Yay, a properly great week for cinema for once. Honestly I’ve been thinking on it recently and I think I may have been being a bit stingy on my five star reviews, especially on big budget action joints. I did reviews without ratings for a long time, I think i still prefer that style of writing but there sure do be something to be said for attaching a solid quantifiable opinion on there.
Google seems confused about this film’s title. For the sake of convenience I’m gonna go with the one on my ticket: Scribe. Somewhere else there’s someone believes this film goes by a different name, they call it The Eavesdropper. I’m interested in what these two titles mean, how they assign both action and intent. To transcribe is to be proactive but the action itself carries no inherent moral weight. To eavesdrop is the opposite, you’re doing nothing conceptually it’s a dishonest and bad thing to be doing.
