Flim Weakly Review- Heat


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’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, the sun came out and cold disappeared, so…


Some bad guys, led by Robert DeNiro, are chased by some good guys, led by Al Pacino. The whole thing is shot through a blue glass ashtray and has some women in the background for the bits when you’re tired looking at Pacino and DeNiro stare at each other. There’s a bit in the middle with a bank heist, where guns happen very loudly, but nowhere near as loudly as …Pacino. It all starts a bit ‘wooo’ then it goes all ‘maaaaaaah’ and then the bad guys lose but not really, because the good guys are all fairly depressed, even though they won.

I think.

Marks out of 10….
