LUDWIG II. at the movies
“Few motion picture films succeed in bringing an audience to the theaters, starting with the trailer and the movie reviews”
Interesting, it has to do with how well today’s new media is being managed and served, as much as with the product itself.
Feuilleton got point.
“LUDWIG II does not stand a chance.”
Bert Rebhandl writes a review of the film by Peter Sehr and Marie Noelle here and makes his readers want to go and see the movie at the theaters.
The reason for me to go watch a movie at the theater, isn’t the film shown but the company I aim to invite for visiting the theater. With the daughters, I like to go watch major releases, that are entertaining and the content should offer transfomation in education as a subject. I want them to have no respect for institutions.
Other than that, I educate myself of the state of things with Apple movie trailers like other people watch the news.
Recently, in consequence of a German TV series Borgen, brilliant Danish crime series, the US series Prison Break, I felt to be better and more cultivated entertained by tv series than by motion pictures.
Motion picture films hardly have a chance.
I would have like to imagine Ludwig II, as an apparently conventional costume film with a difference, brutally, populistic insights, as was the case with the apparently conventional western „Django unchained‟ by Quentin Tarantino.
I like to hold the German press economically and culturally responsible, for helping German lighthouses, cast their light and help focus and sharpen the peoples attention on matters of their own in midst of a European and global context. Learning and sharing are the dominant themes.
Information transfer is the subject
