#NotesonBlindness is one of those rare documentaries that show a painful story peacefully. Professor John M Hull talks about Blindness, and how he never accepted until he could conclude that it was a gift. He describes the indescribable and the actors have lip synced to his recordings with perfection to give the audience a glimpse of his life. #Breathtaking #Inspiring #Peaceful

🎬NOTES ON BLINDNESS (2016) 📽
Directors: James Spinney, Peter Middleton
Starring: Dan Renton Skinner, Simone Kirby
How often you come across a movie (docudrama, in this case) which leaves you dumbfounded with all its beauty and poetry? Notes On Blindness belongs to that set of rare movies that stays with the viewers long, long after the viewing. The story is based on John M. Hull, an author and a theology professor, who suffers blindness and thus starts recording audio tapes as his diary describing his journey into blindness. The actors have only lip-synced to the original tapes, domestic recordings, interviews by Hull and his family. This radically blurs the line between drama and documentary. We are brought into the world of John Hull and the insight given of a mind that knows blindnesss is something we don't watch usually. We are brought closer to the objects producing sound so as to get into the skin of Hull. The voiceovers, the beauty of nature shown through blurred visions and more through sounds of birds chirping, leaves  rattling, will let you feel Hull's joy. How the initial pain, worry, and frustration transforms into beauty, bliss, profoundness, is the journey here. As Hull describes it by the end, his blindness is a gift he didn't want, but it surely is a gift. 
Not everyone may like this movie, because it's slow, but that's what makes it perfect. At times, I felt as if I was watching a Terrence Malick movie. Each and every shot of the movie is pure art. If I have to describe the movie in one word, I would only say: poetic. 
Movie Junkie's rating: 10/10

I don't have a set TBR for this month, but I would be happy to read these two books. And then I will probably read some fantasy, because you can never go wrong with fantasy. 💚

Picked up this book about a man who documented himself going blind. I really want to read it but I'm a bit scared. As someone who is also slowly going blind, I know this will bring all the feels 😨 This one might go to the bottom of the TBR pile until I feel ready 🙈
