Srpski film (2010)
Capitalism exploits: Salo for the 21st Century
Powerful film. This is what happens when money is god. Pasolini did the same thing with 120 Days. If you're offended by the film, tough. Also watch Leviathan for a similar lesson just minus the more visceral elements found in this film.
The worker and his family are expendable in a world where power is all. Think of Christians supporting Trump.
Black Mirror (2011)
I had so many people tell me that I would really like this series. So I bought the dvd box from the UK, and started watching.
"The National Anthem" was one of the most ridiculously absurd crapfests I've ever seen. There are so many things wrong with the whole kidnapping story that it beggars belief. This would never happen under any circumstances. The denouement made the set-up a bad joke. And the finger??? Nobody could tell a workingman's finger from some dainty "princess" digit? It beggars belief.
I'm throwing the box set in the trash.
Don't waste one second of your life on this.
Donnie Darko (2001)
Philosophy for teenage dummies
Yeesh. The praise this high-school slop gets is ridiculous. This movie is okay, when you're 14 and still think that Marvel films are "it".
Wanna watch Art Cinema?
Try Antonioni or Resnais.
You'll forget all about the "scary" rabbit and the half-assed "theorizing" on time travel. Try "Primer" for a truly head-twisting time travel film.
Or maybe it is just a nostalgia trip for guys who saw this in their teens.
Funny Games (1997)
Art house torture porn
I like Haneke. His films have been getting better since Code Unknown. But I don't have to tolerate this crap. It's a well made film, but what's the point? If you enjoy it, there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with you.
And cannot the woman pick up the remote and rewind the film too? Do sick evil monsters only have access to technology?
The defenses of this film are much like those for Natural Born Killers. If you like transgressive entertainment, so be it.
Leave me out of it. It's like watching Nazis torment concentration camp prisoners, while they laugh and manipulate their victims.
