THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

The Grand Budapest Hotel is the perfect boutique product: from the complete material, perfectly tailored and assembled in witty and comic style, excellent. Made with a good dose of black humor, with one foot in the parody. It is a wonderful movie for relaxation, for fun, for two-hour disconnection. But just that. Now I just remember it with a smile and say to myself: EXCELLENT FILM and than I do not think about it anymore.

The real Alan Turing

Alan Turing, the designer of the first computer in the film answers the question of whether machines think like the people:” Of course machines can’t think as people do. A machine is different from a person. Hence, they think differently. The interesting question is, just because something, uh… thinks differently from you, does that mean it’s not thinking? Well, we allow for humans to have such divergences from one another. You like strawberries, I hate ice-skating, you cry at sad films, I am allergic to pollen. What is the point of… different tastes, different… preferences, if not, to say that our brains work differently, that we think differently? And if we can say that about one another, then why can’t we say the same thing for brains… built of copper and wire, steel? “

In the film Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley) exhorts Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch), who despairing over his abnormality (also due to homosexuality) :” Do you know, this morning I was on a train that went through a city that wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for you. I bought a ticket from a man who would likely be dead if it wasn’t for you. I read up, on my work, a whole field of scientific inquiry that only exists because of you. Now, if you wish you could have been normal… I can promise you I do not. The world is an infinitely better place precisely because you weren’t. “

WHIPLASH

Whiplash is crazy film which is dominated by Crazy J.K. Simmons in the role of extreme music professor who driven his students beyond their expectations as he expressed himself. Crazy! You sit without breathing and horrified stare at the screen because  J.K.Simmons tortures you to extremes. He defines the concept of mobbing and moral justify it. Spits on praise for solid work and words ” good job ” attaches blame for mediocrity. With his offensive words, rough actions and provocations,  defiance, stubbornness and persistence, drives the selected object to the explosion. Wants, craves, burned in desire to achieve that extra something. And the viewer with him. In doing so, forgets the real world, doesn´t sense the physical pain, the need for security. All three, challenged student, Mad Professor and tortured viewer with the same fervent goal: to achieve extraordinary, beautiful, best, heavenly, supernatural, extraordinary. And crazy J.K. Simmons certainly made it. And deserved an Oscar.
