    Film Blog #1

    Definitions of slang words and sources are at the bottom!

    G'day! So, I thought I would fettle my stizz¹ a little bit and start some sort of film blog, which is basically a blog only in reference to one specific film or genre or theme. Or all of those combined, I don’t know, I haven’t really figured it all out yet. The main…

    "WHO TAUGHT YOU MATH!?"

    Ok, so I had to explain the plot of this film to my dad, because he had no idea what was going on for most of it, so I might as well just write it down now, while I still can:

    Greased hair, slicked back
    Everybody gone bad
    Exposition, adaptation
    Everybody exploitation
    On Netflix, on the news
    Everybody grab food
    Sit down, on the couch
    Witnessing Joe Pesci shout:

    All I want to say is that
    Hoffa doesn't care about us
    All I want to say is that

    Beat him, hate him
    Really fucking break him
    Warn him, scorn him
    You should never mourn him
    Do him, Sue him
    Everybody do him
    Kick him, strike…

    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★½

    It's more like finishing a 5 season long tv-show.

    It seems longer and shorter than it is at the same time.

    It makes no sense and perfect sense.

    It's almost like the work of a very well organized crack addict.
