nothing interests me less than this film and its status as a phenomenon; it is totally lacking with what i find valuable in cinema, a pure void, consisting of cameron playing around with his big budget trainset and demanding us to recognize it and pay attention to his mechanistic rendition of nature. nothing is spontaneous here, everything is under rigorous control, stuffed into a digital filing cabinet labeled 'The Hero's Journey', paving the way for an army of greenscreen'd megafranchises that render our world into a monolithic caricature. there is no space for humanity in avatar; we're just along for the ride.
