Bodies Bodies Bodies

Bodies Bodies Bodies

Pete Davidson verbally attacks Chase Sui Wonders early on in the film, saying she doesn't have an original thought in her head that wasn't "preordained" by someone on Twitter. Yet this movie, with all of it's tiktok language, doesn't have anything new to say with it's infuriating dialogue. Marcel The Shell, another recently released A24 film with a strong commentary about the current state of technology and social media, speaks in a succinct and poignant manner. With only a few lines of dialogue Marcel is able to prove its point, whereas Bodies Bodies Bodies struggles at every turn, and one would argue that the film even fails to do that. The film has no commentary, and feels as though the screenwriter does nothing more than point out that they find modern Gen-Z vocabulary annoying.

A24 is on the same level of Disney, shaping their movies based on the statistics of its audience, knowing well before a film goes into production what will sell tickets and generate buzz. This movie is going to do extremely well and will gain a very enthusiastic and faithful following. Unfortunately I'm just too old to be one of those people.
