It really isn't. Nonsensically Contrived--I'm aware this might seem like a contradiction, but it actually isnt because he purposely thought through this story to be unintelligible--self-important trash. So many loose ends that don't get tied up, he tells an intriguing story only to laugh in our faces because it makes no sense. Fuck him to hell. Elephant man was good tho. I haven't seen eraserhead.

No way. "Whiplash" was great. Most of the time I hear people complaining about it, it's something along the lines of "Ha ha it's such a factually inaccurate portrayal of how music works, I noticed this because I am a big expert in music, did everyone notice how smart and knowledgeable I am?"

Oh fuck off. It's not that it's "factually inaccurate," it's just that its entire approach towards artistry is fucked, and you don't need to be a musician to recognize that. It's basically a sports movie, and a pretty good sports movie at that, but peddling the idea that musicianship is basically just endurance training is absurd. And no, this is not a pedantic thing to point out considering it's the conceit of the entire fucking movie.

I hear people complaining about it, it's something along the lines of "Ha ha it's such a factually inaccurate portrayal of how music works,
At a certain point you realize it takes tremendous skill and intelligence to produce even a "mediocre film". Whiplash is great because it's a work of art, not because of at deep themes or extraneous bullshit. I wish I understood this earlier

Fuck off, Johnny Utah! Actually, although I think your read on the film is misguided, I'm not criticizing you here. I'm talking about people who don't really engage with the film at all, instead using it as a springboard to exhibit their musical expertise. (For instance, a few weeks ago I was speaking to someone who claimed that the main character's sweating while drumming "ruined" the movie for him because skilled drummers don't actually sweat that much while playing.)

This is so true to my life, it's beyond ironic. So many people I have met recently act like they are characters out of The Sims, they act like how they think people are meant to act.

There are probably only maybe 6 to 7 people I have met my whole life (31 years old) that I believe are honest people that behave like actual human beings.

That's honestly one of the few I have never seen, but it's going into the hard-drive as I type.

It's got to the point where people say things like "no one is genuine anymore" to indicate that they belong to a certain intellectual milieu, not because they actually believe it and want to change their own behavior. Commodities were a mistake etc.

you misunderstood his point, and i think you misunderstood the ending. instead of a jew meekly succumbing to his death, he laughs in his executioners faces.
besides, the film, you might have noticed, changes k's character fundamentally. welles wasn't in love with the trial, he thought a good film could be made of it.

K didn't meekly submit, he refused to kill himself so they had to stab him instead. He understands what he is supposed to do but he resists, just like every other time he's resisted by actively pursuing his case. He wasn't some belittled man who gives himself to the system; he desperately bucks against the bureaucracy. That's literally the whole book, K refusing to shut up and do what he's supposed to. Welles is a great filmmaker, don't get me wrong. But the film was a hatchet job on one of the most important novels of our time.

Depends on the adaptation. Stuff like Naked Lunch, Solaris do it best. Take what you will from the original and make your own work from it. Don't try and tell the story again, or tell it in your own way. Ruthlessly appropriate and make your own work. Stuff like No Country for Old Men works too, in the sense that it is literally the book in movie format. But either you stay 100% faithful or total departure; anything in the middle is going to be awful.

I think you need to read it again. They even tell K to stop trying so hard. I don't know how you decided that he was guilty considering we never learn what the charges actually were. I can't comment on it it's worth, because obviously that's subjective. But from a more objective view, it was highly influential, and important enough that the most famous film auteur of his time decided to try and tackle it. Honestly I'm starting to doubt you even read it.
