btw i can recommend a censor-safe, cinema-related curseword substitute, which makes reference to a certain overhyped starlet: "GODDEMI MOORE!!"
swaffy: "checked the local rental store & library"
-ehhhxcellent! if i can pique y'all's curiosity enough to get you to want to actually check into some of these flix (& then we can chitchat em up here), so much the better! (OPIE & andyville? personally i prefer EDIE & andyville ) i may have a partial solution to your gummoville blues; i continue to score various vhs flix i dig supercheap, for donation to a nearby library. if you wish, we can start up a VTape club, in that i can send em to you first so you can watch, then you send em to someone else here who might wanna see, etc etc, till full circle, either returned to me or sent straight to said library if might be interested lmk

gsj: "the secret to peace and serenity in ones life is a black and decker with a 3/8's bit"
-i'll have to pass that lil tip onto b'jr haven't seen Requiem yet but lookin forward to it cuz Pi rocked! imo you read too much into alleged antisemitic subtext, a la alvy singer ("he distinctly said 'jew'; i asked if he'd seen the new bergman & he said 'no, Jew?' " ); never occured to me, cuz money's power, & who Doesn't like power? as i recall, what i really want you & swaffy to see is High Fidelity, cuz of the music & mixtape fussiness
"anyone who thinks heroin is chic"
-idunno if heroin's chic, but some of the people who Do it Certainly are
rt: "amateur film critic (as we all are)"
-yeah, but some of us are more amateurish than others right outta the gate, dissent; excellent :happy: feel free to elaborate about these posturing 14-yr-old gummoshockers (i saw korine on letterman once; interestingly, he didn't come across as too much Older than 14 fun interview though)
not sure what "safety" has to do with connoisseurship, but no need to cite filmschool credentials, we all diss each other's tastes here regardless anyhoo, as a film student, what influences do you like to draw from?
jdah: no worries, just cuz I'm not a big horror guy don't mean you can't discuss 'em here. who knows, you could probably even write up Porn if you could figure out a sufficiently discreet & clinical way to do it plz elaborate re your distaste for grant, he's never bugged me much. i keep confusing Bridget Jones Diary w/Princess Diaries
if "quatre-vingt-dix-neuf" is french, and "neunante-neuf" is belgian, is "neuf-neuf" french poodleian?

tip: the Bravo cable channel is not a dependable option for catching flix: b'jr & i caught High Art & it'd been all cut up i suspect indifilmchannel's the same story, esp. if they have commercial breaks
