Other than being a profoundly well-acted and directed film, which took Oscar’s 2013 Best Picture, Supporting Actress, and Screen Play awards, it was one of the most thought-provoking films I have ever seen.
I appreciate films that make me think and ask more questions. This film did just that. It made me wonder about the fear that is in all of us and how we can become the epitome of that which we fear the most.
Of course, it goes back to the age-old notion of the thin line between courage and cowardice, strength and weakness, or sanity and madness, and when I asked this question at my other blog earlier this morning: Is Fear Your Master?
Fear is often used to manipulate us in order to control us. We do it to ourselves, and it is often done to us. Is there a reason for such fear, if it holds us back from experiencing life, as it is intended to be?
These are the many things that are on my mind today.
