It has always amused me that someone could label art as bad, good, poor, awful, laughable, lame, abysmal, horrible, or any other adjective of the day, as if it is test score. To me, art is subjective, and that is what I have always cherished it for. I believe it should be that way for everyone. I never call a movie awful. I never call a song horrible. I never call a painting lame. Because it isn't up to me. It is up to the individual viewing it. What I consider a classic movie, many would laugh at me for. Our opinions are different. You, me, everyone. That is what makes us unique. That is what makes us interesting. Otherwise we become the sheep that much of the world is becoming now.
That being said, there are many reasons I like this film. First of all, I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity of playing one of the of story's characters. It allowed me to be around a fantastic group of people, who all cared very much for each other and the project they were working on. It allowed me to connect with some talented and hard-working artists, such as Gia Skova. I have a very high respect for anyone who makes a feature and is involved with it every step of the way. Not many of us can say that, including myself. Not many people understand the amount of work involved and the sacrifices one must make to get it done. For these reasons, I feel honored to have been give the chance to work with Gia. She has taught me a lot.
In my opinion, the acting in The Serpent is solid. Yes, it is a biased opinion. So be it. The cinematography is beautiful. Very well done. Great editing. The crew was all around fantastic to work with and everyone involved worked their hardest to put out the best product possible with the budget that they had to work with.
We are all growing as people and artists. That is where I find the fun. In the journey itself. My goal is to enjoy the ride and improve myself every step of the way. I don't judge end results, I simply include them in my ride.
See the movie for yourself and then move onto the next adventure in your life. Wherever your journey take you, find the positivity in everything you see and do.
