Movies and Art


During the times we are living in, the search for originality has been transformed among artist in a real mass movement, which is common and conventional, that is exactly the same as no-originality.

Passion can be thought as the state of the mind when it is powerfully acted upon and influenced by something external to itself; the state of any particular faculty which, under such conditions, becomes extremely sensitive or uncontrollably excited; It involves emotions, sometimes irrationality and usually an extreme desire.

Movies are an art form; Nevertheless a vast amount of people call Hollywood a movie factory.
This is because movies are being made with formulas that are repeated tons of times, those repetitions include the way scripts are written, the angle cameras are positioned in each scene, the kind of clothes actors use, etc. Given the way people work in these movies they are usually not very interested neither passionate about their jobs; therefore they start working in an automatic way, without getting involved.

It is hard to understand how is it that they believe and make believe that they produce "Art", when they work with even less passion that the one a factory worker has for wrapping raw hamburgers.
