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. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 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, it was on tv and I thought the title was long….
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Jim Carrey goes to the doctor to have his brain killed because he doesn’t like Kate Winslet, except he does. He goes to sleep and the doctor’s assistant, who is the Hulk, puts a sieve on his head before having sex with that girl from ‘Melancholia’. Meanwhile Kate Winslet shows Jim why he actually still likes her, by dyeing her hair and painting potatoes, before they both go to the beach and Jim’s brain finishes being killed. He wakes up and he and Kate go off and like each other again, which means he wasted his money.
