Thoughts on the movie “In a World. . .”

* It’s surprisingly fun! I wouldn’t’ve guessed that a movie about voice-over artists would be compelling but this one is; half the reviews start this way and they’re right. Friends kept mentioning In a World. . . and I’m glad they did.

* In modern dating among young unattached people aggression wins: when in doubt err on the side of greater aggression. Few movies seem to emphasize this. Like Love, Actually, In a World over-relies on adolescent angst about making a move.

* I don’t see uptalk / babytalk as being as prevalent as it is in the movie. Perhaps I hang out with the wrong crowd?

* Voice itself, regardless of content, conveys tremendous information that I don’t think most people consciously consider.

* The micro-world or niche is an underrated setting for movies and sometimes books.

* Does celebrity affect / infect every field now? Does every field have groupies? Roosh may right that the future of game is fame, however niche.

* In a World. . . is unusually willing to be awkward without resolution. This is not a criticism.

One response

  1. I think I was one of the ones who recommended “In a World” to you. I loved the movie. It helped that I saw In a World at a SAG screening with a woman I was dating who is a sometimes actress and voice over artist. Being a SAG screening, the audience was mostly actors, so the film got a great response. And, as you know from seeing movies with me from the time you were three (a retrospective of Snow White as your first movie theater experience), I often like the trailers better than the feature. In a World . . .
