There is no such thing as coincidence, just the illusion of coincidence itself.
There – there it is, again. Every time I thought I had things under control, I am reminded of it.
Coincidence. Such a lovely word, this – but how it really works, no one knows for sure.
As usual, the green code fans have all jumped into this movie like ducks to water, and seemed to be over-analysing it, intensely scrutinising it as though from under a microscope – just like they did to the trilogy.
Then again, green code was often full of puzzle pieces, taunting us, mocking us, just within reach.
Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, but heck – does that mean we always have to look ten feet deeper than the rabbit hole itself?
I reluctantly walked away after the credits rolled, suitably impressed – well, the feeling was somewhat similar to that of my first viewing of green code, seven years ago (!!) – the conspiracies, the secrets, the cover-ups; it made me question every thing in existence – although not to a point where I would wonder why the sky is blue.
In any case, it did make me think.
Unfortunately, that was just it, and nothing more – so you can be assured that I will not be spouting one-liners containing words that all start with the 22nd letter of the alphabet.
Still, it does merit a second viewing, perhaps.
Ah, well. So close, yet so far. After all, some of the scenes do seem reminiscent to green code.
But that would be the power of an idea – it lives on, for years, reaches beyond boundaries, until the right person comes along and puts it all into play. And he is right – ideas are bulletproof.
Yet, we are all part of the cast; we are the actors. Masks? Cowards? Unrepresentation? Anonymity? You, me, and everybody?
All of us are in this. We just do not know who is the charming lead actor, who is the prima donna, who are are the extra, well, extras. What role do you want to play?
If our own government was responsible for the deaths of a hundred thousand people… would you really want to know?
Would you, really?
(Gah, you subtitles people! It is 5th of November, not 15th of November!)
