This brings to mind a mostly unrelated paraphrased quote of Flannery O'Conor, that goes something along the lines of "A lot of people say that you get to escape reality when you write. They're wrong. Writing is about suffocating yourself with reality." Anyways... it goes something like that. The point is, is that while this holds true for books, I don't think it does for movies. And that's not to say that there are some books that are unrealistic, but that they are realisticly unrealistic, while many movies are simply unrealistic. That might not make any sense at all. I hate that movies and television have replaced reading to such a degree... but in our mindless warp speed society, how can something that demands thinking and comprehending and effort possibly compare with the screen, when it's doing everything for us...
This does have an enticing rhythm as you question the critic who supposed the movie was worth something. Apparently it's not and it sounds from your description like something very angry applied itself to film as it passed through the digital mindworks.
Because you use some pretty rank language and it's not that it doesn't fit here, to me it doesn't fit anywhere. Even the image of what you're playing in my imagination isn't pleasant.
I have to be true to form and tell you I have no desire to see this movie. But that might be exactly your portrayal, what's love got to do to with it? But the c word is really derrogatory in my mind and I don't like it, even if I'm seeing it in a positive context which hardly ever seems to occur But I suppose it's that I love women and they are a beautiful blur in my mind.
I'm not offended, just speaking up for the effective aim of satire.
Not to be repetitive, but I also liked the beat and the conversation weaved in. I did find feel a bit lost for a moment there between "so this is how" and "with a worthy foe." I mean I followed and loved the bit about the islands, I just felt like they weren't completely woven into the rest of the conversation. The opening was harsh, but in a good way, and I have to say I liked it overall.
I'm not entirely sure what makes this so appealing. It may be the stacatto sort of beat it has, or the way you made a conversation into a poem. Admittedly, somewhat darker stuff tends to appeal to me, and I think this qualifies. I can't think of critique. I like it the way it is.
