Someone once said to me (that someone being our one time columnist Niall O’Sullivan) that intense and complicated visuals need a very simple audio narrative to accompany it, lest the whole package will overwhelm the viewer. In other words: the reason why Avatar’s story was so
stolen dumb stupid patronizing l owest common demoninator twaddle simple was so it didn’t get in the way of the big blue never before seen 3D people beating the crap out of War Machines. It is also the reason why the lyrics of Stark Reality are so… special.
This is not a negative of the poetry of Daniel Cockrill (seen in the below) In fact, by keeping the tale of a boy who is made to bottle his emotions (literally) as easy to follow as possible, you can enjoy absolutely brilliant visuals without feeling like your brain’s being yanked four corners apart by horses. Watch.
