Being John Malkovich

Last night we watched Being John Malkovich for the third time. This is a film I would easily list in my top 100 must-sees (heavens knows, Malkovich is. ;-) Aside from the ever-fascinating Malkovich, I loved the wackiness of the story, the hilarious "menage" scene, the sexy puppeteering, and the very sexy Catherine Keener. But I have to admit that on third viewing I discovered a strange phenomenon. It freaked me out somewhat. LOL The first time I watched it I thought it was the most amazingly surreal film, just brilliant screenwriting and acting. The second time I knew where it was going, so I was in it for the laughs. Third time? Third time around I noticed how much seriously £^&$ed up stuff there was going on in those people’s heads/lives. LOL Got to admire a film that views like peeling back the layers of an onion.

In other news, it's pouring with rain here after a beautiful couple of (almost summer) days. I’ve been busy writing today and getting on well with my current fantasy project. I also heard that I sold another short, which is always good motivation. GETTING GOOD DESIGNER OUTLET will appear in the next Black Lace Wicked Words anthology, Sex and Shopping. Wooohoo!!
