I’ve always liked the idea of lowlights. If you’ve ever watched a movie starring Michael Douglas, you know what I mean. He would look at a lowlight and think to himself, “Oh, that was a little too much!” This is a great way to break up the dark scenes, as it gives us a better sense of what that scene was.
This is a good example of this. The idea of a lowlight is a great way to break up a scene that might be a bit boring, but then it also gives us a great sense of what was going on. This is the same idea, but we see it with a light that’s too bright, and we really get a chance to understand the mood of the scene. It’s like looking at a sunset.
It’s a great way to break up boring scenes too, but when we do that, we also sometimes forget that we’re in a scene. We need to remember that we’re in a scene. This is a great example of this. We’ve all seen movies where someone is sitting in a dark room and the lights suddenly come on, but they never notice the light coming on because they’re too busy watching the movie.
Its like that. In our own case, we’re sitting in black in a dark room, and a light suddenly comes on that we don’t see.
This is a great exercise to do on a dark night at home. Imagine that youve been sitting in a dark room and youre looking at the door. All of a sudden, you notice that the door is opening. You look back at the door and say, “Oh, I wonder what that was for.” Or maybe you say, “Oh, I wonder what that was for.
It could be something as simple as a flicker of light in the darkness that makes you say, “Oh, I wonder what that was for.” This is the same thing with lowlights. You see a room that you are interested in and have a desire to go into. Then you notice that its dark and you wonder, “Oh, I wonder what that was for.” This is one of those “aha” moments that is so often missed.
I’ve been to the theater countless times and I’ve never seen a lowlight. But I thought it was a bit odd when I first went to see a new Batman movie that I could see a light for a few seconds and then it faded away.
It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of a great performance and forget to appreciate the subtleties on the art. The same goes for movies. We are constantly bombarded with great action scenes, but oftentimes the beauty of the moment eludes us. The problem is that what we see is only fleeting because, like most things, we aren’t paying attention to it.
There are two ways to go about it. The first is to take your time, really look at the action, and really savor it. The second is to get ready to go back to reality. In the case of the Batman movie, the scene where Bruce Wayne is walking down the street in his new outfit and then suddenly the lights go out, you realize that it wasn’t just a moment of pure entertainment, but a moment that was scripted to happen.
I think what I like about the Batman movie is that it shows the difference between “action” and “realism.” The Batman movie is not about being Batman, he is Bruce Wayne, and it’s clear that he is going to “out-Batman” his own character. But that is not the movie that he is in… it’s the movie that he is not in.
