Magic manic depressant. He/their.
Chazelle being ironic: remember when films were good?
Studio exec not getting the irony and thinking it’s a pitch: yes! we need money, we’ll give you some. consider it a blank check.
Chazelle: oh shit? thanks babe, ciya in 3 years.
Three years later, the studio exec: Damien wtf? We did not tell you to remake boogie nights and have it flop hard!
Chazelle: about that... would it hurt to remake magnolia next? Another 80mil would do the trick.
I don’t get it. There isn’t much of a story, rather it acts as a lecture from a man who feels wronged by society (I think? It was a little hard to understand what The Plumber was saying sometimes). In any case, I don’t think it really works on that level either.
It’s just quite frankly not my thing, it’s loud, it’s haunting, but never does it feel human enough for me to give a damn about. I’m not really…
dude, if this sucks, life wouldn’t be worth living
