TMT: On Our Way to Were

This is the next entry in a Theatre… a Movie… and a Time, a series that was begun here. I’ve said it before, timing is everything. And Kelle Pratt, she of the Outspoken & Freckled blog and various, wonderful blogathons, recently batted clean-up with one film for another. Ratnakar Sadasyula, an equally marvelous and generous movie blogger, not long ago completed his Sydney Pollack Blogathon over at Seetimar-Diary of a Movie Lover. This film, in a nice touch, brought the curtain down for the online event, and stirred a memory in the process.

TMT: The Cheaper, The Better

This is the next entry in a Theatre… a Movie… and a Time, a series that was begun here. Recently, my colleague and guest post writer, Kevin (aka Jack Deth), provided another wonder contribution toward Paula, Kellee, and Aurora ‘s splendid 31 Days of Oscar Blogathon.

TMT: “This list… is an absolute good.”

This is the next entry in a Theatre… a Movie… and a Time, a series that was begun here. Two quite separate but relatable things induced this particular theatre, movie memory. The first being last month’s initial-viewing of the 2004 thought-provoking documentary, Imaginary Witness: Hollywood and the Holocaust. The other being my colleague ckckred’s 2012 piece, Stanley Kubrick on Schindler’s List I only recently found:

“Schindler’s List is perhaps the highest praised film of the last twenty years and one of the most heralded. Though Kubrick does have a valid point, I feel he’s missing the message of Schindler’s List. Spielberg’s story not only was about the Holocaust, but the redemption of a man. Oskar Schindler’s rescue of hundred of Jews is not only heroic and brave, but also touching to the audiences.”
