Changeling: The Times in 1928

Changeling, based on true events, is one of the most provocative movies liberated on-screen. The movie begins as a story of a single mother, bound by her lonesome life, caring for her little boy and providing for her home. There is no defined direction to this movie as the story becomes more than just about the mother and her missing child: it transforms into a tragedy of struggle, and frustration.

There is a war between the powerful and powerless that’s taking course in the movie. To watch this movie is to live forever in the dark. I couldn’t understand the why, but I was looking for the where. This movie conveys fortunate when unfortunate is all it’s got. It represents life when death is all around. It gives hope when disappointment is all that’s felt. And I feel miserable when I wish I had something less miserable to focus on. Changeling is based on a true story and it’s heartbreaking as it is courageous. It is frustrating as it is foreseeable. The impact of the press was given much importance in the script of the movie, as it was years ago in reality. To read was to believe. That was the wave of influence that newspapers had on their readers.changeline-2
Even though the scenes in the movie were easy to grasp, there was something missing that needed to be found. This movie confused me into believing the hard truth but only for something that is so easy to understand. The characters played in this movie are justified and their motives plausible. The way each person is carefully given personality makes Changeling well illustrated. There is no time-killing pointlessness in the movie and the story felt as real as it could be. The expectations that were dictated by the plot seemed well-defined by the actors, especially Jason Harner (as Gordon), who’s acting was completely crazy and up-to-the-par of the movie. As much as I love Angeline Jolie (as Christine) and John Malkovich (as Reverend Gustav), they both completely surpassed their designated scripts as opposing to the way this movie was made out to be seen. The actors fit well with the kind of cinematography the director wanted to accomplish.
The way Changeling was staged, with women given utmost fashion and cultural responsibility, while men given more of a formal responsibility made me feel like this movie knows what it’s up against: an era at the cusp of an evolution. The story was made out to be very queer and hysterical- emotionally and foreseeable- fundamentally.
Changeling is not changed but the growth of mentality. I wished that silent struggle would come to an end, but it never did. Changeling is the fight between love and hope; between what is lost and why. Changeling characterizes misery the way ice melts and fire burns; it’s inevitable. I’ve lived in this movie and after it. And in the end, the light in the darkness was the darkness itself.
Changeling changed the change by justifying truth when lie was all they’d got. It showed the sufferings are not felt, they’re understood and that is what makes the soul go mad.

Review On HSBCs Campaign -Lift- from Grey London

This day and age, the idea of establishing and growing a business has inspired people through marketing tools such as articles, infographics, podcasts and videos. Since the heroics of the internet, people have adopted new and creative ways to encourage almost everyone to stand up and make a point in their lives to change, grow and learn.

Enlivening the spirit of entrepreneurship has and will be ignited in many still but the act of encouraging professionalism and relationships between those who you work with, can only be fired up  by advertisements. And we, human to human, lead such expeditions and gain so much without even realizing the importance of it.

This is how HSBC’s campaign, Lift, has become one of the most striking advertisements this year.

There was portrayal of anticipation in the introduction bit of the video, when the founder of Cadours Industries, walked in his new corporate building to attend to the lift to reach upon his office, on the sixth floor.  That take was the perfect giveaway of how new business startups emerge from the bottom-most floor to the paramount canvas of the building; from close quarters and cabins and a few employers to a much more defined organization; and how each level is as significant as the next and as symbiotic as the last. Then comes the most interesting and creative part of the video, the LIFT, which was aptly conveyed through the actors’ postures, attitude, fashion, make-up and their expressions. It felt as if that man’s entire business life, from being a fresh businessman to the cusp of his successfulness towards the end, was drafted in that lift with those people with whom his relationship was attached to. And along with that commotion, there was the destination deliverance from the sixth floor of the building to the forty sixth floor, when last seen, was absolutely marketed with deft and accuracy.

There is no dialogue or narration scripted in this movie and so the direction of it is aimed at almost every precise emotion that was present in that box. This style of narration is almost left incomplete in the sense of its sheer marketing, but, from the minim note of storytelling: it’s a hit!
