Flim Weakly – Get Out
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. Film cannot be truth, because it is 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, my thoughts on…
Get Out is about a man who goes to stay with racists for a weekend, which is stupid because he isn’t racist, so going to stay with some racists might make him racist too.
Some weird stuff happens, weirdly. His girlfriend is played by that girl who is friends with Lena Dunham, but she’s not in it, and the guy goes swimming a lot, while crying, which is also weird, because it’s supposed to be a comedy, or something.
Anyway, the guy gets angry and racism doesn’t win, which, in a way, is maybe also racist.
5 out of 5.
