I watched Avatar last night. Hi-tech, low politics, lower art. Echt kitsch, ugh. Kitsch visuals, kitsch plot, kitsch pantheism. Ugh,ugh,ugh. Religion and morality for kiddies and liberals. It has value as insight to the shallow dreams and self-approval of the permanent adolescents who run much of the West.
My best film of 2009 is here. Low-tech, middle brow, high art.
