Sayonara Film

Was it Jean Cocteau who said that film would never be an art form until it was as cheap as paint and brushes? The day is steadily approaching. Deal with the results America!

This is the work of artist Ryan Trecatrin. If your terrified, don't be terrified; its terrifying and is meant to be. Being one of the more ugly things I've seen, there is something hypnotizing about it. The process of watching says as much about what make us a society as the content.

This piece is in the same vein but longer and slightly more narrative. Give it a chance. By the end, you sort of feel like you've been punched in the face... in a good way. and don't forget, as the great Diderot said, "There's no one who doesn't put the existing order on trial, without noticing he's renouncing his own existence."

Apologies for the links
