My girlfriend says I'm an average white boi.
I'll briefly list all the things that are wrong with this film:
- Historical revisionism.
- Characters without development.
- Exaggerated acting.
- People dying without any sense.
- A very toxic relationship portrayed like a fabled love story.
Boring, anticlimatic and disinformative.
But it's old and acclaimed so it must be good, right?
I dont get it. If you have to make a film only you can understand without in depth study, why even bother? A film should be an experience in itself. I should not have to read what you meant when you made the movie to enjoy it.
I did, and its still not enough.
Its not going to give me back the 2 confused hours I spent in front of the screen.
Adding secret meaning and subtexts to a meaningles sequence of meaningless interactions doesnt make you clever or deep. Not if you cant find a way to make people understand.
