When older people tell me that the younger generation is just a bunch of uncreative layabouts, I refer them to Black Hula to see just what people are now capable of doing, if you put tools in their hands.
I happened to see "Trust" on IFC, back-to-back with "Our Song". The latter is a great work of cinematic art, in which I really cared about the genuine characters and their fates. But in "Trust", I was sort of hoping they would jump into a volcano together, and had no interest in sticking around to see if they did.
I had to turn up the volume on my TV to the highest possible level, in order to hear about 80 percent of the dialog. Some of the talking still remained sub-audible. If you're from Scotland, you might have a chance, albeit a slim one.
Peoples voices were drowned out by nearly all ambient sounds, including unwrapping a package, footsteps, even puffing on a cigarette.
With the volume turned up to a level at which voices can be heard, I can guarantee that at least one of your neighbors will phone the police when the scene changes to a loud environment, such as a disco. And that you will injure yourself diving for the remote to turn it back down.
There is art and there is art, even in the field of audio mixing. But this effort, in a time of war, would meet international criteria to be classified as an atrocity.
After about a half hour, I gave up, having seen nothing else redeeming in the picture, either.
Asperger's is a poorly understood condition, because most people who have it exhibit only some, but not all of its typical characteristics. In Billy's case, repeating the "spanning time" theme over and over again (called "perseveration") is classic. Another common personality trait is to have a strong desire to be involved in a romantic relationship, but nearly always failing because of a poor capacity to understand how to make a relationship work. Aspies very often bond strongly with a few individuals, but otherwise feel very uncomfortable in any social situation. They need everything spelled out in detail, and lack the ability to read body language or catch subtleties or nuances, so attempts to be sociable generally crash.
So, before dismissing "Buffalo '66" on the basis that "How could anybody really be like that", Asperger's Syndrome ought to be your bedtime reading.
It's on at 8-am, 4-pm and 8-pm (Eastern) Fridays only.
