Now, Voyager

Bette Davis has just been on telly, I’ve only heard of this, and of that last sentence.
I really did like this film, but I am emotional today. Why is Hollywood so shy of making this type of film nowadays?

  1. I love this movie, and I think Hollywood runs away from real emotion in movies today. Sentiment is easier to portray than real heartbreak and courage, especially when there’s no violence or blood to accompany it.

  2. Yes, there is so much to think about: with its subtelty, economy, and its poetic nature. With the number of things that could happen after the ending.How much more the audience is left with, compared to present day standard fare, can’t be estimated.“Oh, Jerry. Don’t let’s ask for the moon, we have the stars.”How, or should I say, where does an end take place?

  3. Why is Hollywood so shy of making this type of film nowadays?</></>I have not seen this movie before, but I will be on the look out. Hollywood is about the money, nothing else. Think the pussycat dolls. “Don’t you wish your girlfriend was hawt like me?” Where is the talent? What great movie star can we claim right now? It is all about the quick in, quick out, –“All man did you see that head blow up?” Just like that shit 300 does not sound appealing. And when Hollywood attempts to go liberal they miss the mark like in Mystic River. What a crock of crap.
