Movie: Playtime

Tour-de-force bad, on par with Russian Ark. We’re talking grand unique concept, huge execution, laudable acting & cinematography, worthy of adulation in all things – and it is unbelievably boring. Filmed in large-frame 70mm to capture all the detail, it indeed captures all the detail as intended ... so very much detail that, in a possible and unintended view thru an autistic’s eyes, anything akin to story and social interaction is almost completely lost amidst the surrounding activity.
