Korine's 'Mistakist' Declaration

Postby gbessellieu » Wed Dec 09, 2009 7:15 pm

Julien Donkey-Boy and the “Mistakist” Declaration

1. I have never been one to gravitate toward the labeling of things, but I feel forced to declare my adherence to a mode of creation known as “Mistakism.”
2. I am a “Mistakist,” and all the work I produce adhere to the tenants attached to the label/movement.
3. (Factors involved include:)
4. All modes of work exist to produce a single body of work. Each facet builds upon the other.
5. You can never differentiate between the separate modes of creation.
6. A completely unified aesthetic.
7. Mistakes are good.
8. There is no such thing as a true mistake, only a more modern rethinking.
9. Suicide is a show of strength.
10. Only in randomness and mistakes can one truly announce what is too deep to express in a direct and true way.
11. Football games, science projects, and explosions.
12. Rather than direct a scene – document an action.
13. Provocations.
14. Heritage – Lineage – Prejudice
15. Grammar means more when words are misspelled and used incorrectly in the traditional sense of the word.
16. ---
17. Jokes without punchlines.
18. Hermits and rural loneliness
19. A “Mistakist” must believe in God over all else.

This is how I made Julien Donkey-Boy.

THE DOGME 95 is early “Mistakism.”

These things were all posted before:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2313&p=31692

And the other topics are elsewhere on the site. Those long quotes, which I think you took from the book, all come from the interview here. The 'Jokes' part is also on the Jokes page.

I'm guessing you typed them out yourself for posting here? If so, in future you should select just a particular sentence from whatever it is and search it in Google and you'll see if it's already online (like so), it can save a lot of trouble.

Whoops. Apologies. Yeah I did type them. Not sure why I didn't bother to Google it. I usually do.
