The Archive and OKJA!!
A Review of my film “The Archive…” from ALEX COX : “Brilliant! …A lot of shorts (and longs) seem to have no message or moral purpose but this film absolutely does. It is a really strong statement not only against cruelty to things we don’t understand, but also about the perversity of technology and the capriciousness of man, or the man/beast which we are. This is really fine thought-provoking work – beautifully realized and deeply disturbing.”
The Archive of the Movements of Inanimate Objects is playing as an opener for “Okja” at the IFS in Boulder on the evening of Sunday Nov. 4th and Monday Nov. 5th.
Arrive by 7:15 (FYI: The short will start 15 minutes before the feature time) to see The Archive of the Movements of Inanimate Objects.
A Review of Okja By A. O. SCOTT : “Okja,” not unlike “E. T.,” is about how a young person achieves moral insight by connecting with and fighting for a nonhuman creature. Okja’s oppressors, like E. T.’s, are part of a system that refuses to recognize her as anything more than a thing…
…The human performers are all brilliant, but the movie belongs to its title character and her digitally conjured, genetically modified ilk. Okja is a miracle of imagination and technique, and “Okja” insists, with abundant mischief and absolute sincerity, that she possesses a soul.
