Synopsis is here:
“Trash has given us an appetite for art.”Infamous film critic Pauline Kael was the writer who was smart enough to inform us that “Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash we have very little reason to be interested in them.”
A part of me disagrees with this. For me, as ignorant as I am to combat Kael when talking about art (I’m still naive enough to believe that great art often lies in the eye of the beholder), there’s a canny kernel of truth that lies in the words of one her most well-known pieces of writing. We must sift through the trash to find the gems. We most search through crap to find a golden “truth”. Or something like that.
Such an act, screams significance. A film like Nurse that wishes to play on the exploitation curve only really needs to highlight
None of Nurse feels like the fault of the cast. The apathetic nature of the film seems to come from the source material.
