Adaptation. (#88)

What a stupid movie. I hated it. To begin with, I have a strong distaste for meta humor. If a film’s going to be self-aware it better be a) brilliant, b) controlled, c) have earned the right to be so. Adaptation is none of the above. It is boring, boring, boring…. still pretty boring and refuses to end. Putting an ice pick in my eye would have been more entertaining. If it hadn’t been for class and I hadn’t been with a group of people I’d have turned it off. (And be still all you Kaufman fans who try to explain its brilliance to me: “No, you see, it was a film about writer’s block because he had writer’s block about this exact project!” I get it. Really, I do. I just thought it was stupid regardless.)
