Florida Project: An open-ended treatment of the events, themes, and spectacles of everyday life

I recently saw the Florida Project playing at the Revue Cinema at 400 Roncesvalles Ave. in Toronto.

I was impressed with both the film and the venue.

If you have the opportunity to see this film, I recommend it strongly.

As I noted in my film review on Twitter:

Refreshing film addresses themes in a manner that is open-ended, calling upon each viewer to arrive at her or his own reading of the events, themes, and spectacles of everyday life.

My brief film review brings to mind all that I learned about succinctness in writing, during the period from 1975 to 1980 when I worked as a part-time freelance writer in Toronto. An editor that I worked with at Cinema Canada in those days, namely Natalie Edwards, taught me (at a time when she was still relatively young, and I was much younger still) many things, in our meetings at Cinema Canada’s Toronto office located at that time at 406 Jarvis St., about writing for a paying audience. As is the case with others who knew her across Canada, I owe many thanks to her and to her memory.
