Many of the actors and actresses in tv and film are spawned from this culture. Society as a result is celebrity obssessed as well as a deep rooted fascination with apperance and image. So what we have is an entertainment industry designed to opiate the masses with all our superficial desires. The film studios act as the funding to keep the train going along, pumping out blockbuster after blockbuster with budgets closing in on half a billion. Each movie is designed as a product to target every demographic and is carefully analyzed through focus groups to maximize viewer audiences. The people who go to see these movies multiple times are in affect now hooked onto their product. Now with a society that encourages these types of movies also praises the pretty and handsome actors/actresses that are apart of the casts. Normally you will have a few character actors and one or two people that are trending in entertainment and that consists of the cast. Since it's become so affordable to make a movie with a digital camera, many of these movie viewers now, after becoming megalomaniacs, will follow a similar formula as the film studios and will try to capitalize on whatever is currently trending in hollywood. For instance, many new directors are taking advantage of the hollywood goldmine of doing remakes, sequels, prequels, reboots, and even collaberations with other movies. As if adaptations from comic books and video games wasn't enough already, they will combine them and make sequels now. So now we have an entertainment industry which has helped create this disgrace that we call 'cinema' and the mentally-ill, obsessive fans who adore celebrities alive or dead.
Among these actors and actresses a common characteristic holds true. They walk around with a false sense of accomplishment when in reality they have helped perpotrate our society to praise gluttony and excess, creating a mass nation of drugged zombies. They indoctrinate the youth to believe the notion that you don't need to have any talent or skill to succeed. But rather, being pretty and being fashionable and trendy compensates for any supposed lack of talent. They also imply that art and substance are meaningless. With all these amateur supposed filmakers making all this cheap rubbish, often even shooting in a few weeks at a time, actors and actresses can now pump out dozens of films a year for their braindead audiences to twitter about. The term exclusive does not exist anymore hardly in film nor in society. Art has become a mass produced item that our drone society can watch and tweet about at the click of a mouse or a phone. We need to have a massive cleansing of our country before it is truely hell on earth. Ignorance is contagious but unfortunately not very fatal.
I have to say this 'remake' was incredibly disappointing. well to say that i was expecting much is not quite accurate, in fact, i was expecting not very much. however, what i saw with this film was utter mediocrity by this director with poorly directed scenes which if properly produced would not have made the final cut. overall it's an amateur production of this cult film remake. around the halfway point it did in fact start to pick up its pace and there were some memorable scenes. overall though i have to say most scenes were unmemorable. the cliché British techno/house score did not help matters. a big plus was seeing the actor who portrays Milo in this film, as he starred in 2 of the original pusher films by refn. he actually made the film enjoyable to watch at times by his performance. ultimately, Refn had far less of a budget to make his pusher film compared to the budget Luis Prieto had to work with. So to create such a lackluster effort all around by Prieto and the crew is quite a disappointment. Refn had stated early on he did not want to interfere with this remake, though I think he should have considering it does reflect on him somewhat, albeit indirectly.
