Hi everyone! I just got the feeling the urge to write! The muse has taken hold! CinemaD is my pet project at the moment, and even though I am really just beginning my journey, I wanted to take a few minutes to say hello.
I was thinking of beginning to watch old movies that I have never seen. It wasn’t until a college class in the history of cinema that I found myself fascinated by them! So, one of the things I was thinking about was to write about my reactions to movies after I watch them.
Last night I watched “Little Big Man” with a VERY young Dustin Hoffman. I couldn’t decide if it was primarily a drama or a comedy. But, it starts (and ends) with a very OLD character – over 110 years old – recounting his growing up and coming of age. Dustin Hoffman plays the title character, having been given the name “Little Big Man” by a Native American chief whose tribe raises him after his family has been destroyed by the Pawnee (I think it is the Pawnee).
Then, it goes between funny and touching for the rest of the movie. It’s worth watching if you ever have a hankering to see Dustin Hoffman in his early roles. I cannot possibly cover all the aspects of the movie in a simple post, but check out the trailer below. One of the best films ever.
