Happiness

Happiness: ****
Sometimes I find it hard to grade movies like this. Like The Squid and The Whale. I mean, granted, they are very different but, they are both sort of artsy movies that show us a glimpse into the fucked up lives of other people. There is lots of come in this movie. I was a little shocked. And grossed out. But that scene on the couch with Dylan Baker and his kid, where he answers all the questions. Fucking wow. He blew my mind. Totally solid performance by everyone in the film but, that scene was so raw and emotional. (are you (Charlie, Jesse, and Rhys)going to make really bad jokes about that last sentence? )


anywho I want to see Ratatouille in the worst way. Pixar+Brad Bird=Goddamnfantasticnessously happy Jess but, I have to figure out how to pay the rent before I can go galumphing off to the movies.

Next up from Netflix: The Last Kiss. Weeds Season 2 is living at the Top of my Q until it releases!

Happiness totally left me feeling dirty all over.

Kudos to finishing Indigo Prophecy and picking up Psychonauts, by the way. Those are two of my very favorite games in the world. Beware the Milkman!

I, for one, find very little funny about Happiness (except for the last thirty seconds with the kid, the dog, a the balcony)

Also, you should put Shortbus in your queue.

Well.. I guess it was funny in that way that: it's one of those things you laugh at because it makes you uncomfortable and it's so fucked up and some of the characters say the craziest shit! Like the 2 sisters haing lunch and talking about the third. How these 2 sisters have 'it all'. It's funny that they think that.... and that they keep saying it!
