Wow. I committed to myself that I would stay away from blogging too much about movies. But…
Me on Fb:
FISH TANK IS ON THE LIST FOR THE PARAMOUNT 2013 SUMMER FILM SERIES OMFG I’M SO EXCITED OMFG HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL WALK OUT OMFG I’M SO EXCITED OMFG.
Seriously. I’m going to watch one showing, then stand at the back of the theater and count people as they walk out during the second showing. OMG I’M GOING TO STAGE AN EXIT POLL IN THE LOBBY. Wow, I’m excited.
For those who don’t know, Fish Tank is my favorite of Michael Fassbender’s films (X-Men: First Class obviously doesn’t count, despite the fact that Carmen and I saw a morning show and a late night show on the same day, and we laughed every time MFass was on screen and I gave myself a headache with pure excitement at the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailer). It has deeply inspired my writing by exploring the theme captured here: “If good people do bad things, are they bad people?” It is a masterpiece, and I love it, and I hope it shocks so many unsuspecting fools (although it is presented by Women in Cinema, so some people will probably be prepared…).
