The Moment Is Gone?
Anita Ekberg, known mainly for her role in La Dolce Vita (1960), wasn't the greatest actress (not bad either) but she was there, in the fountain, like it's some Midsummer Night Dream, looking like an angel. She more than anyone symbolizes "the cinematic moment." A moment in a film, that you can freeze and save, like a time capsule. We can close our eyes and imagine Humphrey Bogart breaking up with Ingrid Bergman there in the airport, Rocky Balboa raising his hands, and even two animated dogs sharing spaghetti with each other in Lady and the Tramp (1955). We remember all these scenes like they're paintings of famous artists and in great detail. There's a feeling that "the cinematic moment" is gradually disappearing since the beginning of the 21st century, for numerous reasons. Do you think "the cinematic moment" era is gone? Discuss here
