how beautiful art - is weaponized
Updated: Feb 2
THIS MOVIE ABOUT TURNER---HAVE U SEEN IT ?
so beautifully filmed---
BUT THE VIEWPOINT OF THE writer- and the FILM MAKER ...
have opted to show Turner AS A LUSTY CREEP ---
in the film- Turner rarely speaks-
-in one scene he does manage to grunt-
HIS KITCHEN MAID from behind)...
if any part of man's life can be seen- through his art-
I would imagine a man who spoke quite a bit- who communicated eloquently and felt deeply...
so - I ask- why has the writer opted to characterize Turner in this way?
I also ask- is there written history which supports the writers view?
Here is what I think-
i assert that once again- a film maker took history
his own manic depressive tint -
an all too common contemporary twisted viewpoint which says people are but empty shells- carcasses even- without true emotions
I also believe- this art is weaponized against human beings- due to these juxtaposed facts/
the quality of the filming is beyond beautiful- so beautiful that despite its lack of PLOT- and twisted viewpoint- it sucks one in like a vortex.
Its rather like an extremely beautiful high class call girl- who likes to torture her customers by intentionally giving them all kinds of diseases- while making love to them.
My last example of art beautifully done- infecting peoples minds with screwed up viewpoints are
the paintings of the much revered (in art circles world wide) Balthus-
His 'craft' is indisputably great.
the way- the paint glides seamlessly across the surface.
The way the figures are modeled in ways so subtle they almost surpass realism-
YET---he appears (by his choice of composition ALONE) to have been a pedophile.
look at these two works and judge for yourself...
