Pass me the kool-aid now !
20 July 2014 | by (glasgow, scotland.) – See all my reviews

A few years ago a friend of mine forecast that with the advent of digital technology everyone would be free to make movies and music and we would be entering a golden age of creativity …. i remember arguing that just having the tools does not an artist make and we would be swamped in an ocean of mediocrity …. it would be even harder to separate the wheat from the chaff … and now we have "The Sacrament" ….. given that film is no longer a precious commodity we have film makers … and i use the term very loosely …. who are able to shoot scenes that have no particular shape and can go on until all concerned get bored … including the audience ….. combine that with the found footage genre and with a very few notable exceptions this results in exercises in self-indulgence …. amateurish non-acting and sloppy editing …. ……. this is supposedly found footage of a Jonestown massacre but somehow a musical soundtrack has been grafted on …… the filmmakers obviously have no confidence in the the film standing alone without music cueing the audience how and when to react …...the studio system has been much maligned in recent years but at least there were basic standards of competence required before a film was deemed fit for release …… this was made by people who have no apparent talent for filmmaking.
