    The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle

    ★★★½

    Very inventive that it's injustice to compare it to Youtube stuff. Marshall Allman looks a bit like Christian Bale. Wondering how Russo discovered the Turkish rapper Ceza. And what is the political subtext of this film? Probably our dull lives under the shadow of corporates. Adorno and Horkheimer claims that people of this century know nothing other than working. It is so explicit that people reproduce what they do during their work hours in their free times (toilet art sequence).

What we usually enjoy in art is - this is mostly unnoticed - how the artist frees himself. Thus he becomes an example for our own path to freedom.

And what was written on that paper is a massive msytery!
