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. Under The Skin 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, Film 4 showed that alien sex movie.
Under The Skin
The girl avenger from ‘The Avengers’ is an alien who comes to Earth to have sex with Scotland. She drives around in what looks like the sort of van your simple cousin might drive. She dresses like a hooker, which is perfect for picking up stupid men. She lives in a shed full of oil or something and is black underneath her skin which I think means she’s not racist, but can’t be sure because I stopped paying attention after she put her clothes back on.
