"Who decides what's good art & what's bad art?"
29 March 2017 | by zkot-839-452731See all my reviews

That's the point at which I tuned out of "Nobody Walks in L.A."

Do I believe the story?

Sure. Why not?

Do I care about the story?

Nope.

Do I believe the characters?

Yeah, sure. What's not to believe?

Do I care about the characters?

I couldn't care any less about them.

I will address the question Miles asks about 20 minutes into the movie. Good art, music, literature -- sure, it's all subjective. For me, I've got to believe it, and I've got to care. An indie film made by people I've never heard of before, in the Rom- Com-Dram genre -- few votes on IMDb, average is 6.8 -- that piques my interest. Might be interesting. I like Rom-Coms, anyway.

Now that I've decided to watch your movie, you've got to reach inside and grab my heart and soul. A pretty blonde is fun to look at, but she's not going to keep my interest for an hour and a half. My heart and soul begged for freedom from the contrived walk in LA, so I liberated them by opting out when I heard the question quoted in my summary.

I don't know about how others decide what's good art & what's bad art, but that's how I decide. I use the 4 questions above, which all must be answered "yes", and my heart and soul command me to pay attention. Any piece of art that does all of that, is what I consider "good art".

"Bad art", on the other hand, for me, might be a 93 minute movie of which I can't even bear to watch 21 minutes, because I just don't care.
