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. Free Solo 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 rocks, but not The Rock, because he isn’t real, and this was.
I thought this was going to be a Star Wars movie, to be honest, because of the title. A bit like Rogue One, but about them planning to rescue Han from Jabba in Return of the Star Wars.
But it isn’t.
Its about a guy who walks on rocks, really high up, without a rope.
Which is stupid, because you’ll die, which this guy doesn’t.
