ha ha ha

i need to rewatch buffao 66 now

re: brown bunny-- while i get that the movie is dealing with a partially deranged mind, just as in buffalo 66, the more poetic quality of this one vs the more narrative one in buffalo 66 doesn't completely work for me.

yes, there are some beautiful shots and scenes (not the blowjob, which was probably only added to get at harmony korine), but as a whole it doesn't work for me. i had to watch it 3 times because the first 2 i fell asleep (this is an approximate number)-- when i finally got into it okay, i appreciate some qualities of it, but i also tend to hate suprise endings of the "it was only a dream after all!" type. they're often a cheap device and a bit of a con job on the audience.

so while i'd keep a lot of the footage and scenes i'd look for a different structure to present that scenario. what she suffered, how he abandoned her, etc., is only a footnote to his solitary drivings.

then again of course if you show that at the beginning you can't really' justify the long rambling road sequences.

i think that he had a good idea, but given that the execution is by nature very difficult, the soufflé came out a bit flat in the end.

i have to see his movies after that. i completely missed the fact that "promises written in water" exists.

Do it. I need it on Blu-ray. Now.

Why Korine? In love with Chole from her Gummo and KIDS days?

All valid points. I just need to rewatch it and revaluate after the bar has been raised with Buffalo '66 . Last time I saw it was 300 years ago on Netflix, up here in Canada.

I think for me, it was the emotional state of Gallo, after the emotion and infamous non-simulated sex scene that really put the bow on the whole film.

i don't know if it's true, it's just a fantastic scenario in my mind--but chloe used to be harkor's girlfriend. then they broke up. later gallo publicly said that harkor was a piece of shit human being (likely true).
http://www.vincentgallo.com/writing/kingcrimson.html
then years later harkor's ex sucks gallo's dick on film. it just connected the dots ha ha-- completely arbitrary (i'm not paranoid but my imagination is).

i don't know. according to ebert the scene works and "is not gratuitous"

http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-brown-bunny-2004

but maybe a "revenge suck" ha ha

I didn't know Korine dated Chole! Yes indeed, likely true, but the same can be said for Gallo. No, I think you're on to something.

I love directors that give the middle finger to conformity, much like the opening scene in von Trier's 'Anti-Christ'.

On penis related news,

Was Norton's erection real in Birdman?

im not a penis connoisseur so i couldn't tell/don't remember that in birdman. i do, vaguely, but didn't pause to observe. that movie was so frantic, what comes back the most to me is the pace of the camera and the music and corridors.

but as for blowjobs, yes-- there's a power/dominance thing in the classic american blowjob posture-- man stands, woman kneels in front of his altar, services him & receives communion/flushes. the woman is subservient and gets no love, only protein as coin. i much prefer the egalitarian 69--there's true joy.

but anyway, gallo got korine's "boring connecticut girlfriend" to worship his pecker live on film. coincidence? i don't think so. it's more like "i win, fucker". which is hilarious.

von trier's antichrist was great. hard to watch, but great. i am not sure what the point of it was, but while i'm not a fan of horror movies this one i liked. reminded me a little of the documentary about fitzcarraldo where werner herzog is talking about the pain & the suffering he sees in the jungle (herzog is hilarious here-- hilariously whiny-- i've been to that jungle & it's awesome).

anyway, this other one i saw the other day:

 


WHIPLASH (some dude, 2013/14) - a wish fulfillment fable for asocial/narcissistic overachievers obsessed with performance=love, which is the main psychiatric disorder of our civilization. but forget the story which is as intense and straightforward as it is unlikely. i mean the story works, for the duration-- it's intense from beginning to end. then you think it ends and it doesn't and it hits you harder-- but the story is a sort of temporary pleasure of the film fantasy. it doesn't stick with you forever. the spectacle of the film however is highly polished. j.k. simmons as a sadistic mindfucker is great here. and the fucking EDITING is the real thing of beauty in this film. it's really the main character-- it drives everything. well worth watching for this reason.

Brown Bunny is the only film I remember walking out of. At the time, I didn't know there was a bj scene at the end, but I don't think I would've stayed for that even if I had known.

it mostly shows gallo's cock so i took no pleasure. chloe didn't seem to be having fun either.

i walked out of pasolini's gospel according to st. matthew many years ago. it was just like the movies they used to show on good friday when i was a kid. i didn't last more than 5 minutes there.

mind you, i probably would have walked out of salò as well if i had caught it in a "theatre". i had to watch that at home and in episodes. worth it in the end and with the help of good commentary & sufficient context, but nearly impossible on its own-- a long display of torture and degradation.

btw i'm not saying gallo is anything like pasolini ha ha ha... except maybe in the ultraslow pace.

i watched sunset boulevard last night because it was the first rec netflix spit out. i was reading a book about the great gatsby the other day and couldn't help but think of gatsby's ending/sunset's beginning and end. and oh norma desmond. i think ive seen sunset 100 times and it doesn't get old.

Just stumbled across the best thing Vincent Gallo ever did: Howard Stern, w/ a call in from Roger Ebert. Brown Bunny era. At first I thought it was performance art, but he's just him. I'm glad he's around.

damn, i haven't watched that in so long i have mostly forgotten it.

i spent a chunk of the morning looking at the trivia page for that movie on imdb-- it was great

i should re-watch it. billy wilder has been hovering around my space lately (started w/ his almodóvar connection)

also realized the butler guy plays a german in "la grande illusion"-- a beautiful movie, that one.
