This is an industrial film quite literally showcasing how stone is extracted from the earth and made into steel. I know that sounds boring as fuck like something you’d fall asleep during in a high school geology class, but it’s actually pretty entrancing. There is zero dialogue and you’re basically just watching factory machines pound iron to a really hypnotic and engaging score. What little discussion I have come across online compares it to Koyaanisqatsi, but it reminds me more of Herzog’s Fata Morgana .
Based on a discussion I had with GoldenBuddha and the fact that I haven’t seen enough Billy Zane movies I ended up watching Posse. I watched in fits and starts because I kept zoning out and at one point I needed a nap. What follows is some random thoughts I had while trying to enjoy this slog of a movie, written during various stages of sobriety:
Buddha mentioned the “Mo-Tee-Sah” tribe joke and it didn’t disappoint.
I love how seriously…
I hate GG Allin. I hate his music and I hate punks that act like him or think he was anything more than an idiot who wanted attention. I may lose some punx points for this, but fuck it. This doc was very good at showing how ridiculous he was and doesn't idolize him the way that I expected. Still it's not for everyone as GG repeatedly shits on stage, mutilates himself and attacks his audience (who are equally fucked in the head).
