I give it an extra star just for the silliness. "Here are my two pillows, take them, don't you see?' I would love to been at the planning meetings for some of these videos. "Wait ... You want to do what with your penis?" Richard Prince is a despicable loser. What a surprise! As for Larry Clark, I think this is what he wanted to do all along. Goes back to those Tulsa days.

Tedious, unpleasant, uninvolving, bland, and aggravating. I think the words "pretentious" and "boring" are overused and misused to the extent that they have become practically meaningless.

We Fuck Alone is a gem of modern sexual alienation. The stropboscopic effects are mindblowing.I have mixed feelings for the rest, especially Matthew Barney's segment and Larry Clarck's, which felt like a wanna-be sociological experiment but did look really fake.
