ON WALKING OUT OF THE MOVIE…..
The movie by Terrence Malick called “THE TREE OF LIFE” was probably the most boring movie I ever attended. I sat through the first half of the movie and cringed. When is it going to become a vital experience, I asked myself. Two famous actors such as Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain are starring in a dud.
No, this is not a dud, the critics wrote. IT IS ART!! And besides, Terrence Malick is a genius. Audiences throughout the country have become more reverential towards movies and Broadway shows which critics praise. Not me.
I walked out of “The Tree of Life” and never waited to see the final seconds. As for the movie tied for second place with a movie from a long time ago, I asked for a refund. What were the title of these movies?
o HER — too boring even for a movie with sex
o THE DEER HUNTER — too violent
Audiences want to pay homage to those in the highly creative arts: movies, music and theatre. However, it is the prerogative ot audiences to demand quality. If the digital age cannot improve the quality of the arts, rise from your chair and..WALK OUT!
