Hope you’re all doing well!
A film which was released three years ago has been televised recently many times – Now You See Me.
This is a film about 4 magicians (The Four Hoursemen – ironically one of which is a woman), who are ridiculously skilled in each of their magical disciplines of mastering the art of perception. They are sort of a Robin Hood in the sense of they steal from the corrupt and rich and give to their audience members.
Two quotes stood out for me in this film – “the closer you think you are, the less you’ll actually see” and “the more you look, the less you’ll see”
I’m not sure if this was what they were aiming at but what I’ve gathered from it is that they’re saying not to over think things, something which we’re all guilty for, especially moi!
Take a step back, look from the outside in, you’ll see more from a distance as you’ll get a perspective rather than getting closer and seeing what you want to see or what others want you to see.
I loved this film so much because of how clever it is and also how relevant it is to everyday life.
