Flim Weakly Review – Dazed and Confused

Never was a film title more apt.


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. Dazed and Confused 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.

“Bambi” didn’t.

Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.

This week, I found my dad’s old lava lamp, but I have yet to find my dad.

Dazed and Confused

All of Hollywood’s under 40s get trapped in the 70s, where they are forced to smoke marijuana and drink beer. It doesn’t say how they got there, but I’m guessing it’s like Stargate or something. 

As confusion sets in, many of the men, including Batman from those crap Batman movies and the dude from True Detective, resort to beating children with sticks, while the women simply drive about and swear. True Detective has a moustache, Parker Posey has an attitude problem and Bridget Jones has no lines at all.

It’s all very colourful and whatever radio station was being used on the soundtrack is excellent, but Eddie from Friends looks weird.

Marks out of 10…
