Signs – Movie Analysis

Signs-1

Signs is a very special film for me. Some viewers may know it’s the film that made me who I am today. When it came out in 2002, I was 14 years old, and I remember my first visit to see it very vividly. It was the first time I really started to think seriously about film. Up until that point, I hadn’t really thought about the art of filmmaking. Signs was the film that sparked the desire that led to the purchase of a camera, many short films, and a love of movies that hasn’t left me to this day. I firmly believe that if I hadn’t seen Signs on that specific day, I wouldn’t be talking to you guys right now. Oddly enough, the film deals with a very similar message on coincidence and fate.

Drive – Movie Analysis

Drive-Ryan-Gosling

I’ll never forget the first time I saw Drive. I’ve since never been able to replicate the experience. Director Nicolas Winding Refn crafted an incredible, stylized vision of the seedy Los Angeles underworld, filled with jaw-dropping scenes of tension. Naturally, the public had a tough time grasping this very different film. Understandably, it’s not a normal movie, and many were expecting something more conventional.

In this video, I delve into the hidden layers of the film, and talk about the filmmaking on display, and my thoughts on the metaphorical journey of The Driver. Hit the jump to watch my full video…

Prometheus was polarizing in it’s response from film-goers, and one of the largest reasons tossed around the internet was for it’s deeply confusing and grand scale metaphors.
