It's about time
on 26 September 2016
“We should never commit the sin of losing track of time!” implores Tom Hanks near the start of this classic movie. The contrast between his methodical business acumen and his Russian counterparts is made clear, even the Texas sunshine contrasts with Moscow snow.
And so it is when removed from the world of exact and exacting time to the timeless shores of a tiny island devoid of human contact. Fascinating to see that even after his prolonged stay, his escape depends on calculation. On time computed.
The crash scene is a stunning piece of cinema that I witnessed on ten foot projection screen: when he crawls towards the camera on the shore I still think he is going to speak to me! Elsewhere the high def. Blu ray of his self dentistry really does put you there. In a cave in pain. Coconuts dropping on different speakers.
I have watched it many times, sometimes I stop at the point he raises his hand. You’ll see if you have not already seen this movie. In my top thirteen. I never turn my back on time. Like me the title at the start is two words, one appears then the second just to underline what it means in the end.
