Flim Weakly Review- The House That Jack Built
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. The House That Jack Built 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, someone gave me this on DVD and said it was just like Seven, but it wasn’t.
The House That Jack Built
This guy called Jack is building a house, but he’s a bit crap at it and his brain’s all gumpy and weird, so he tells some random dude about all the people he killed.
The woman who killed Bill gets killed, which is probably ironic. There’s the woman from The Girlfriend Experience and a couple of kids too.
Jack’s a bit of a dick, to be honest, and the random dude seems unimpressed.
He wasn’t alone.
I think it’s supposed to be arty, because it looked like it was shot on an ipad, and I’d never heard of it.
The end was good, though, because it ended.
