Conspiracies are controversial and entertaining.
It is true that for psychologically reason, sometimes, we
fail to understand things as they truly are. Especially significant things such as Diana's
death, and the Apollo project. People just can't understand how those things can be. Since Diana
was so charming and famous, how could she die if she was not murdered? Conspiracies is a form of
over-explanation because we can't believe sometimes things happen accidentally, which happens a
lot in film reviews. Filmmaking is a business involving high risk and uncertainty. Some
brilliant acting you see in the final picture might not be planned out in the first place. The
well-known example would be the cat in Godfather Part I. At the opening scene of Godfather,
Marlon Brando is petting a white furry cat, which show a soft side behind the powerful notorious
Godfather Vito Corleone. People celebrate how smart and insightful director Francis Ford Coppola
was. However, the reality is that the cat is never planned. The crew found the cat on the set
and Coppola just have Brando holds it in the scene.
You know it is not real but you still love it (Shipping/
Political Fan Fic)
I never understand why people are so crazy about shipping.
What I see the word might be different from the article. Internet people love expressing their
passionate approval of celebrities' relationship. Such an approval acts like an approval of
themselves, telling them you are able to impose control, even a tiny amount of it, in a chaotic
world. However, to me such a passion of approval is useless, if you cannot tell whether is true
or not. In the case of internet, you know it is not real because managing companies control it.
I am fully aware that lot of people enjoy shipping. To me, The reason that I fail to experience
such a enjoy is that I never value things that don't contribute my works and my life
substantially. If I have to get involved with it, I should be the creator not the enjoyer. That
also applies to my opinion towards fan fiction.
For disclaimer, I have no problem with people writing and
reading Fan Fiction. If they found it a nice way to entertain themselves, good for them. One
thing for sue is that I don't admire them. I want to be the official art creator. I won't create
any art that is deemed unofficial. Fan fiction is never official since there are so many
versions of them. People write them mostly to entertain themselves and fans for different
purposes, some above-table and some under-table like porn. I believe in artist role as a guide.
There is a reason why artist tells the story in this way not the others. People should respect
the original official version of an art, even though they don't like it. I imagine that there
might be fan fictions changing the ending of Roman Polanski's Chinatown because some people
cannot stand a mainstream Hollywood-production film can end in such a tragic way. Polanski had
just been through serious traumas: his young pregnant wife Sharon Tate was killed by the Manson
Family, so Polanski made a choice for the ending of Chinatown to portray the dark, greedy side
of humanity: innocent people get killed, the bad guys get away, and the good righteous guys feel
helpless. Audience can disagree with the ending but you cannot disrespect it.
