Elegiaic Reserved Thoughtful Tripe
There is a film of some fruit in a jar by Tacita Dean...
- In touch with history.
- About decay.
- About nostalgia.
- Treating contested geographical borders.
- Has a deep back story.
- About the death immanent of things.
Anyway that was the last straw. I listen to arts podcasts and read reviews of art, books and films in the hope or learning about something brilliant lovely interesting new. But only 10% of what is written or said by the critics makes any sense. The rest is pompous and pointless. So I'm going on a diet from critics, the pain of the 90% cannot be offset the pleasure of the 10%. A year without them, will I survive?
