Incongruous Detail

Like the magician’s left hand…


  • Three Colours Blue: A beach ball rolls out of the crashed car, across the road and onto a field.
  • The Limits of Control: Two men carry a bathtub across the piazza.
  • The Mirror: The encounter with the doctor; the fence breaking, the locked briefcase, the wind rustling through the bushes as he walks away.

Yesterday, at the beach, I saw a boy flying his kite. He let go of the strings and before his father could catch it, the kite took off; across the beach, across the road, and up into the power lines where its handle got caught. It kept flying.

A film that is based on true events but that strips away every last detail or moment considered to be inconsequential/insignificant, will seem totally and utterly fake.

It will seem fake because it is fake.
