I have been a fan of movies and filmmaking for as long as I can remember. I believe most of us are, and that movies can give us a lot to talk about, and even more to think about. Movies take us places we’ve never been, bring us to other times, and allow us to feel so many different things. These feelings offer connections that bring us together through shared experiences. We might be reminded that we’re all human and become encouraged, educated, and empathetic. My appreciation of film is more than just what I get out of it. I’m not a movie ‘critic,” I’m just enjoying the experience, the art – and sharing my response. I’m showing my appreciation for the writers, the directors, the actors, and the entire creative team every week during my #movietherapy.
While my favorite place to be (besides on set) is in the movie theater, (with a dedicated empty seat beside me), these days I’m back to watching from home every now and again. And they don’t have to be the newest release, or the highest rated movie. There are thousands of movies I haven’t seen. Do you have a favorite I should see? Let me know!
