Sometimes unintentionally funny, because the intended provocations don't work properly. Especially Abramovic's part is very poor compared to her often strong Performances. However the film does have some special visual moments: For me, Marco Brambilla's fast montage with its close relationship between visuals and sound is the most original part.
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. More Abramovic, please.
Worth it most definitely for "Hoist". Watched it on DVD from Netflix which I guess is missing the works by Abramovic and Sam Taylor Wood. Pretty bummed out because I was looking forward to the two. The video by Tunga in the DVD is also of note mainly for the crystals and shit eating.
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. However, I'd say this film is something of a rarity and deserves to be tagged with both terms. Larry Clark's contribution is the only noteworthy one.
