my name is jared mobarak and i thank you for visiting …
this site is an embodiment of who i am: my art, my interests, my love of the cinema. influenced by the world around me, my design work takes a minimalist approach to distilling a subject to its core, representing it in simple geometric forms or carefully cropped photography depicting its essence.
and since our ideas, imagination, and every thought are shaped by our experiences, each movie seen brings with it something to hold onto—something to come back to and use, however subtly, in a piece of work. i am not a film critic, but a film fan. greatness can be the work’s script, performances, visual style, or something i just can’t put my finger on, grabbing hold and resonating on a level for which i have no control to ignore.
the musings here are about my individual experience with the films; the cinema takes us to another world and the true success is whether you went willingly and cannot wait to return. critics may try and tell you what is ‘good’ or ‘bad’—they’ve been placing value on art objects for centuries—but only you can be the judge. art is only worth the price you yourself place upon it.
