Balanced Living 1.2


It’s Oscar time in Los Angeles. It’s the time when all of the most successful movies of the last year, are up for the industries most sought after awards. 

Every year there are films that challenge the way we think about life and society.  And there are films that move us, inspire us, and provide support for our lifestyles.  It is a time to look over what film has given us. 

And film, I must say, is a very powerful medium.  Like reading a book, the newspaper, an essay or a short story, film is important.  It’s important, because like Brokeback Mountain, film can bring forth some of the most monumental and global changes in social acceptance. 

It provides two of the many outlets necessary in our lives to maintaining balance; entertainment and communication.  The others, in my opinion, are how we choose to eat, drink, exercise, work, and play.  And there may be more.

This Sunday is also my good friend’s birthday.  So, like many other Angelinos, I will be joining an Oscar Party, and celebrating a birthday too.  And, I can guarantee you there will be dessert.  Not the kind that makes you fall asleep while listening to movie star’s acceptance speeches, rather, the kind with alternative sweeteners.  Of course, I mean our sweets at Mäni’s, where else could I go?

So, as we converse about the best films of last year, their social impact, and bring clarity to the screen, we consciously or unconsciously, are exercising some of our most important balancing acts. 

  1. Film is considered to be an important art form, a source of popular entertainment and a powerful method for educating or indoctrinating citizens. The visual elements of cinema give motion pictures a universal power of communication. Some films have become popular worldwide attractions by using dubbing or subtitles that translate the dialogue into the language of the viewer.
