don’t blame tv. the lack of lessons & morals is the natural response to an ever evolving ever changing society. a society wrapped in a cold uncaring reality, like a ham and cheese sandwich wrapped in cellophane. you know it’s not going to taste good, but you forgot your lunch and it’s all the cafeteria has, so you buy it, and you peel off the wrap, knowing the doom ahead, alone only with you, with each and every bite into the lifeless matter. how could a tv show push morality or lessons when we’ve accepted our aloneness, realized there is no truth, and acknowledged that nothing is right or wrong? we are each left to define our own subjective meaning to life, even knowing that nobody else feels the same, that we are each aliens to each other, that we can in no way know what it is to be another. a tv show ending in morality would be but a foreign tongue to any spectator, youngling or adult. art is mountain climbing. each film and painting and sculpture a unique mountain to us all. we climb as we create, we climb as we consume, experiencing our own winds against our own skin, our own hands against our own rocks, our own minds against our own peaks. we climb only our own mountains. morals or lessons can be individually crafted, but never shared, for a vacuumed void exists between us each, a languageless informationless channel, an empty highway, a wall keeping us in and out. no, a tv show is only the scream of writers and actors and executives responding to being itself. and we too watch, in silence, after a long day, with perhaps a laugh here and a wank there, but internally eternally screaming, hoping to be heard, needing to be heard, by a deaf world.
Thirty One  (30 mins)
yes yes yes, andy heck boyd has definitely made an excellent film here. part travel log, part database filmmaking, part home movie, and it seems to be titled after his current age. could this be the autobiographical sketch of andy freak yeah boyd we’ve been waiting for? watch and tell me pls
andy’s wonderful photographic framing via the iphone, which shows no lack of power here in monochrome mode, allows him to play the part of a voyeur into his own life
supporting characters include a mother obsessed with food, distracted fathers, misc flesh bags, and a travel buddy. similar to boyd’s previous work, the film often references cartoons and music. ft a much rumored pile of homer simpson dolls cameo appearance
perhaps most interesting are the frequent performance pieces, where andy himself uses the computer, perhaps to tweet or to “like” something or to play music or to tumbl or to search. and here he displays true confidence, as he blatantly appropriates online content
in fact, these moments online seem to be the only moments of control andy has. he otherwise seems trapped, a victim to the world around him. he does not drive, he lives in another’s home, on vacation he’s guided by a friend, impeded by traffic, stuck in an unevolving suburb. even his xbox is controller-less
this film, a screen window into this 31 year old character’s life, reveals that he is only in control at the screen, the window to the online world. but perhaps anybody Thirty One and younger can relate
i give it 5 homer simpson dolls.thirty one.andy heck boyd.alt lit.5 stars.iphone.review.experimental film.
