Realism in Films

Recommended Posts

 

Those of you who have wondered what happened to cause the great financial crash ten years ago, it's all here in this spoof scene adapted from It's A Wonderful Life.

Sorry, Ian, I've not seen that film. I'm not very filmic(?) as, going right back to my childhood, the cinema would give me blinding headaches which put me off going.

This was all something to do with the frequency of the flickering of the film conflicting with my brain - in a similar way to flashing lights affecting epileptics - although I must emphasise  I am not epileptic, just adversely affected by certain frequencies.

A small point is that I'm not affected by TV or films on TV as the 'flicker rate' is very much different from the cinema. I realise that cinemas tend not to use the old film and projector systems now but, I'd rather not take the risk.

I did go to the cinema very occasionally but it had to be something special and I dosed up on the aspirin and codeine beforehand.

You probably have a high flicker fusion threshold jonab. Some people are more susceptible than others.

That's most likely it!

Been watching recordings  tonight of Father Brown. The amateur detective Catholic Priest. It's set in the Cotswolds, but the ambulance they use has Nottinghamshire County Ambulance Service emblazoned on the side ..... No wonder they're scarce here !

Just been watching the news where Theresa May arrived in a Range Rover, it was flying the Union Jack on the front, the flag was flown upside down.

A similar idea in the Western film The Professionals, with Lee Marvin and Burt Lancaster, whereby any sign of an upside down cross means they're in peril. A brilliant film.
