The Killer

I watched this recent­ly: It was once an actu­al flash based graph­ic nov­el and a French one at that. then became an actu­al graph­ic nov­el which the flash web­site was based and final­ly a lim­it­ed edi­tion movie straight to Net­flix. I like Mag­ne­to aka Michael Fass­ben­der.  he some­times comes across as too seri­ous that it’s pret­ty unin­ten­tion­al­ly comedic. like are you going to stare holes through my soul or some shit? Lolz. Well its rare (actu­al­ly: nev­er) that David Finch­er does action. so you can bank on it being an art­house action flick (which it is). it’s visu­al­ly gor­geous you actu­al­ly do feel like you’re in Paris or oth­er parts of the world through­out. so there’s that. what makes this com­pelling and watch wor­thy is it puts you in the pilots seat. You become an assas­sin and you get a feel and taste of what that is actu­al­ly like. And its not like the Tom Cruise inter­pre­ta­tion of it in Col­lat­er­al (though that movie was one of the few of his I actu­al­ly did like). The sus­pen­sion of belief …

my sec­ond post here. the blank can­vas lies before me, or the blank page if you’re a writer (like myself). it could be ter­ri­fy­ing for some but that’s only because of pas­sion, excite­ment, and adven­ture. art isn’t hard, nei­ther is writ­ing. we just make it thus. we want these oft addic­tive hob­bies to be more than they actu­al­ly are (or aren’t?). I have a unpop­u­lar opinion(s) yo: art isn’t love art isn’t life art isn’t reli­gion art does­n’t solve prob­lems, but it can (it can make you $$) it can instill pas­sion, but isn’t pas­sion it can stim­u­late con­ver­sa­tion, but isn’t con­ver­sa­tion its eas­i­er than some might think, and even eas­i­er than what the mul­ti­tudes already do Picas­so once said: he spent a life­time to learn to cre­ate art as a child does read these books: the Art Life, Art & Fear, and the Artist’s Life. And in no par­tic­u­lar order if you’re a human being, you are art. but this isn’t about art I just want­ed to plug this in. I’m think­ing about what to write about nowa­days. I have plen­ty and I have none. despite what peo­ple and …
