Waiting for Inspiration
24 October 2016 | by qeterSee all my reviews

Seen at the Viennale 2016: A guy loses his creativity and drifts loose through his best years. But to be honest, we do not know whether this guy was creative in the first place. We can only assume that, because it might be logical. Maybe the whole movie is just some sort of insider-joke for filmmakers. I liked the sexual freedom of this movie, but could not follow the story itself. Many actions of the main guy seemed to happen out of nothing, without the wish of doing something with aim. Without any hint, why the guy is doing what he is doing I (and my brain) was benumbed. Maybe the script writer and the director of that movie had the same problem as the guy. No aim for the movie, no direction. Such is life. Sometimes.
