The ThinkTank Chronicles.

This is my journey from the deeply mysterious to the outrageously silly and mundace happenings of my life. the lows and highs, the ups and downs. And maybe a Simple Harmonic Motion to an exponential curve. Mathematical, Scientific, Theistic, Philosophical, Logical,Social, every conceivable idea.

Black.

Overrated.
Overhyped.
Just a different movie.

Roles were either over-played or under-played.

Never could i connect to the movie. All i could do was see.The movie was too polished; to be even able to touch a raw nerve or pull the string.

A painting that goes on and on but never is a drama that could evoke anything remotely human...

Some really brilliant scenes.But never could get into the skin to connect to it. Neither could see the grit nor the mad genius.A fine balancing act but as i said. Sorry.

Yeah pretty damn sure its the same thing we saw.

As i said, there were some really brilliant moments in the movie...but i would not say it as the poignant movie that i wanted it to be. And all those moments that could touch a chord were moments of strength. Of joys.

It was a to me trying to evoke a sympathy for the weakling...trying to evoke an emotion of pain with every frame. Much too less positivism.
