I loved the many Bohemian Rhapsody movie reviews I’ve read from my WordPress community! I haven’t written any movie reviews until… now! 😉
The following are my notes, written from that emotionally charged place (the goal of all filmmakers–to get you in touch with your emotions), after leaving the theater yesterday:
Immediately after leaving the theater, the raw emotion of the story we’d just seen hit me. I need some time…
Just beautiful! Really. Go see it! 😭❤️🦋🌀
20 minutes after:
As a long time fan of Queen since my teenage years, I loved it! And hubby (a musician, but not a long-time fan) loved it too, from story, acting, digital production, musicianship, music business, band family, etc.
Bohemian Rhapsody the movie was sooooo well done. Wembley is so amazing! My heart went right out of my chest! Freddie, Rami Malek was aWEsOMe!!! ❤️❤️❤️
An hour after:
The reporter scene is haunting me. Why the need to focus on Freddie? Get into his head? Psychoanalyze him? Ugh! An important moment that I hope people pay attention to the effects of all that. The production of that scene, oh!
Obviously, still processing this. Just go see it. ❤️😘
Three hours after:
Freddie’s sexuality and disease were handled with care, empathy, and compassion, and not exploited. In fact, the interview scene continues to haunt me.
The Wembley stadium Live Aid concert was amazing!!!
The film was more than accessible, highly engaging, and ultimately a profound story of unconditional friendship and love (of which. I feel Freddie approves). ❤️🦋🌀
12 hours after:
I awoke in the middle of the night with Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls song playing in my head and wondering why, since Brian May wrote it, not Freddie.
I recall that as I dropped off to sleep, I’d been thinking about how many of Queen’s hit songs were written by Freddie.
I remembered the God bumps I had powerfully received during the movie. My heart had been in my throat.
Perhaps, as Freddie and the band said, they were “Family.”
Freddie wrote songs to connect people. As he said, he was a performer. Ah, I think he was a connector.
My mind swirls, I am unsettled.
Is this the real life?
Nothing really matters.
–Lyrics from Bohemian Rhapsody
Many hours pass:
Are we dancing on the edge of perception?
Just observing. Always observing.
From an emotionally unsettled place. OM
We Are The Champions. 🎼🎶🎵💋
