Double Feature | Year 12 (2008)
Another world, where things never made sense to begin with. A bizarre world. A more relatable world. Michael is a dog, now, and Double Feature leaves Earth to cover Avatar and Greener Grass. Bending elements. Tweet Michael if you’re not listening from Earth. Doing weird without having to suspend disbelief. James Cameron’s Avatar is one of few films younger Eric [redacted]. The plot of Avatar is not unique. 3D is gone. Mall goth scoffing. Personal mythmaking. The silliness of promoting the technology used to create art. Secret Papyrus correction. Was Greener Grass written by an A.I.? Michael watched Greener Grass in a roomful of people who didn’t know what they were in for. Assuming a film was executed as intended. Finding the things a film did well. Anti-art and anti-film. Filmmaking influences. Fans who will seek out films with no advertising or budget. My kid is a dog as a resolution. Suburban film. Mundanity. A lack of goals or purpose. Conflict avoidance. Let’s not make things weird. The questions that arise by not making things get weird.
