Cult Movies

We each have our own list of favorite movies. These are the movies that touched us something important, and love which are not cooled over the years. And such a list can really tell a lot about a person. Conversation with a stranger You can start with the question “What are you doing?” or “Where did you study?”. But if you want a person to disclose to you all, please ask them to name five favorite movies.

Calling the film, which became for him an object worship, people are not always inclined to justify their preference, but if he still does this, much clearer. My own understanding of the cult film implies ing the following factors: duration impact – impact power – The appeal of repeated viewing of the cult film does not diminish its attractiveness. Many of these fans back again and again throughout life, continuing to find new ideas and food for the mind. Such films can influence a huge audience, expanding its sphere of influence both socially and geographically. Feelings they evoke, are not simple approval, but the passion and even devotion.

Cult films are often exemplars of technical skill creators, often blinding wealth and ties roll calls (from other movies, with a mass or high culture, and even with themselves). Often, this pattern breaks down all the existing genres: a real cult film can become a founder of a new genre, create their own space and time. None of the above components is not only necessary for the birth of the cult, but all possible combinations of both time and lead to this. That’s my opinion. Although I oppose “cult” film with a “commercial success” and “Popular with the critics, these characteristics are not entirely mutually exclusive. Some movies can be a cult and bring more charges (“Apocalypse Now”). Others, despite the big-budget, first are not successful in commercial terms (“Blade Runner”). Others may cause concern to critics, but did not make the cash (for example, “Reds,” Warren Beatty). There are movies that find passionate admirers in the narrow circles. For example, the film “Television Network” has become a cult for journalists and media industry, “Valley of the Dolls” has become a bible transvestites, and “It’s – Spinal Tap” in the whole world knows by heart, almost everyone who ever had related to the music scene. Sometimes a group of trendy film appears especially loyal fans. If you recall the most popular film of all time – “Star Wars” – then in the general mass of his fans we see the kernel especially loyal fans. To illustrate – in the census of population in Australia, about 80000 people in the “religion” indicated “Jedi” or something similar. Suppose it’s just a joke, but it’s certainly something adds to the definition of “cult” film. It makes you protest?
