DarkJade’s Films of Meaning – Forrest Gump

by DarkJade

Testing The Limits of Inspiration…

Forrest Gump

 

 

Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolate…

In 1994 Director Robert Zemeckis took one of The Greatest Actors of Our Time, Tom Hanks, and showed us all “What it is to Live This Life”… Through Heart, Simplicity, Beauty and Love.

As a Child, Forrest was a Cripple, and told he would never walk normal… And that he was “Slow” Minded… And Yet, through this film, you will see that even the Greatest Challenges that can be thrown at you, can Lead to a “Life Worth Living”…

Forrest would not only Walk… He would Run…

One of the things that always Fascinated me about this Story was, Any Direction that Forrest would end up going, he would Find Some Form of Success… Driven by “Pure Intention”, and General Curiosity.

Another thing that always Impressed and Intrigued me about this Character, was the fact that “He’d Never Lie”… Never. Something that is Very Important to me, is “Honesty”… “Honor”… And “Truth”… His Character was a Sterling Example of Just How Much Integrity a Human Could Possibly Have… Apparently “Lying”, and other such “Destructive” Behavior is Saved for us “Complicated” Thinkers… Of course, all it ever does is “Make Our Lives More Complicated”, then they ever need to be.

Yes, to Forrest, things like “Friendship”… And “Trust”… And “Good Deeds”, were basically just “Common Sense” (Seen Here with his Future Friend Dan Taylor, played Brilliantly by Gary Sinise).

And when his Good Friend Lieutenant Dan Lost the Use of his Legs, Forrest Never Saw any difference… No to him, he was Simply “Lieutenant Dan”… Legs or no. He was his Friend.

And to Forrest, there was Nothing More Beautiful in The World, than his Childhood Friend, and Love of His Life, Jenny. Jenny on the other hand, took her “Destructive Childhood”, and Blended it with her “Complicate Mind”, and the result was, she barely made it out of her Teenage Life Alive… But Forrest was always there… No matter what she said, or did… To him, she’d always Simply Be… “Jenny”.

Through his Acts of Kindness, and Honor, Blended with his Drive To Live a Full Life, Forrest would end up Finding Himself Being a Multi Millionaire… All because he Lived Simply, and Acted Honorably… And Let His Spirit Lead His Way.

And though the Most Illusive Gift In Life, Finding Someone To Truly Love, And Spend Your Life With, Always Seemed to Elude Him

In The End Like His Mamma Always Used to Say…

You Never Know What You’re Goina Get

But I’ll Tell You What You “Do” Get From This Film…

Brilliant Acting…

Moving Music…

Timeless Film Making…

A Flawless, and Inspiring Tale of Love, Hope, Dreams and The Thorough Exploration of This Thing Called Life…

From A Simple Man, Who Only Longs To Make Friends, And Share Moments, With The One’s He Loves.

If You Haven’t Seen It

You May Be The Only One On The Planet That Hasn’t…

And I would Highly Recommend That You “Remedy” This Immediately

Nuff Said
