Anonymous said: I have to write an essay about film trilogies and I can't think of any other than Godfather, Indiana Jones, Toy Story, Batman, LOTR, Back to the Future, Die Hard, Matrix, Oceans, Star Wars, Alien, Bourne. Can you help out?
You’re definitely missing a couple! You didn’t specify whether they could be thematic trilogies so I’m going to include a couple…
Ray’s The Apu Trilogy, Fellini’s Trilogy of Loneliness, Kielowski’s Three Colours Trilogy, Linklater’s Before Trilogy, Cocteau’s Orphic Trilogy, Leone’s The Dollars Trilogy, Chan-wook’s Vengeance Trilogy, Rossellini’s War Trilogy, Chahine’s Alexandria Trilogy, Renoir’s Trilogy of Spectacle, Ford’s Cavalry Trilogy, Wajda’s War Trilogy, Bergman’s Faith Trilogy, Polanski’s Apartment Trilogy, Wenders’ Road Movie Trilogy, Fassbinder’s BRD Trilogy, Gilliam’s Trilogy of Imagination, Carpenter’s Apocalypse Trilogy, Denis’ Colonialism Trilogy, von Trier’s Depression Trilogy and Pasolini’s Trilogy of Life.
Good luck with the essay!
Grrrl Power. These women are so inspirational and I can’t wait to see their Zona Prava feat. Chomsky interview later in the year. I love the fact their message isn’t limited to Russia even calling Australia out on our human rights abuse. I’m going to start knitting myself a Pussy Riot balaclava tomorrow.
Excerpt from my transcript.
“I’ve never been a religious person; in fact cinema is the closest I’ve come to a religious association. I guess the cinema is my church, that place where I feel a communal connection with those around me; Andre Bazin’s What is Cinema? is my bible and Marcello Mastroianni is my son of God (Fellini).”
- I have bronchitis and a broken rib which really seem to contrast one another since all this coughing doesn’t really help my rib in it’s recovery.
- I need to finish my transcript for VCA by Friday. I’ve still got a couple weeks to put my RMIT one together.
- Our game is slowly coming together whilst our team rapidly falls apart.
- I’m less than three months away from finishing this degree and still have no idea what I’m meant to be doing… should I even be doing another degree? Sigh.
- Buying tickets to see Rodriguez tomorrow morning!
- I’ve seen 128 films in cinemas so far this year.
