Went Right Over My Head or What a Waste of Time
film_ophile from boston mass. usa
23 July 2012
I've never actually given any film a rating of 2, until now. I am just
so miffed that i gave up two hours or whatever to watch this travesty.I
saw Pater today as part of the Boston MFA Annual French Film Festival.
I went to see it because I really admire the work of Vincent Lindon,
but I had not researched it before going. All I can adequately relate
was that it was an experience of watching 2 people(Lindon and the
director/actor) eat a number of meals, talk about daily life, and play
at developing a film (a film that went absolutely nowhere for me.) When
I left the theater, all I could say was "what a waste." I think it was
a purely intellectual exercise and I completely missed any value in it.
For those of you wanting a more informative analytical review,a review
that found worth in Pater,there is a film reviewer whose work I usually
enjoy and respect(Chris Knipp) and his review is included in the list
of Critics Reviews for this film.
