    A Filmmaker's Guide to the Best Performances: Heath Ledger

    A Filmmaker's Guide to the Best Performances: Heath Ledger

    Heath Ledger was one of the most promising actors of the early 21st century with a ton of roles under his belt before his untimely death at the age of 28. Born and raised in Australia, he was working on TV shows there before breaking into his film roles in the late 90s. He worked on films in which he thought he wouldn't be typecast. Fearing the pressures of gaining more experience in different types of roles, Ledger also didn't like the celebrity lifestyle, often citing it as some sort of curse to followed around by the press everywhere he went. This fear was only exemplified with the birth of his daughter in 2005.

    Isolation

    Isolation

    I isolate myself and most people are fully aware of that. I do not go outside, I work one day a week and make sure I speak to nobody, I go to the supermarket with a family member to make sure nobody asks me a question or approaches me, I do not have friends or a partner and have never been romantically involved with anyone and nor have I ever been away with friends on any occasion. I do not text people, phone people, have friends to talk to, have family members to talk to (mostly because I don't want to talk to them) and I don't leave the house alone at all for any reason. As an introduction, I think this was alright for me setting you up for how much I actually isolate myself and so, if you're reading this then consider yourself lucky - you're getting access that other people have failed to get all their lives. Let's have a bit of background then...

    20 Books of 2020 (Part 2)

    20 Books of 2020 (Part 2)

    I have been up on my usual reading antics and I can tell you that part 2, numbers 21-40 is finished and we will be going through them just as we went through part 1 here: https://vocal.media/geeks/my-first-20-books-of-2020. So without me explaining too much I just want to say how I'm doing it 20 by 20 instead of shoving it all on at the end of the year and it adding up to 400 or something stupid like that and so here we are. You may see some surprises and you may not, but I'm trying to read wider into cultures now, so hopefully it's working. If you want to know more about my reading antics then follow my Instagram: @anniethebritindian. Also, if you could write me a message that you've seen the articles and that's why you're following that would be great.

    A Filmmaker's Review: "The Stepfather" (2009)

    A Filmmaker's Review: "The Stepfather" (2009)

    This is the worst rating I have given a movie so far and I'm gonna tell you why. When I think a film is absolutely terrible I normally watch it one more time at a different time and place in order to see whether it was me thinking it was awful or maybe I was just not in the mood for that movie. Well, I watched this three times just to make sure and no, it's just a god awful movie. Here's a bit of the history of me and this movie...

    A Filmmaker's Review: "Two Popes" (2019)

    A Filmmaker's Review: "Two Popes" (2019)

    Now let's start with a new film instead of ones I have seen countless times before. I don't know what possessed me to see this film but I was always interested in it from the moment I knew what it was about. Based on a very recent event (the abdication of Benedict XVI) - it takes into account all the things that went wrong during his reign as the head of the church. From someone who remembers the death of John Paul II, there is a lot to be said about the decline and fall of the modern Catholic Church. But what this film focuses on is the way in which Benedict XVI abdicated and the man who took his place - Pope Francis, the current Pope.
