say cheese and die
11 March 2017
disappointing. wanted to put it down at 30% hung on until halfway but it was clear this was not for me.
it started off fine. a red wine while cooking. pondering the lightness of youth. autumn, and a lovely fitzgerald quote. but then it turned into a kind of predictable pinball machine of mediocrity.
you know when they squeeze the entire plot of a film into the trailer, but then you watch film anyway and to not-your-surprise it's just the trailer drawn out into a long series of explosions and gasps? If that sounds like a good use of time to you then read this.
