Bruce Connor Response

The three movies we watched were all very interesting, but the first movie, A MOVIE, hit me the closest to home.
I had seen A MOVIE a number of years ago. I believe my dad showed it to me. Back then it confused me, for the most part, but it was the first time I had seen a nuclear blast and gave me a feeling of awe. Now, I feel dread as I watch the nuclear blasts and imagine the archipelagos and test houses replaced with bustling cities. Overall, the chaos of the movie, of the soft core pornography, tanks, etc., speaks to me of the chaotic nature of humanity as we are now - driven by desires, materialism, and mutual hatred for one another on baseless ideologies.
