I love talking about movies that inspire me to be creative, but this film has become a yearly exercise to appreciate the beautiful nuance capable in this medium.
I just watched the first fifteen-minutes and felt an emotional response to the visuals alone. I love how the style feels sincere yet subtle; and I'm fascinated by how it tip-toes near the line separating random nonsense and the poetically abstract.
What I'm learning from this exercise is to have patience while developing my voice. I need to be present and focused on personal growth, rather than chasing some prestige ideal of "good art".
