Day Six: Tár (March of the Movies)

Very late for me. Gonna throw this thing out and be done with it.

Copy-Paste Synopsis

“The film, set in the international world of classical music, centers on Lydia Tár, widely considered one of the greatest living composer/conductors and first-ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra.”


Actual(ly Lazy) Short Write-Up

Cate Blanchett good. She make movie interesting. Has a lot of tension. Can carry a film on her shoulders.

Very cryptic. What is art? Can we remove ourselves from it? Should we be guilty about who we cherish? Objectivity and pursuit of perfection. Bias. Eyes. Staring. Longing.

Some parts felt like a horror film. Almost fantasy nonfiction. Contrary to reality yet wholly realistic. Who are we if not what we can bring to the world?

Dense. Probably should re-watch. Lots of scenes seem inconsequential. Likely are not. Look carefully. Eyes. Staring. Longing.

Is Lydia bad? Is Lydia good? Is Lydia both? She cries over passion. Something comes over her. Colorless solitude. Her comforting touches are fake.

Orchestras are powerful. I liked that.



Final Score: 8/10
