Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch cannot be truth, because it’s made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.
Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.
So, what, in fact, is a film?
Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.
But not every film does.
Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.
Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.
This week, I played a game in a film, or watched a film in a game, or played a film in a watch or….what?
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch
The soldier from Dunkirk tries to make his own computer game, but his brain won’t let him.
Then the film started talking to me, and asking me lots of questions, which was weird. Then it started telling me to make his decisions for him, like I’m his bloody wife, or something.
After about ten minutes, I didn’t know what was going on. It feels like a computer game, except it knows it’s a computer game. But its not. It’s a film. But a film that’s a game.
I don’t get it. It doesn’t have an ending.
I’m serious, its still on my tv, but I’m afraid to turn it off, because it knows what I’m doing.
Kicked the dad in the balls, though.
