Film is more than the twentieth-century art. It's another part of the twentieth-century mind. It's the world seen from inside. We've come to a certain point in the history of film. If a thing can be filmed, the film is implied in the thing itself. This is where we are. The twentieth century is on film. You have to ask yourself if there's anything about us more important than the fact that we're constantly on film, constantly watching ourselves.

Firework / feu d'artifice "est un merveilleux autonomisation hymne par Katy Perry, à mon avis. cette chanson très inspirante est dirigée exclusivement vers la plupart des gens avec un potentiel inexploité et non réalisés. dit la chanson haut et fort que chacun de nous est essentiellement un feu d'artifice, qui peut sembler ordinaire, inefficaces, laid, ou recouverts dans un emballage insignifiante. et pourtant, lorsque la situation droit naît, comme une flamme portée à un fusible, ils se enflammer et montrer comment incroyable, extraordinaire, et belle chacun d'eux est dans la réalité. ce un trop génial et puissant message positif, et si vrai!
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
Rate it:
Firework” is a wonderful self-empowerment anthem by Katy Perry, in my view. This highly inspirational song is directed exclusively towards most people with untapped and unrealized potential. The song says loud and clear that every one of us is essentially a firework, which may seem ordinary, ineffective, ugly, or covered in an insignificant wrapping. And yet, when the right situation arises, like a flame brought to a fuse, they would ignite and show how amazing, extraordinary, and beautiful each one of them is in actuality. What an awesome and powerful positive message, and so true too!
