A good friend recommended Battleship Potemkin! Very inspiring! WIN!— Donald Trump (@ArtHouseTrump) September 13, 2016
Donald Trump's ham-handed rhetoric is appalling and reductive, except, it appears, when applied to the über-pretentious world of art house cinema, where movies are films, directors are auteurs, and the audience members, a lot of the time, are victims. I don't know who dreamt up @ArtHouseTrump, but I can unequivocally declare it my new favorite Twitter account.
Having lovingly worked at a repository theatre back in high school, I take a perverse personal pleasure in takedowns of mumblecore god Andrew Bujalski, Wings’s 1927 Best Picture win at the Oscars, or Nathaniel Dorsky's decision to not release any of his films digitally. As I wrote this, my coworker begged me to "go gentle on art house," but I don't feel like it. Pathetic!
Elitist Nathaniel Dorsky still won't release his movies digitally! Thinks Middle Americans aren't good enough for his films! Out of touch!— Donald Trump (@ArtHouseTrump) September 15, 2016
Sátántangó DVD set awful! Not enough to watch Hungarian slobs for 7 hours, I have to watch them in a non-anamorphic transfer! Facets a joke!— Donald Trump (@ArtHouseTrump) September 14, 2016
