Enjoy this terrible video essay about Pleasantville

Actor-filmmaker Kentucker Audley has built up quite a resume over the years as an always-welcome indie leading man—in movies like Sun Don’t Shine and Christmas, Again—and as an advocate for micro-budgeted filmmaking, though his curated video service NoBudge.

He’s also developed a sideline as a deadpan commentator on the vacuousness of film culture. Having successfully crowdfunded a hat that just says “movies” on it, Audley is now trying his hand at the insipid video essays that clog the film-related corners of the internet with a look at the “cutting-edge cinematography and excellent themes” of Gary Ross’ 1998 film Pleasantville. Enjoy.
