The 10 Most Original Movies of the 21st Century
Originality in film , as in art, is something that many creators struggle with. Everything is made in this world, there is no possibility to be innovative, this seems to be discouraging for people who want to tell their story, but feel like it's already been told.However for those who are well versed in the craft there is no struggle too big to overcome, because those who understand the mechanics of filmmaking know that things in film don't just happen, they have to happen in an interesting way – it's this little proverb that we find in many film books and that has been the centerpiece for many film theoreticians and historians when it comes to explaining the magic of film.Originality today simply is this, to find things that have always been there, but that have not been used. For film it's this given fact, that something just is, and it's the way we present it and tell it which makes all the difference in the aesthetic pleasures that it brings.
