Like a dank smelly run down theatre in the middle of the city that plays actual film? He was making a stylized film.
I admitted that the idea was a cop out but to just act like it's not in the idea/concpet is just plain fucking RETARDED. Are you that fuckiong dense that you can't see that they BOTH were trying to make somewhat BAD films?!?!?
I agree it makes it hard to criticize but it isn't impossible. And the first step in being a decent critic of the film is to aknowledge the concept, not just dismiss it like it's not even there.
