Co-host invitation: Any takers?

Incorporating movement with purpose, Akira Kurosawa is one of the best.

Do you appreciate how directors and cinematographers capture movement? The decisions made by filmmakers are a fascinating topic. Thinking how movement creates a setting, the mood, and compliments an actor (or vice versa), helps me admire a film when it’s done well.

Cindy’s Lucky 13 Film Club’s topic for September 13 is “Movement in Film”.

I will feature Akira Kurosawa as a reference.

If this topic sounds intriguing to you, and you would like to be a co-host, please email to fine tune the details.  No experts necessary, just enthusiasts.

    1. Some ways seem obvious like a cyclone to Dorothy’s story in Kansas. Other ways are not so–it’s fun to discover how the great ones do it. We should do a WWII, L13FC together sometime!

          1. No, I understand that it’s good, but doesn’t make it clear that there were 400,000 there. I’m not really “up on” the ETO to be qualified to comment either

  1. You have tantalised me with Kurosawa, my favourite director, as you know
    However, I have done it before, so someone else should get the chance.
    Naturally, I will be very engaged on this subject. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Hi, Cindy:

    You present an interesting proposition regarding “movement”.

    I’d be willing to offer up the opening sequence of Alexander Mackendrick and James Wong Howe’s ‘Sweet Smell Of Success’ in being the film’s most interesting shot. And in propelling the film’s tale off its starting blocks up to the all night diner entrance of Tony Curtis . And counter it with the opening tracking shot of Orson Welles’ ‘Touch Of Evil’ and/or Robert Altman’s ‘The Player’.

    Just some food for thought.

    1. Well, my friend, on the 13th, can you come back and say it again??

      I have a co-host and would love your reactions to the hows and whys directors who employ movement effectively.

      Was it a year ago we did 70s Horror? Wow.
      Hope you are well!
