Cinematic Paradiso pt 2

{THURSDAY} Aspires to inspire. Grit and musicality will have you rooting for Killa P. The underdog of the summer. (Pattie Cake$) Cast: Danielle McDonald, Bridget Everett Directed by: Geremy Jasper

Pattie Cakes$, Killa. P reverberates an American dream that lingers on the cusp of of fame.  Small town jersey girl, big voice & no opportunity. An unwillingness to resign to archetypes of race and poverty she drops rhymes to kill time. Hopes to inspire before she expires in a film that profoundly echos a story of wanting to be heard, taking care of those you love while being a bad ass bitch.

I’ve been torn down. Defined by others.

If I had listened… I would not be the person I am today. Pattie Cakes$ reignited a fire in me. Burning to blaze while keeping my fidelity. Consistency and character are the seams that hold relationships together. Once those qualities are compromised you have a no chance to move past in the world.

{Friday} Creative & authentic. A oddball coming of age story that looks to understand the traumatic complexities of the world. (Brigsby Bear) Cast: Kyle Mooney, Claire Danes, Mark Hamill Directed by: Dave McCary

Isolated from society. Entertained by his captors. James played by Kyle Mooney grows up with television persona Brigsby Bear that was uniquely created to teach him about life. He has no contact with the world outside of his subterranean home yet is enlighten by Brisgby’s artificial identity. As local authorities save him from his captors he makes contact with the “real” world and seeks to  find closure with the Brigs by making one final episode that will benchmark his relationship as he differentiates reality and produced life.

Things in life may not appear to be what they seem. Regardless of truancy, those images hold value. Bigsby Bear closes the gap between presentation and reality by allowing the protagonists direct the end. In life you may not have the ability to control what people do but you can control your response. Much like James in Brisby Bear I’ve taught myself to take control.
