Ep 138: “Notting Hill”

February 16, 2021

We enter the blue door in “Notting Hill” and discuss:

  • cinematography, how you can see this is a drama and not a comedy;
  • acting, Julia Roberts’ performance;
  • writing & Story, the genius of exposition as a game, the Baader–Meinhof phenomenon;
  • music, and how they nearly ruined the ending and why I wish I could edit this movie;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t. – Marilyn Monroe
