There are no ‘in-between’ scenes in television or movies.
That’s how they can tell stories about days, weeks, months, or years in minutes.
The vast majority of actual life is left out.
This, by itself, isn’t a bad thing.
We want to hear or see the story, but not in real time.
The problem arises when we begin to believe that what we see on the screen is more like real life than actual real life.
Then, it’s us who’s missing the big picture.
Not the director.
