Lawrence of Arabia

The big things have a small beginning.

Young men are passionate. They must say their say, but wiser people must decide.

Young men make wars, and the virtues of war are the virtues of young men. Courage and hope for the future. Then old men make the peace. And the vices of peace are the vices of old men. Mistrust and caution. It must be so.

The Bridge on the River Kwai

Without law, commander, there is no civilisation.

If we go on, we go on together!

There Will Be Blood

Usually a blog post inspired by a movie has some sort of conclusion, mainly related to the end of the movie.

The other night I’ve watched There Will Be Blood, and its end seems somehow unfinished.

There’s is also an unusual match between the period of time of the movie’s action and the music used for the end: the first years of the twentieth century and classical music. I am talking about The Third Movement from Johannes Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77. I must admit that at first I was somehow intrigued by this kind of joint.

I was listening to The Third Movement until it ends, and all of a sudden I realized that the movie must be watched AFTER listening this classical piece of music! It will be viewed in a whole new light!

At the end of the post, you may watch Daniel Day-Lewis winning an Oscar® for “There Will Be Blood”.

As usual, there’s a trailer below (this time below the music in order to stick to my suggestion).
