Expressions of Time

by Peter_Wilson

Created 03/05/14

Edit List

Traditions of yesterday, traditions of today, and traditions of tomorrow. Things that have happened, and things that may happen. Things that were thought of, then another time made. They're the expressions of time.

It's how the times change due to certain individuals and events, and how they effect and change peoples lives.

It's the differences between individual and cultural beliefs; and the clashes and effects of which, and where they lead.

It's how movements begin and end, and how these movements change peoples perspective of life.

It's the boundaries throughout time which many have suffered under, and the boundaries that others have persisted their way through, and how that persistence progresses. It's the way's of life that were, the way's of life that are and the way's of life that may come. They're those things once thought to be impossible, yet are now a reality. They're those things thought to be impossible, yet may be a reality of tomorrow.

    I am actually one of the few that is not on Facebook Jack, for I am a man out of time, an anachronism (hah joking) but if I were I would certainly friend you my friend. Thanks for the invite.

      Well actually I just created an account. Cinemacannon invited me, so I decided why not take the chance to chit chat with other film buffs.

    Do films *about* time count? If so, I would add SANS SOLEIL. Another wonderful list. And I'm not on Facebook either.

      Time is the name of the game, which makes SANS SOLEIL a perfect addition to the list. It's going to take me some time to complete this to it's fullest, which will include a comment for each film, so I appreciate any help from the friendly members on this site.

      If that's the case, I would definitely add A MAN ESCAPED, a film about waiting and patience. Fascinating list idea.

      Also that film is dealing with the life of a prisoner of war which is another good reason why it could be added.

      I was trying to think of what film would make the biggest impact for the theme of the list. And I ultimately landed on that one. And I thought that comment fitted well with the film.

    The Wild Bunch and Hickey & Boggs would both make welcome additions to the Criterion Collection!

    The Red Desert comment is terrific, as well as the one for I Live in Fear, a Kurosawa that is often overlooked... I love your lists, Jack. Facebook is stupid, an awful website; it lives on depression and stupid memes. That being said, I have an account that I visit every day.

      Hey, thanks so much. And I totally agree with you on I Life in Fear, It's an excellent film. And again I agree with you on Facebook. But either way we could talk film in a more formal way. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100007935033907
