A counter-productive, awful film absent of feeling, lacking in directing, and counter-useless to contemporary society. It has no place in this world. It is a sick twist of fruitless frames & poor intention. Does it even have an intention? What is it’s intention. The book is phenomenal. The book is a document. The book has power. The book is genuine and serves outstanding purpose. The movie is a sad example of so much wrong with the direction of our culture. The book is what it is. It is a historic document. The movie is a cover. To sell. To resell. To promote separation. To rewound. To captivate mediocrity. To negatively influence. To cause harm. To do nothing good. The film does nothing good. It neither does anything good nor is it directed, acted, or filmed good. It is not good. Examples such as this define the opposite of good. It has no place. It may be celebrated, as it would, but for the sake of all that is worthwhile this is beyond not worthwhile. It is anti-while. The book is brilliant, and significant. Though it is ruthless there is a magic to the document’s document: it retains its place in history, as being in the past. The movie however does not. It brings things artificially to the present. The movie was filmed a decade into the 21st century. Why are we creating things such as this! Why are we celebrating them! For fuck’s sake cast off this shit into oblivion. Read the book, burn the film. 0 out of 10. and shame on the director. and pity on the audience who sees anything of value.
& it might as well be the size of a warehouse. or the town of charlotte. or the carolina mountain acres. or the united states. the western hemisphere. or both hemispheres. the planet. and moon. the sun. even the solar system. even the galaxy. the galaxy cluster! the cluster of galaxy clusters! the universe! but though it has no limits in this way, in the feeling of its size, and of its importance, it is confined to a certain physical space, that is to say, everywhere not there is unsafe for the act of creation. everything not done in there is vulnerable to the attack. to the interruption. to the assault. to the resistance. to the demands. to the needs. to the everything not. here is the space but having the space sharply then defines non-space. and so you see, once the space has been made the other 99.99% space that you inhabit becomes no space. So by creating space you actually lessen space. The key there here then is to have no space, not even a walk-in closet, but “to adapt,” they say. That is, to be able to work & create under the pressures of others and their demands and their things & disrespect and fruitless entertainments & distractions and smart phones and cat videos. You may grow dizzy. You may fall ill. But in the process you adapt and retain the universe as yours though trying it always is regardless of the level of abundance. Where there are people there will be no hope for you. Neither this nor that, not the pounding drum nor the empty vibration emitting from an absent human captivated by mindless pleasures on their small screen simultaneously demanding so much. Click. Clank. Clock, hopeless.
“Brilliant!” Eduardo knows this film is genius. Clearly, a film for the contemporary. A film that falls under Henry’s flag of ‘Relevantism’, the self-titled successor to Post-Modernism. “Things are catching up,” and for the first time, that Eduardo has seen, mainstream shifts, before his eyes & ears. There it is. Just as we and he look and have looked into the doorway waiting for the arrival of relevancy and waited & waited it has appeared. It is here. This film is proof. It is proof of all the things. It is relevance perfect contemporary sex education & STD prevention film. It is all right there, it follows but how many see it for what it is? Does it even matter if it’s seen for that? The subliminal message is strong enough. And the soundtrack is brilliant too. Brilliance and Relevance are this film’s winning combination. I give it 9.5/10. It has been docked .5 for the lack of “ABSTINENCE,” message at close.
