Flim Weakly Review – Boyhood


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, my second nut dropped, so I watched….


A little boy grows up really quickly in this Benjamin Button type story, except that unlike Benjamin Button, this boy grows up un-backwards.

Everyone rides around in cars a lot, his sister is annoying, his Dad has hair and his Mum gets her face broken by a bastard. Meanwhile, the boy gets through puberty without once masturbating.

It is a masterpiece, in that it is the only film called Boyhood that is it.

Marks out of 10…
