One thought on “About

  1. I attended the WAM COLLECTIVE sponsored screening of “Connected” at the Weisman last night. I want to thank the COLLECTIVE for providing the public with such an opportunity. The wonderful snacks and the chance to tour the Weisman collection was delightful. It’s too bad that the film was such a disaster. “Connected” is nothing but a self-indulgent, pseudo-scientific home movie that perhaps would be a passable work of a first-year film student.
    The fact that this woman’s father died of cancer and that she has had difficult pregnancies may be of interest to her friends and family, but to imply that we’re dealing with some kind of connected technological revolution revolving around these events is just plain silly. Her disingenuous citing of John Muir, de Vinci, Einstein, etc. in attempts to make her film somehow relevant was embarrassing. The repetitive insertion of film clips and tired graphics was neither humorous nor informative.
    I’m sure that the COLLECTIVE has access to a number of documentaries dealing with perhaps some of the artists on display at the Weisman which would be better examples of real documentary filmmaking.
    Thank you again for staging such events. It was a pleasant evening until the film started.
