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. Bohemian Rhapsody 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 saw the Queen.
A man grows a moustache, which turns him into the greatest singer of all time. Like, way better than Lady Gaga, although he does dress the same way.
He talks a bit funny because he has extra teeth and he gets married to a woman, even though he likes men.
Then there’s this big concert, full of cgi people, which is amazing because they didn’t have cgi people back in the 80s, which is when this is set, because the whole film is real, but not a documentary, because that would mean getting everything accurate, which this probably is, but not really.
Lots of songs that sound like the stuff my dad used to listen to on tape in his volvo, before he left us.
