Completely and utterly unintelligible. Southland Tales is a complete mess of the most colossal scale. What’s worse is that it doesn’t know it. It spends 2 hours doing it’s best to be heady and in the end it is just stupid. It doesn’t know if it is a dark comedy or a dark sci-fi.
That said, I don’t really regret watching it. It looks nice. There is something in it that wanted to be good. There was potential for quality entertainment. The music is well chosen and well mixed. Too bad it is just a movie filled with references, cameos, humor and no connective tissue. It wants to be big, but it feels disconcertingly small. Oh well. Better luck next time Richard Kelly.
Trying to figure out why I am the only one unable to connect to ftp here.
Ellis just pointed out a wonderful illustrator from Spain. I hope he works with her soon!
