WE GOT A WINNER! (Be excited! Be-Be-Excited!) (nsr)
I made the mistake of watching Requiem for a Dream the other night. Don't make the same mistake that I did. But if you have already, go check out it's website:
Great time waster trying to navigate throught the labrynthine Flash layers, probably the coolest interactive Flash site I've ever seen. Reminds me of "choose your own adventure" books.

Mmmmmm...Jennifer Connelly...Arty drooooool...
I'll never forget the night I saw that movie. It was playing at an indie theater in Palo Alto since it was NC-17 and none of the big chains would touch it. So a bunch of friends and I got together and saw it. It was completely sold old, which isn't really a surprise since Palo Alto is geek central and Aronofsky made Pi. Anyway, I don't think I'll ever see the scene coming out from that movie again. It was nearly silent and everyone had a look of that went beyond mere shock and horror on their faces. You'd look into someone else's eyes and that would say it all. And everyone had nearly the same expression. There just weren't words for it. That flick is disturbing, but great."I knew in an instant that the three dollars I had spent on wine would not go to waste."

I see it on the shelf at my local video store all the time. I guess I'll have to check it out.

Hubert Selby, Jr. was one of the greatest American authors of the past century. He's gone through so many hells in his life and somehow survived them all, barely. I have tons of respect for that man. The director did a tits job bringing that book to the screen, it's one of my favorite movies. I don't know why someone wouldn't like the movie from a directing/acting/writing/camerawork/editing standpoint. It's all amazing.
The most disturbing thing I've ever read that he wrote (I don't remember what book it was) was about this character who would go to the graveyard and look for used condoms behind gravestones. He would then suck them dry.
