Yes, that's the problem for most people, obviously this film is from another (Soviet) era.
But I always admire film makers that have the audacity to put lengthy scenes in their films.
Think the Soviet film committee was not pleased with some scenes either.
Speaking of lengthy scenes, Michael Haneke's film Caché also has a very lengthy scene in which you only see a house in a dark street for minutes, and nothing happens, love that scene !
The thing is, IRL and F2F you can say "That movie sucked - you've no taste" in many ways, and your body language and tone of voice makes it clear. It could be aggressive or humorous. But when you write that in a forum comment, no-one has any idea how you meant it, and people generally assume the worst (paranoid little things that lots of people are.) Yes, that's what smileys were invented for, but when firing comments off people can often not bother with them, or simply forget that the other person can't see the big grin on their face...
On Monday morning at the office someone walks in and says "I just saw X and it was great"
Would anyone here say - That movie sucked "
Yes. I would
and "you've no taste"
depending on who told that, yes I would say it. On people I don't have that much to do with, then I would moderate that part of the sentence.
I find abit amusing your post regarding your signature
I'm pretty sure I would not like to live in a world in which I would never be offended.
I am absolutely certain I don't want to live in a world in which you would never be offended.
You are kind of "asking" for that
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
