How does a movie differ from real life? And why does present life seem like a movie?


All Writings, Blog, Individual, Observations, Society

Art follows life, or does life follow art?  This question seems nowhere more relevant than in the case of movies.  Movies are the depiction of life.  The characters in some cases are so relatable, that people have seen themselves on the movie screen.  They learn lessons, find out their own mistakes, and understand more about […]
