Jake Wilson refuses to eat MUFF
August 26, 2009
Here is a link to Jake Wilson’s review of MUFF. See here.
Its his usual part hostile approach to it. But, its better than Adrian Martin’s purely hostile approach, I suppose…
He says our Open Letter doesn’t hold water but can’t really say why. His objections are clearly dealt with in the document itself. He also hardly gives us credit for being one of the few people who has the guts to say anything about the state of the OZ film industry. He’s too busy busy sipping latte’s with the likes of Michelle Carey, dullard, MIFF programmer and Senses of Cinema cultural gate keeper.
Here is my Facebook post on the matter currently stirring up debate. Will post some choice responses later…
“Jake Wilson being a semi cunt (again) as he continues in his eternal quest to be Adrian Martin. But, at least he covers the festival and he did program a MUFF section in the past, so he can’t be all bad! Haha. He also attempted to engage with th e Open Letter this year, which was nice, though he dismissed it. Last year’s Manifesto on Ontological cinema had him bamboozled… as he knows zero of Heidegger. Funny that!”
