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. Welcome To Marwen 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, Barbie on acid.
Welcome To Marwen
The dude from Anchorman tells some dudes that he likes to wear women’s shoes and they kick the living piss out of him, until he stops telling them. Then he goes a little funny in the head and starts building a little world out of lego or something and uses Barbie dolls to have girlfriends, a bit like in that movie Mannequin, except that was a mannequin, and that dude had sex with her.
That is not this movie, but the dolls are super creepy and then it ends by telling me that it was actually real, which is actually really scary and makes me glad that I didn’t have any Barbie dolls, except the one that I found in the street, that didn’t have any hair. Anywhere.
