Sometimes I see a movie and it makes me feel different (Requiem for a Dream), or a movie makes me laugh out loud (Spinal Tap), or I absolutely hated it (Matrix 2), or I was pleasantly surprised at how bad it wasn’t (Sex and the City), or I was pissed that I wasted my time on it (Palindromes).
I very rarely see a movie that does absolutely nothing for me.
The other night I watched a movie that left me feeling nothing afterwards. Confetti was the movie. Perhaps if I didn’t like the other work of most of the cast - Robert Webb, Olivia Coleman, Martin Freeman, Jimmy Carr - I would have hated it, or would have been pissed that I wasted my time.
But when it was over I was all “meh” and that was that. I didn’t even feel any better or worse for having seen Robert Webb’s willy. A lot.
I almost felt that way about a similar movie, called For Your Consideration but at least that introduced me to Nina Conti, who is teh awesome. The movie is similar because it’s also a “non-scripted” mocumentary.
Anyone else ever see a movie that really did not sway you in any way, good or bad?
