she is the eccentric wife of bus driver Adam Driver who writes poetry as a hobby... She was good in it as was Driver...Directed by Jim Jarmusch it streams on Prime currently....
The bus driving seemed to support him. It was about trying to be creative in the arts, I thought. It is a bit slow as it unfolds largely in his head and poetry.
Is it good?
In the end, I did enjoy it. Been on a binge of Adam Driver films... Haven't seen you over on IC in a while... It's not as fun as Outside used to be sure. I miss all the old gang from there.. ... Hope you and your family are doing well...
Ah... yes... those old times... :)
Some great memories...
It's like they're forced to develop a story.
They demand a different mind set from the viewer. Just as a novel and a poem make different demands on a reader, so do more visual, cerebral films. Poems take some effort (the good ones) to disentangle, the meaning isn't obvious: that would defeat the purpose of non-declarative discourse.
The films of Tarkovski and Tarr, of Antonioni and Bi Gan make similar demands upon the viewer; he must be an active, not passive, participant.
It's certainly not for everyone---it's a completely different experience that takes time to appreciate.
