Domino Something Something

I just saw movie that starts with the word “Domino”. It concerns some rich girl who runs around and acts bad, starring Keira Knightley, or however you spell her.

It is terrible. Do not see it.

This movie is carefully, deliberately terrible. It is a work of great craftmanship, pushing the boundaries of how terrible a high-budget movie can be and forcing the audience to ask: “what is it about this movie that makes it so terrible?”. After all, it has obscene ultra-violence, flashbacks, flash-forwards, artsy redundant voiceovers and supertitles, continuous cuts so fast you can’t see what’s happening, film so grainy and contrasty you couldn’t see it anyway, british accents, celebrity cameos, pop-culture riffs, and, importantly, tits. What’s missing?

If I had to guess, I’d say “art”. If you want to see a movie whose goal is to prove by example that there is no art left in Hollywood, see this movie. Otherwise, take a nap or read a book.

Stream of consciousness:
I think I’ve just finally understood what art is. It’s the stuff that makes things like movies not suck.
