings: The Pulp & The Fiction

At this point I know that there is no better start on this Notebook than me talking about Pulp Fiction, the film that changed my perspective on cinema. However this is not a Pulp Fiction review.

Films can be an exploration, an adventure, a sequence, a memory, an event, a joke, a dialogue, a monologue, a feeling.

For me, films are not there to show us what is the point of them, even when the point is very clear. They are there to tell us stories. To navigate us through their little aspect 16:9 space. To remind us, afterall, that we are human. To show us part of ourselves that we sometimes forget. To change our perspective. 

Pulp Fiction, the cult classic film by Quentin Tarantino, definitely changed the way I perceive cinema. Not only because of its' non-linear narrative that my 17-year-old self could not understand at first glance. But also, for all those little details that made me watch it again, and again, and again. 

I love that about films.

You can re-watch them as many times as you want/feel and you can still feel different things, spot random details, fall in love with another dialogue, another character, another song. There are new ways of looking at a film each time one watches it – it’s almost as if the more knowledge you accumulate about the film, the more enjoyable it gets.

I strongly believe that any person who loves cinema have their own "Pulp Fiction", even if they don't know it yet. That movie that moves you, inspires you, entertains you, while it makes you think & feel. 

Our Films & Our Feelings. This is what FEELMING is all about.
