This trailer is the first place I've seen Sasha Grey look attractive--though the editing was so choppy it would be irresponsible to definitively declare this my new official position on her aesthetics. I've never seen a trailer so intent on obscuring coherence--if this was intentional, it must have been drug-induced and thus not so much intentional as delusional. Although unwittingly hilarious with Elijah Wood seemingly incapable of driving 5 ft without running into something, I will have to take a pass on this film. The multiplicity of screens and profusion of digital dependence, the Sasha Greyness, the random and ultra cliche British voice, the grainy cinematography, and the Elijah Wood still very much looking like he's 12 years old: it all amounts to a waste of time that will be reserved for one flu-stricken afternoon with Netflix and a carton of OJ. Though I imagine, even then, I'll only make it about 10 minutes in before opt to watch the first season of Weeds again for the ummteenth time.

P.S. I just noticed this movie is directed by a man called "Nacho." Good.

Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Superficial, disorganized discussion. No focus, just a scattershot of what would be the first 5 minutes of a university lecture on topics such as language, identity, epistemology, etc. Ask anyone who has given this a positive review to expound upon anything in here and I'm sure you will receive lots of stuttering faltering non-words: 1) Because it's elevated, but 2) Because explanations and investigations are so paltry as to provide unthinking lemmings with very little to regurgitate. Also, a majority of the animation is rather poor and does little to articulate beyond what is achieved already by words alone. I only give it two stars because a few questions Chomsky raised initiated me to pause the movie and ponder for a few minutes.

Like yogurt: Light and sweet but ultimately unsatisfying. Save it for when you're bored and lazy.
