I was in a cerebral state last night and decided on a new way of picking a movie. I closed my eyes, scrolled for a while, back and forth, then clicked. Shadow in the Cloud came out. I had no idea what to expect. And I liked it like that. It’s a new way of finding a film for me….without my pre-conceived judgements clouding me. I’ll give it ten minutes and if it holds my attention, I’m off. I wasn’t disappointed with this one, despite the low reviews I found afterwards. You’ll love it or you’ll hate it. This is now a cult status film for me about feminism and female strength in the male dominated world of 1943. I loved being constantly surpirsed because I hadn’t seen the trailer. I couldn’t believe where the film went. It just kept getting better and better. Definitely Twilight Zone material. Chlöe Grace Moretz was a total badass and a great actor.
The soundtrack, by Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper, is a beautiful, synthy, 80s style offering and I’m totally and completely in love with it.
So this is my new way of doing films. Exciting. Who knows where it’s going to take me.
