A lack of truths

Standard

The extent to which I have let this go saddens my heart. Without a meticulous record of 2012’s films who am I? A ruddy shambles, that’s who.

If I were to take a positive outlook (and psychologsts do advice this), I might point out that as a_truth_a_day joins the elephant’s graveyard of abandoned blogs my prospects are moderately improving. I don’t have time to keep it up  because I’m lazy but also because I am getting full-time, well-paid writing work and doing freelance film stuff on the side.

Might I direct any internet wanderers who have washed up here to my Rotten Tomatoes page where a meagre total of five reviews are stored.

3 – Wild Strawberries (1957)

Standard

With deep tenderness, Bergman chronicles the minutae of an old man’s emotional awakening. The metamorphosis is assisted by symbolic dreams, road-trip-induced memories and a straight-talking family member.

Like: Scrooge through the looking glass.

Core truth: It’s never too late to give a shit, particularly if there’s a sympathetic daughter-in-law about.
