message 4: by Sooz (new)

Sooz i loved this movie, which is fiercely entertaining why addressing the huge issue of culture -or more specifically the arts- in the modern technological age.

when art runs afoul of the technological ability to mass reproduce AND society's need for mass consumerism we end up with a brief self-made celebrity like 'Mr. Brainwash'. that Guetta choses this name for himself and everything that transpires in L.A. while he is putting on his show ....well.... the irony meter is off the scale.

i love it.

Maryanne Raphael (MaryanneRaphael) | 250 comments I never can figure out how to make a comment that relates to someone else's I try to hit reply but it leads me to the end of the line. I once stopped writing for a month because I could not be where I was supposed to be. If it bothers someone I will be happy to write at another site. maryanne

I don’t want to spoil the picture BUT ...When his wife decided to start filming I couldn’t help but wonder what the dynamic would be between them. Sequel?
