Several Random Observations at the Culmination of Reading all 354 Pages of the "Now Playing: Movies" Thread
I'm all about context, and while I'm a "film guy," for whatever reason I've stayed out of this thread. I regret it now, because this is an awesome thread and has loads of great tips, observations, writing, criticism, and all around lulz.
1. Paves rented and watched an Emerson, Lake and Palmer DVD. Further proof this kid is a visionary.
2. Artem's cinematic coming of age by watching a stultifying barrage of nothing but slow-paced Criterion re-issues definitely constituted a humor.
3. I have much more context now on the Held-Tony drama and now better appreciate that in making an offhanded diss on Jarmusch to second Tony, I stepped on a live one.
4. Caley and Ogawa are two posters I'll be paying a lot more attention to.
5. Held has seen a shitload of movies.
6. Ben Welsh is sorely missed here at the SOMB.
7. I still need to see Primer, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Bedazzled and The Fall.
The God of language forgives all crimes.
