Unknown Gems - The Frame

, , No Comments
This is Cupcake reporting, from the Planet Earth. Cookie is busying with baking real stuff, so I took it upon me to keep our blog busy and readers engaged.

Poetry, politics, fiction, facts, news, commentary, world-cup, movies - I guess there is no dearth of topics to ramble about.

Being an avid fan of the world of celluloid fiction, I guess I must talk about some of the wonderful movies I have watched with my Cookie. Many of these are of-course the popular ones, yet, there are few obscure titles.

Thomas Gray said -

“Full many a gem of purest ray serene
The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear:
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.”

These unseen gems are worth every minute of the time we spent watching movies. May be by talking about these, we will help them not fade into obscurity. And I must admit, there are few movies which went beyond our inter-planetary intellect on first viewing. May be when you watch these, you would be able to help us unravel some of the plot mysteries :)

In this series, we will take up many titles, but today I will talk about a movie known as "The Frame"
It is an unusual story, dwells into quintessential topic if we hold the power to script our own destiny. The story starts slow, but as the pace sets in, you sit there sitting in awe of what is happening on-screen.

The narration, the pace, all picks up and keeps you hooked until the very last.

Director Jamin Winans has crafted yet another intriguing story. He has proven that it does not require mammoth budgets to tell beautifully interesting stories. All you need is "the real story", a good screen-play and a good eye for camera. Budgets do not make movies worth watching, people do by excelling in their prowess's - direction, acting, music, editing and what not!

** Minor Spoiler Alert **
It is very tough to tell anything more about the story without giving it away, yet I must say that the story nearly dwells in the theory of Parallel Universe. It is not shown explicitly, but if you have been a fan of series "Fringe", you will see the drift.

Go watch it for pure cinematic pleasure. And do let us know how do you like it!
