I haven’t read the book, which probably explains why I hated this so much. Throwing stylised imagery, slow-mo bloody violence and sex at a viewer will only get you so far before you actually need to introduce some sort of point or plot to a show. I’ve read elsewhere that ‘You’re not supposed to know what’s going on’, in the same way that our lead character has no idea what’s going on, so I’ll give this one more episode in the hope that something eventually grabs my interest!
“Once he has discovered something, he wants to be off onto the next thing, rather than spending time and elaborating”
My primary school teacher had me pretty well sussed from a young age when writing this in one of my school reports, but with CineChat I’m determined to change all of that. Even though my movie and TV watchlist continues to grow almost as quickly as my available spare time shrinks, I’m going to ensure I spend time elaborating on each one I do manage to tick off the list!
