Seasons’
rovtde Thought-Provoking Entertainment
By Susan Carrison
^ ou may have been among some
ot the more unfortunate who in
the past few weeks viewed the
coming \veekeiuls with a little less
than anticipation. You may have
been among those who decided,
then, to proerptinate a little in-
.stead of working on the impend-
ing papers. Maybe you even took
in a flick. If yon were lucky, or
intelligent, enough to choose
“Blow-Up” or “A Man For All
Seasons,” your time was not wast
ed.
The most outstanding effect of
these movies seemed to be the
moods created. Walking out into a
busy world filled with noise, pass
ing ears, and everyday chat after
seeing either movie probably
shocked you into the realization
that .vou had been enveloped in a
world quite unlike the one in
which you live. How did this oc
cur? How were two hours able to
transport you into another realm?
First, consider t h e material
“Blow-Up” by no means was bas
ed on an earth-shaking oeeurreuee,
though you probabl.v won’t dis
cover a murder being enacted in
ever.v roll of Kodak develojied.
The ke.v to this movie was the pho
tography, the imagination of the
director, and the bare reality. The
acting was good in that the char
acters portrayed were typical,
jiot romanticized in any way,
merel.v shown as they were. M'hy,
tlien, did the movie leave a sense
of unreality? The point .seemed
best captured in the tennis match
a match pla.ved by actors with
no rackets, no balls. A contrast of
the real and the unreal permeated
the movie and the audience in a
mood ending in a question mark.
The brilliance of Sir Thomas
iHore, himself, made “A Man For
All Seasons” a brilliant movie. Al
though one’s emotions were play
ed upon to .such an extent that in
tense hate, admiration, and sorrow
were felt, it should be realized
that the actual i)eople’s charac
ters were re.sponsible for this ef
fect Tlie acting, again, was very
ftoad, but how coidd an actor fail
