I Hate Art

I do hate art. Art like this I mean. Jim Jarmusch's new movie is a self loving, boring, snoozer of meaningless crap. It goes NOWHERE. As my friend, who accompanied me said, the script must have been ten pages because nobody says shit, except of course the shitty lines about nothing. And that being said, it's no great visual cinematic masterpiece either. Sure the main dude looks cool with his nice suits, but after 4 or 5 costume changes into the same dumb (and cool looking) yet different color suit it gets old. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Yawwwwwwwwwwn. I want my fucking two hours back.

I had a video guide back in the day, that rated the movies 5 stars, 4 stars, 3 stars, 2 stars, and a turkey. Happy Thanksgiving Jim Jarmusch.

I felt the same way about "Coffee and Cigarettes," and that film had Tom Waits and Iggy Pop sitting down together, smoking, drinking coffee, and shooting the shit. How do you have that scene and it doesn't work?

a film about film. can be considered boring, as in, to meta for you to care, but I like that style. for example the conversation about the not knowing whether or not you can tell if you are creating your ideas/dreams or if they are just images found in other movies. The bird dipping it’s wing in the sand is a scene from tarkovsky’s “stalker”. The slowness, the utter lack of drama, the perfect rules like “no sex, no cell phones, and no guns” eliminates all the boring clich├ęs of common modern day movies. and sticks to them, with the smallest details, fades, sound effects, the repetition. There is beauty in seeing each small task carried out in an unrewarding, unresolved, yet absurdist way. the movie was good i thought it was visually amazing, and love the way the characters develop and how he drinks espresso. etc. etc. etc. you should take some patience with you to the theater next time dude.

but good, keep writing about music, you're better at that.

Well written Anonymous. Nothing makes me smile more than geting served intelligently...except for maybe getting props intelligently. Yr right, I'll just keep it to tunes and movies I like. -Mario

p.s. But I do stand by my opinion that this movie was a waste of MY time.
