Unmeaningful pretension

Re: A master of meditative beauty, June 23 – 29

What in the name of Angelina Jolie where you smoking, Robert Moyes!

It must have been some pretty freekin good shit to make you give “Tree of Life” five stars.

Only in the mind of a stoned teenager or the vapid flatland of star-addled Hollywood could such a piece of shallow pretension pass as some kind of deeply meaningful art.

In my opinion, you should be made to stand outside the Odeon theatre on a Saturday night and hand out $10 bills as you give an apology to all the bored-looking patrons.
