how we waste our lives
20 November 2009 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

what is 'Junkopia' about? it's not easy to talk about, because it begins as an advertising about its director, Chris Marker, but it soon becomes something else, some strange form of art. we see a lot of junk, from destroyed planes to the ruins of farms. so 'Junkopia' is exactly what we expect from a movie with such a title: we see a lot of junk. why should Chris Marker make a movie about junk? maybe, what he tries to say, is that we care too much about things with no importance at all. we give too much value on money and we think only at the things we can do with money. that's the hidden message of 'junkopia', I guess, it's about how we waste our lives.
