I thought it was funny.

That it was so fucking contrived!!! I could see what it desperately tried to be, so much that it just fucking spelled it all out for you and left nothing at all to the imagination... I found it insulting actually and left the theater feeling a bit nauseas...
Yes, I know, this sounds like an extreme opinion but I absolutely did not like this film even though I only paid 1.50 to see it... the popcorn was good though!

pikkle,

I'm surprised you didn't like THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS. I really dug it. What about it did you dislike?

Blah blah blah...

This three-tiered forum is too damn much trouble. Hence my extended absence...

This weeks viewing, on DVD natch:

Royal Tenenbaums
Amelie
Dagon (Stuart Gordon rules)
Comic Book Confidential (not as good as Grass, but still entertaining)

I'm going to watch a couple of these fine flicks and collapse for twelve hours...

The closest I can get to neon is the amber glow of liquid iron streaming from a tap hole illuminating millions of tiny specks of graphite floating through the smokey air at the blast furnaces... no hand job either.

pikkle,

one night I was lying in bed drunk. The Vegas neon burning through the curtains of my bedroom.
I couldn't move I was so depressed. I asked Jennifer to jerk me off, so that I could get to sleep. I was Nic Cage in Leaving Las Vegas. Waiting to come, waiting to fucking die.

It's unfortunate sometimes how we can relate to such characters...

LEAVING LAS VEGAS hits waaay too close to home. I can't go near that one until I get out of here.
One more week.

I'd have to say, my favorite cinematic depression enhancer has to be "Leaving Las Vegas." Even despite Nick Cage...

The DVD of AMELIE comes packaged in a box
the color of absinthe, a nice shade of green.
I saw the movie in the theaters during the worst of my Vegas-induced depression. Nothing could get through to me. I was so fucking down. AMELIE briefly lifted my spirits. I have the DVD. I'm looking forward to watching it in my current state of emotional wellbeing. While depressed, everything seems to be in a fog. I have gone back and revisited films that I saw during my depression just to get a better handle on them.
For instance, MULLHOLLAND DRIVE. Seeing that movie while suffering from depression was a nightmare. I felt that I was inside the movie, as fucked up as the characters. I fought the movie, fought it hard. I saw it a second time, with kallisti in San Francisco. I was in good company, so I was in better spirits, though still a bit funky. I didn't find the film disturbing the second time around. I simply found it dull.

pikkle,

in order to maintain your membership in the elitist club you must:

see one subtitled movie a week.

read at least two books of French poetry a month.

start a collection of Italian porno movie soundtracks.

develop a relationship with a twenty-something modern dancer.

drink only red wine recommended by The Wine Spectator. In the appropriate glass.

carry your belongings in a canvas bag that you received as a gift, in return for a donation, from your local educational television channel.

wear:

patchouli.

Birkenstocks.

clothing made of only natural fibers, preferrably hemp.


and here's the hard part:

drink only micro-brewed beer and smoke only American Spirit cigarettes. No more Pabst. No more Lucky Strikes.
