Philosophy In Film Blog
Philosophy seeks to address some of the most pressing questions in the fields of metaphysics, ethics, logic, mathematics, and aesthetics, among others. It is a subject of study that is both far-reaching and vitally important for our society. We turn to philosophy to contemplate our existence, purpose, and methods and practices for conducting our daily lives. Philosophy is also particularly applicable to film, as film can operate as a reflection or reproduction of humanity, or a visual story crafted with the intention of addressing philosophical questions. Philosophical theory and film theory are also intrinsically linked, as they both assess their respective subjects at the most fundamental levels. Philosophy in Film was created to merge these two subjects, and apply philosophical theories and methodology to the study and interpretation of individual films, directors, genres, film viewership, and the history of film production.
Review: Rings (2017) ★½
2018-08-03 23:07
A spooky atmosphere goes a long way in elevating works of horror above the muck and mire of indie B-movie shlock. Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979) and John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982… Read More
Review: Son Of Rambow (2007) ★★
2018-07-24 19:12
Being wholesome does not automatically make a work of fiction praiseworthy; in fact, it generally belies any sense of ambiguity or style. The plots are more likely to be sterile, leaning on… Read More
Review: The Babadook (2014) ★★★★
2018-07-20 21:05
No matter how one feels about parenting or the decision to have children, it is abundantly clear that the burden of child-rearing can be an absolute nightmare. Despite what Hollywood general… Read More
Review: A Ghost Story (2017) ★★★½
2018-07-01 17:56
I went into A Ghost Story expecting something very different (namely something a bit more horrific), so in that sense the film was very disappointing. A Ghost Story is in no way a horror fil… Read More
Review: I, Tonya (2017) ★★★
2018-06-27 01:21
There is something inherently cheap about biographical dramas about contemporary figures, particularly figures who are still living. If I watch Marie Antoinette (2006), I may feel that there… Read More
2018-06-18 22:17
I will fully admit that I give horror films the benefit of the doubt more often than I should. The genre is comprised of an inordinate number of derivative, formulaic B-movies, and yet we co… Read More
Review: Gigante (2009) ★★★½
2018-03-13 13:27
Many Hollywood films are guilty of exaggerating mundane, everyday events; every flirting glance is meaningful, every moment of serendipity is life-changing, and every relationship is built f… Read More
Review: After The Dark (2013) ★½
2018-03-11 12:26
John Huddles has attempted to bring philosophy to life with After the Dark, and not in the way that filmmakers typically do so. Much like a philosophy professor, he wants spectators to engag… Read More
Review: What We Become (2016) ★★½
2018-03-09 04:52
Apparently, filmmakers are not concerned with showing the best and brightest humanity has to offer during a zombie apocalypse; instead, we are left only with protagonists who make incredibly… Read More
Review: Baskin (2015) ★★★
2018-03-07 07:17
There is a fine line between what academics and horror aficionados would deem “high-art” horror (though many will claim that no such thing exists) and your everyday, garden-varie… Read More
