Near non-stop action from start to finish.
Every school has a Ron Weasley. Every school has a Dumbledore. Every school has a Hermione or three or four. Every school has a Malfoy — and a student body who wonders why he was not expelled years ago.
The similarities between Potter and us does not merely extend to individual characters, though, for teachers maintain great hopes for certain students, but cannot reveal all they know.
Teachers struggle between themselves for the sympathy of their students. It is unfair to assume that anyone no matter how close to the top is getting to do exactly what they want, because, like a family or a church, a web of unspoken promises and discreet obligations binds a school together.
The Deathly Hallows, Part I is no less true to life than any of the other Potter films, though it is my favorite in the series because it zeroes in on an aspect of school which tends to make for dull fiction: About an hour into the film, Ron, Harry, and Hermione become fugitives, having just stolen a Horcrux from the neck of Dolores Umbridge.
For the next forty minutes, very little happens. Ron obsessively listens to the news on a staticky radio, and the light crackle of that static sometimes functions as the soundtrack to the film. The trio take turns wearing the Horcrux, a locket, and whoever wears the thing turns pale, sickly, and irritable.
As in The Lord of the Rings, the heroes are all focused on a single object which must be destroyed, but unlike Frodo and Sam, Harry has no idea how to destroy the Horcrux. No clear plan is set forth, and so the students remain on the move, kick around ideas, and lay low.
A chief complaint I have with modern action films and fantasy films is that too little time is given to the characters between scenes to think; older films show characters travelling between one place and the next think of the still, quiet moments in the Millennium Falcon where sparse, though significant conversation takes placemulling over possibilities, staring out the window, looking pensive, and so the audience is given a moment to chew on the plot for a bit before new tensions are added.
I would wager that all the significant moments in Star Wars could be condensed to about sixty seconds of film, though The Last Jedi would probably require five times that much simply because something is always happening.
Hallows director David Yates, on the other hand, is willing to devote the third act of his five-act film to just such slow, skygazing contemplation. Hermione realizes the sword of Gryffindor might be used to destroy the Horcrux, though no one knows where the sword is. After gently pulling her arms a few times to find a rhythm, Harry twirls Hermione and Hermione forgets herself a moment, smiling, losing herself to the dance.
The moment ends just when it was truly getting started, the music becomes a crackle again, and Hermione walks away despondently. Nonetheless, both the audience and Harry need a reminder, amidst the winter doldrums, that there is something which separates them from the bad guys, and that something is the pure delight of useless good manners and high culture.
Goodness is not functional, it is superfluous bounty, overflow. But then they both get back to the hard work of thinking.
Nearly everyone in academia, teachers and students alike, goes through some passage in the year where nothing exciting and nothing pleasant is happening, and school is reduced to some significant, but vexing problem, be it a moral or intellectual dilemma.
In the meantime, life carries on unsteadily, and everything precariously hangs upon the mere possibility of an answer ever coming. In the end, a sin is confessed, an epiphany enjoyed, a life lost, a love confessed, a confrontation staged.
But in the meantime, just waiting, watching, wondering.
