As I type this, I’m watching an old silent film. Well, I mean that it is playing in the same room as I write this. The actors, not having the benefit of their voice, always seem to be over-acting in these things.┬áBut then I think about some other, more modern movies, where there are so many special effects added in later that the actors are almost an after-thought.

Sometimes they don’t even act much at all. Phantom Menace comes to mind.

Even with my love for dramas and documentaries, I’m having a very hard time thinking of a movie that actually seems to portray life in a truly realistic manner.

I’m not certain what I’m trying to say. Perhaps I’ll think on this an re-approach this subject when my real life is less chaotic.
