Deconstructing Cinema – One Scene At A Time

Deconstructing Cinema – One Scene At A Time

By Patrick Samuel • August 26th, 2011

Each week we take one scene from a movie and “deconstruct” it to reveal what kind of an impact they’ve had personally, physician historically, cure culturally, and what they had to say about the human condition.

If you haven’t seen the movies yet please be advised these features contain many spoilers as we actually explore the essence of the films. So please do not expect reviews or ratings; quite often these films have experienced a controversial reception, and our “deconstructions” are more about the film’s impact than its perceived quality in general.

Patrick Samuel

The founder of Static Mass Emporium and one of its Editors in Chief is an emerging artist with a philosophy degree, working primarily with pastels and graphite pencils, but he also enjoys experimenting with water colours, acrylics, glass and oil paints.

Being on the autistic spectrum with Asperger’s Syndrome, he is stimulated by bold, contrasting colours, intricate details, multiple textures, and varying shades of light and dark. Patrick's work extends to sound and video, and when not drawing or painting, he can be found working on projects he shares online with his followers.

Patrick returned to drawing and painting after a prolonged break in December 2016 as part of his daily art therapy, and is now making the transition to being a full-time artist. As a spokesperson for autism awareness, he also gives talks and presentations on the benefits of creative therapy.

Static Mass is where he lives his passion for film and writing about it. A fan of film classics, documentaries and science fiction, Patrick prefers films with an impeccable way of storytelling that reflect on the human condition.
