Words and Pictures – movie review

I watched this movie on the plane from Singapore to Bangkok. 

The movie asked a very pertinent question: which has more value and worth – art or words?

De Santo (Juliette Binoche) is a well known artist who has to stop painting due to a rheumatic illness. She accepts a teaching position in a private school and challenges the English teacher Jack Marcus that a painting is worth more than a thousand words.

Jack is an alcoholic whose job is on jeopardy. His passion for words is obvious as every long vocabulary he uses is followed by the root origin of the word and the long syllabus word quizzes he likes test his listeners. His  magazine for students’ work is being withdrawn and he faces expulsion from a teachers’ guild club.

The contest between words and picture motivates the competitive couple to overcome her disability and his complacency to break their mental barriers and create again.

The couple falls in love and in a night of drunkard stupor, he destroys her painting. Remorseful,  he seeks help from AA and they reconcile.

But wait,  so which has more worth? Art or words?  Watch the movie to find out. But my appreciation for the written words definitely beats my appreciation for abstract art.

I like the quotes he use from books to to describe ordinary scenes:

John Updike describing birds sitting randomly on a wire as punctuations for an invisible sentence.

Jeanette Winterson on shafts of sunlight streaming in from open windows – tripping over slaps of sunshine the size of towers.

Joyce Carey’s description of a cold morning – frosts on grass like condensed moonlight.

Wish I can write like that too.

Noel And His High Flying Birds Are Back With ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’

Returning for a second helping after the success of self titled 2011 début album Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are back with new single ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’ taken from the forthcoming Chasing Yesterday.

It’s always exciting news when one of the Gallagher brothers pipes up. They only really speak if they’ve got something important to say, and that’s all the fucking time if you believe Liam. Noel is more subdued though. He’s a thinker, more open, really he’s the brains behind Oasis and the success of his band afterwards in comparison to Liam’s Beady Eye proves that.

The 2011 self-titled maiden release Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds was a massive success for the former Oasis guitarist. Manchester’s finest brought us some new sing-a-long anthems like ‘AKA… What A Life!’, ‘If I Had A Gun’ and ‘The Death Of You And Me’ and it seems he’s now back with more of the same.

Repeating the same formula isn’t a problem as long as it continues to be successful and when you’re as massive as Noel G popularity and credibility will never be a problem. Gallagher’s ability to write a catchy and atmospheric indie anthem has not faded with this latest release. ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’  kicks off with the perfect festival chanting line “na-na-na-na-na-na!” and it’s repeated throughout – simple and effective. Gallagher’s voice is even better than before, continuing to mature and fine-tune with age. A more reserved tone but still with a tinge of the youthful attitude of days gone by.

I’m sure this track will whet you appetite for Chasing Yesterday set to be released in March 2015. Let us know what you think by commenting below!
