ALICE UNLOVED and living real in and UNREAL WORLD

 ALICE UNLOVED wil be my re-entry into fiction films... sort of ... since the method i use encompasses my particular set of skills learned, honed and refined over years of living 'real'.

Perhaps 'living real' is a new concept for some but for those of us who have done it most of our lives it's natural. Courage of course is a key element as is living on the edge... the edges of things are often where we learn the most about ourselves which is where our life resides i.e. In ourselves first then the external world after that.

When young and invincible it's easier to live that way but the real test of courage is in how we deal with life as we age simply because so many of us face so many disappointments that we give up .... i have at times joined that group but not for long and not willingly.

It's not complex; I simply see living the creative life as the most perfect life.

Digital caused a flurry and a flourish of major movie making interest ... perhaps too much and too many. So many videos so few ideas... as someone once outlined and I paraphrase.

The vast outpouring didn't make an astounding original flow of amazing ways to make movies with real life content without the mediocre sway of huge studio interference... the happy ending syndrome.

Recently i re-watched FOUR BROTHERS which started out as a rather unique and interesting American feature but ended in a sad display of soup opera results. As it flowed along it became more and more predictably a copy of movies u've seen before several times.

Unfortunately this decline seems to be the 'cater to the lower end' type of holywoody movie too often seen in recent decades.

Some very interesting 'film noir' movies were made in America in the 30's and 40' that are now displayed on youtube free.

I recently watched all the Basil Rathburne Sherlock Holmes movies and much to my surprise since they were made from 1939 to 1946, they were well made and interesting to watch. Certainly they are as good as the more recent Granasa's versions featuring Brett as Sherlock.

Anyway, volume is not always the answer and often the damage done... so many images float around everyone's world and most of it cliche ridden nonsense; so, those old Sherlock's seem worth one's time.

ALICE UNLOVED my new drama about non conformity .... 'so many women fall in love with a pig.'


 Sometimes we falter.... sometimes we succeed... an old Uke adage is 'Life is not a feather'. Also 'Courage isn't easy.' 

 Nostalgia can overcome we elders as we hike along the trail of our memories.

 I got carried away with living life ... what i should have done long ago is creating ....using max skills to document my thoughts and life style using words, pictures and pictures that move and talk.  

 Not sure of how others feel their lives... most i assume are arrogant and silly enough to think the simple dullness of their 'normal' lives was perfect .... then along came C19 and they could show how wonderful they are 'toeing the line' of conformity.

My latest movie isn't a doc. but a drama called ALICE UNLOVED - following an indepent life style Alive believes that she can live/dream her life without love - a very difficult journey for a female since nature gave them an amazing capacity to love so that the species can survive with mother's that deeply care for family even above themselves.... then along comes a pig that changes all that. 'so many women fall in love with a pig.;
