Many mainstream movies have this pattern : “Evil vs Good”, and a good villain is funny, right?
Today I’ll play a cross-game with another pattern : “Chaos vs Order”.
It can be similar : “Evil brings Chaos, and Good brings back Order”.
But of course you’re like me, sensing, that the contrary is true, and probably more interesting…
Evil = Order, like the First Order in Star Wars, and the perfectly aligned Nazis army.
Order means “every rule obeyed”, and that’s a bit 1984…
Yesterday I watched “A little Chaos“, a charming little film (directed by Alan Rickman!) : chaos brought by an inventing gardener hired by Le Nôtre – while Louis XIV was building Versailles, in France.
“Something uniquely French”? Order, but with a little chaos, or a casualness, maybe a slice of disobedience (to the rules), effortless elegance, imperfections embrace. Yeah, that’s the Parisian Elegance…
Well, I have this in mind since I saw “perfect gardens” – my brain was craving for fantasy! There’s a wiki for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_garden_types –
Well, is it an article? Beginning with cinema, then France, then gardening? In what other fields of the human activities do we have to find our own frontier, balance, between chaos and order? In rocket science, 100% order, right? Art of Battle : 80%? What is discipline? What and where is invention? Can we have both at the same time? Differences of nature, quantity, places?
Have a nice day!
