Well, it did.

Where I live, the art scene is very sparse. And, by “sparse” I mean “the general public here would rather burn slowly in hell for all eternity than subject themselves to such torture as sitting through a movie like 12 Angry Men or Koyaanisqatsi and complained that Michael Clayton didn’t have a plot”.

A perfect example of this is when No Country For Old Men came out. I went to see it with my brother, and (surprise, surprise) Our local theater was showing it in theater 5. Theater 5 is the one where they move all the movies to that they have to keep showing, but nobody is going to see them. Really, I’m more surprised that it was showing in our town at all than that nobody wanted to see it.

Back on topic.. my brother an I were two of maybe 10 people in the whole theater watching the movie, and everyone else that was there was talking through the movie exclaiming how much they didn’t get what was going on. When the movie was over I was sitting there reeling from the magnificence of what I just saw when somebody mentioned “That movie was so weird. It made no sense.” the reply from another movie goer was “Yeah, it’ll probably win best picture.. hahaha!!

Need I say more?
