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. Insomnia 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, my doctor told me that I had this, so I watched it.
The blind guy from Scent of a Woman stops being blind and starts being a cop.
He flies to Iceland or something, where a girl has been died. Then he shoots his partner by mistake, so maybe he is still a little blind, but blames it on the psychiatrist dude from Good Will Hunting, who is definitely bad because he dresses like a pedophile.
Anyway, the cop can’t sleep because the sun doesn’t go away and the plot is a bit like a Curly Wurly, except that it isn’t covered in chocolate. There’s some gun fire, where bullets go in people’s bodies and a cool bit with the cop playing on some logs.
Marks out of 10….
