Cineforum “NEXT – Il prossimo passo”

Cineforum “NEXT – Il prossimo passo”

Finito il BlogTour (complimenti al vincitore), vi ripropongo il cineforum proposto per il blog Il salotto del Gatto Libraio, che ringrazio di cuore per l’ospitalità.

Da NEXT – Il prossimo passo:

Ada attirò l’attenzione di Matteo su un annuncio della HakunaMatata: “Grandi pellicole per non dimenticare”.

La pagina web riproduceva un codice QR per scaricare l’agenda completa della manifestazione. Il codice a barre bidimensionale, creato nel 1994 per tracciare i pezzi nelle fabbriche della Toyota, si era rapidamente diffuso per evitare il noioso inserimento di dati tramite le piccole tastiere dei cellulari. Si trovavano ormai dappertutto: pagine web, giornali, biglietti da visita, magliette, prodotti industriali. Un veicolo d’informazioni resistente agli urti, allo sporco, leggibile da tutte le direzioni e meno invasivo delle etichette RFID e dei codici a barre.

Ada interpretò il codice e lo schermo si popolò di una lista di film e citazioni.

Come i protagonisti di NEXT – Il prossimo passo, anche voi prendetevi una piacevole interruzione con i film selezionati e le citazioni scelte.

But on Christmas Eve, George's Uncle Billy loses the business's $8,000 while intending to deposit it in the bank. Potter finds the misplaced money and hides it from Billy. When the bank examiner discovers the shortage later that night, George realizes that he will be held responsible and sent to jail and the company will collapse, finally allowing Potter to take over the town. Thinking of his wife, their young children, and others he loves will be better off with him dead, he contemplates suicide. But the prayers of his loved ones result in a gentle angel named Clarence coming to earth to help George, with the promise of earning his wings. He shows George what things would have been like if he had never been born. In a nightmarish vision in which the Potter-controlled town is sunk in sex and sin, those George loves are either dead, ruined, or miserable.

After graduation, she aspires to work in the agency's Behavioral Science Unit under the leadership of Jack Crawford. While she is still a trainee, Crawford does ask her to question Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist imprisoned thus far for eight years in maximum security isolation for being a serial killer, he who cannibalized his victims. Clarice is able to figure out the assignment is to pick Lecter's brains to help them solve another serial murder case, that of someone coined by the media as Buffalo Bill who has so far killed five victims, all located in the eastern US, all young women who are slightly overweight especially around the hips, all who were drowned in natural bodies of water, and all who were stripped of large swaths of skin. She also figures that Crawford chose her as a woman to be able to trigger some emotional response from Lecter. After speaking to Lecter for the first time, she realizes that everything with him will be a psychological game with her having often to read between the very cryptic lines he provides. She has to decide how much she will play along as his request in return for talking to him is to expose herself emotionally to him. The case takes more dire turns when a sixth victim is discovered, this one from who they are able to retrieve a key piece of evidence if Lecter is being forthright as to its meaning. A potential seventh victim is high profile Catherine Martin, the daughter of Senator Ruth Martin, which places greater scrutiny on the case as they search for a hopefully still alive Catherine. Who may factor into what happens is Dr. Frederick Chilton, the warden at the prison, he an opportunist who sees the higher profile with Catherine, meaning a higher profile for himself if he can insert himself successfully into the proceedings.
