and I thought Brokeback Mountain was going to destroy me

Jason, Paul, and I saw C.R.A.Z.Y. lastnight. It is a really good film... it has already won a prize at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will probably take best foreign language film at the Oscars. I'm even going to take liberties with copyright law and post the movie poster, because I really want people to see this movie.



This is the best Canadian film I've ever seen. Director Jean-Marc Vallée has created something so true to the identity and sometimes tortured experience of a young homosexual that it's almost hard to believe he's not gay himself. I left this movie in such a state of catharsis that it took me a good 10 minutes to pull myself together. (Jason and Paul, I'm sorry I was such a mess.)

I agree, the best Canadian movie I've seen. I couldn't fall asleep last night -- kept thinking about it.

It's just nice to have a Canadian film without ejaculating typewriters or people having sex in car wrecks.

Well Mitz, I'd be lying if I said that Marc-André Grondin didn't have one of the cutest butts I've seen in years... [sigh]. I need to get myself to Montreal for a weekend.

Remember this:

The Colonel BACKHANDS Ricky so hard it sends the boy sprawling.

COLONEL

I swear to God, I will throw you out of this house and never look at you again.

RICKY

(taken aback)

You mean that?

COLONEL

Damn straight I do. I'd rather you were dead than be a fucking faggot.

A beat. Ricky suddenly smiles. He gets up.

RICKY

You're right. I suck dick for money.

COLONEL

Boy--

RICKY

Two thousand dollars. I'm that good.

COLONEL

Get out.

RICKY

And you should see me fuck. I'm the best piece of ass in three states.

COLONEL

(explodes)

Get out!! I don't ever want to see you again!!

I'd go see it if Jake Gyllenhaal was in it.

madamerouge said...

Shora, the actor who plays Zac (the gay son) is totally adorable in an early Keanu Reeves (My Own Private Idaho) kind of way... I guarantee you'd like him.

Jason... how much do you love our Alan Ball? Remember Nate "teaching" David stuff on Six Feet Under?

Jason said...
