Innovation Lesson #23: Speilberg, Pitt and You

I’ve just had a weekend of movie watching and thinking..

Last night we went to see Bratt Pitt’s ‘Tree of Life”

It had won the Golden Palm or some such award in Canne at the Film Festival.

Brad Pitt was in it. Sean Penn was in it.

Assumption = it had to be good…

In my opinion…. WRONG..

Visually stunning… clever…

The rest of it…. artistically ostentatious…

Years ago, one of the founders of the National Speakers Association of Australia, Winston Marsh said we should create a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Innocent Audiences…

This movie would have been banned by that Society.
