Re: [movies-620] For Those Who Saw GREAT BEAUTY

I agree with you on Jep breaking into reality feeling the loss - not feeling  like it was so much for the son in the casket or that it was maybe his son but just that he stepped out of his script for a bit feeling the weight of the coffin maybe & looking at the real faces with real sadness.
 
Churches like to keep their followers confused & ignorant (I think) & locked into ceremony that means nothing anymore except tradition. My dad was a preacher so I always react to organized religion in this way - probably more personalized for me than most watchers I admit! hahhh  Empty rhetoric for me all memorized & robotic. Yeah- was he a chef or a priest!!
 
I'm going to read more & try to see it again while it's still here.  Thanks for the feedback Rosemary!  Debi

Hi Tom and Debi, thanks for your comments re GREAT BEAUTY.   Tom, good question re his crying at the funeral  -- it felt like he was finally allowing himself to admit how sad he was in life,  probably regret about not having children -- earlier in the film he said the line about "being able to have children" when told that his ex-lover had died and that her husband couldn't have children  -- it was such a great moment because he was moving from his phony life "planning what to say at the funeral"  to a moment of really being at the funeral in a real genuine way.
 
Debi, enjoyed your comments and thought the film did a great job of conveying how confusing the catholic church has been for its followers -- on one hand the tradition and its roots on the other hand all Jeb could get from the cardinal was recipes on how to cook rabbit  -- some very interesting perspectives  --

Saw this one with Chip et. al. a few days ago-probably the longest post movie discussion, ever.  My only question was "Jep's" great show of emotion when he was a pall bearer for his friend's son who committed suicide.  Anything going on there-an unacknowledged offspring from a long time ago dalliance?  That was the first thing I thought but our group booed me down...It was no always an easy movie to follow-for me anyways.  Enjoyed it very much because there was so much going on...Tom

Wow, wow, wow ... what a lavish and beautiful film filled with some really interesting characters & faces.  I loved the narcissism of having ones picture taken daily and then posted on massive walls and so loved how Jep (was that his name?)  is so moved as he watches an entire life pass by him ... just like his.   Really good stuff and oh my gosh the Mother "Theresa" character ... its about roots!!!!    So wish I had seen this with the group and open to hearing your comments ... hope you enjoyed as much as I did.     Thanks for sharing,    Rosemary
