Here is another inspired soul by my35project! Continue reading Movies To Watch List
I’ve just watched 2 Days, 1 Night movie starring Marion Cotillard, who was laid off during her sick leave as she was suffering from depression. She was informed informally by her coworker about this. Very similar to my case. But…
As I look back now, my case was far worse than her:
1. Economically, she was married and her husband also works, they own their own place and car, so no rent but a mortgage, which they can make a second mortgage or sell it as they own it.
I did not have anything, no car, no house and a high rent, not because my 50m2 flat is good but I live in a cosmopolitan city.
I did not have mortgage but had rent and payments of my PhD. I did not own anything worthy to sell.
So, economically I was worse off 🙂
2. Socially, she has people around her, a supporting positive-thinking husband who encourages her to fight for her job. I did not even have a boyfriend 🙂 She has two kids who are lovely. I do not even own a cat or a flower 🙂
3. Psychologically, my whole life was my career. For her, it was no more than a money-making job. I had major depression, was on sick leave for 3 days although she was for months. On the third day, I received an informal call like hers and they said “You are kicked out”. No voting, no chance to fight for it. It just happened. The worst thing was that, my so-called colleagues did not even say something against it. I was the one who had hired some of them. Can you believe that ?
It is like being stabbed from everywhere…
All the depression plus my auto-immune diseases including fibromyalgia, leaky gut, IBS, alopecia areata, urticaria, lichen planus plus candida, migraines, food allergies, fatigue etc. it is a miracle that I am still alive 🙂
Look where I am now. Quite a breakthrough? No, but maybe some breakthrough. At least, I am trying. Thanks to you, I have a reason to write. Some days were harder than the others for the past month, and those days, the only reason that I woke up was to write my blog and “try to try”.
Thank you for making me wanting to try everyday…
Movies, like books, are about storytelling. They use less words so it is not very easy when compared to books. Any subject, if told really good, can become a masterpiece.
That’s what I learned the best from the bests among IMDb Top 250. I will definitely use this in my future short films for my Filmmaking project.
Just finished watching Dog Day Afternoon with Pacino from my IMDb top 250 watchlist. I love this man. So real.
Free association to Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine.
This one is too close to an achievement if you call watching movies an achievement 🙂 *
Here is what I’ve been so far: Alex’s scores on IMDB 250
I do as I am sick at home, it is much better than pitying myself and doing nothing 🙂 Here are what I learned through this journey:
It’s coming to an end soon 🙂
The initial list on Dec 24th 2014 (139 movies left) as I have watched the rest earlier than the project.
I first set my goal as “throughout the year” but I changed it until the end of January 2015 as I happened to be super motivated and fast about it. Here is the updated project summary on Jan 4th, 2015:
The movie project is going so good that not only I watch them, I read other’s critics, I write down my notes etc. It is not only watching the movies, it is, for me, a learning platform by discovering and understanding the best examples. In short, learning by examples.
I have always been a theoretical learner, all these graduations in different areas of study, researching and attending classes, participating in discussions, non-conforming the lecturers included.
In the past 2 days I watched 7 movies from IMDb top 250 and there are 57 movies left in my watchlist. I think I can finish them by the end of January 2015 🙂
It is going real good. I am in no rush, I just like watching good art.
After watching all those movies I realized that Monty Python’s Holy Grail and Life of Brian are the best ones to watch if you want some color in your life. If your life is as miserable as mine, you will not regret as you watch them. Bloody hillariously brilliant 🙂
Monty Python made my day in each and every scene I could not stop laughing or giggling.
Thank you dear 🙂
