I’ve been watching a lot of memorable scenes from movies lately. Scenes that I think we’re very well directed and executed. They range from scenes in comedies like Kareem Abdul Jabar’s cameo in Airplane! or the business card scene from American Psycho. They are types of scenes I believe I don’t see anymore, things that engineered for entertainment and recollection— yet they don’t achieve this by being provocative, and rather maintain so by wonderful performances of writing and directing.
I’ve been wanting to see a good scene for a while now, and I’ve hoped that aspect of cinema will return presently.
