कुछ नहीं के बारे में एक व्यंग्यात्मक वृत्तचित्र, वर्णन – सरल, बचकाना कविता के रूप में – इग्गी पॉप द्वारा।
62 सिनेमैटोग्राफर्स द्वारा शूट की गई 70 देशों की छवियों के साथ, यह व्यंग्यपूर्ण निबंध-फिल्म दुनिया की यात्रा कर प्रबंध करती है…कुछ भी नहीं के बारे में। खुद के बेतुके आकर्षण के साथ, स्वयं के अस्तित्वपूर्ण ध्यान को मौजी प्रकाशस्तंभ के साथ जोड़ा जाता है। और क्या है, ईगी पॉप वर्णित है—पद्य के रूप में!
The film could be about the urgent, modern necessity of quiet observation. It is also an ode to the ability of cinematographers everywhere to sublimate the environment around them and transcribe their vision to the screen.
How do you give a star rating to a film like this? With a movie so perversely sui generis, yardsticks are pointless. It all comes down to the viewer’s tolerance for pretension and avant-garde risk taking.
Mitic claims he does not recall when the idea first came to him, but as it emerged he started contacting documentary filmmakers the world over to ask them to send him their best documentary shots of «nothing».
With this one I had a blast! Watching photographies - some funny, most aesthetical pleasures, some mind-bending, others beautiful - accompanied by Tiger Lillies’ macabre music that makes you wanna take Death out for a drink and tell jokes together, plus Iggy Pop doing William S. B. And the idea that we all were once nothing, one day we’ll again be nothing, in-between we’re humans often feeling we’re nothing.
This is easily my favorite movie that I've watched so far this year. I'm not much one for poetry, but the writing of the narration in this movie was beautiful, amusing and profound. The cinematography was not only very well done, but more beautifully combined with the great narration by Iggy Pop and the wonderful musical score into a masterful piece of art.
Halfway through I knew I wanted to watch this again.
A filmmaker’s film, an ode to the camera itself and the beauty of everything it captures, even the most seemingly mundane—or “nothing”—subjects. Not quite narrative, not quite documentary, I guess IPON would best be classified (though that very act defeats the purpose) as an essay film, like “Sans Soleil” but much cuter (though never precious). The cinematography is stunning and Iggy Pop’s narration is a real treat.
A very unusual film: documentary elements (captured with great cinematography), divided in chapters and combined with mixture of music and poetry. The result is sometimes thoughtful, sometimes ironic, sometimes playful, sometimes surreal.
I found this to be an incredibly joyous, light, and pleasurable treat. The cinematography is rightly celebrated - I didn't find a single shot to be anything less than beautiful. Iggy Pop's narration in nonsensical light verse is lovely; however, I found the real star of the film to be the soundtrack - jaunty, moving, and invaluable to the film's pacing.
