Mahler Wrap Party or we are going to live forever!!!
MAHLER PART 10
MAHLER PART 11
As blogging about Ken Russell's "Mahler" comes to close for me, a formal feeling comes. There were radical upheavals in the world this past month, so much so that Mahler at times seemed like a world I longed to be in. Not as a character but simply inside the films colours and locations. The ending was beautiful. Unlike many, the boy on the train platform and the older man watching him with longing was the one highlight I did not care for. I'm not sure why. Perhaps there was too much humanity in it and as a paranoid parent I read "child abduction" into something completely charming. Just goes to show what the modern world can do to even the happiest person...
