I guess my question to that is why should money, attractive people and action sequences be considered shallow?
Only cheaply made, ugly, unpleasant experiences have artistic legitimacy?
Are you an avid Jodo fan? Or a Snyder hater? Or both, cause I think your main point is that you hate Zach Snyder, which is fine, but it is a biased opinion.
Oddbill makes a valid point. Jodo and Snyder are very similar directors. I've seen Jodo's El Topo and The Holy Mountain, and these movies when I saw them were hard to find, I went out of my way to see them because of the visuals, I watched both movies and I found them almost unwatchable.Slow paced, convaluted, stories with very little narrative structure, hardly any attempt at characterization, random shots of nudity.
It's like he just come up with all of these acid trip visuals in his head and then half heartedly attempts to tell a story to justify the visuals in his head. Does this remind you of anybody?In essence, Both jodo and Snyder are talented visual directors with a huge weakness in telling a whole story.
There are only two discernible differences between these direcors.Snyder is obsessed with anything and everything to do with fandom. In many ways, he's like the millions of nerds that profess to know so much about movie making, yet he's one of the few that actually tried and succeded in being succesful in movie making.
Jodo on the other hand is obsessed with taboo subjects of religion, sex, sacrilage, death, and the existensial crisis that is life.
and its there particular tastes as directors that explains there second difference.Zach Snyder wants every one to enjoy his movies, there is a desperation in his images that shows this and the main reason why his movies would be considered shallow, and simple and un artistic. Which is an unfair criticism, i think.
Jodo on the other hand, because of the subject matter he obsesses, does the opposite, he would care less about whether the audience gets it or not. His stories are convaluted and deep but thats because of the subject matter he chooses to do.
Seriously, is that how it works. If you don't care at all about enteratining an audience your an autuer, but if you truly care about entertaining the widest possible, then your a hack.
This isn't an absolute truth, its an opinion.
