5. DISCIPLINE:
-
Discipline might well be a measure of the extent to which a film sticks to the rules it has established. Do all the techniques service the theme? Are the performance style, cinematography, editing, design, and music united behind a common voice, one that was selected via the content? Is the narrative told in accordance with the rules of pacing that it established, never staying with a shot or scene too long or not long enough? Are the aesthetic approaches utilized by the different departments working in unison for the intended effect?
-
Does all of the content further the story or the themes of the film? Unless self-indulgence is part of the concept, have all aspects of such self-indulgence been stripped away? Unless digression is part of the film’s concept or organizing structure, has the film avoided such digression?
-
Ultimately, to what degree is all of this done?

Like my profile says, I reblog film an movie stuff. I’m very inconsistent!

Also, this little excerpt is informative. Read it. Read it well.

Just something I want to say

Instead of playing pity party, I’m just gonna take refuge knowing that you actually care and want to be around me. I can’t even describe how much It kills me inside to finally know that I’m capable of doing such a horrible thing to you.

Since day 1, I knew I liked you. I just wasn’t sure I was ready. I didn’t want to have you feel the same way I did when it happened to me. I really love you, I believe I do, I want to be with you and make you happy.

No, I’m not like the rest. No, I’m not your worst enemy. I just want to love you while finding out what I might love as a career. You’re just like me and I like that about you, about us. I really want us to work and work together as the lovely couple we are. You’ve lived your life a little differently than I, maybe you could show me a thing or two about love. I’m sorry I am mean, I’m just scared is all.
Please. Don’t leave, I love you.

(I’m sure some have been in this spot before. Like that one song says, “you gotta love the one you’re with.”)
