Vanilla Sky . . . I Live . . . for . . . [Mar. 17th, 2004|01:00 am]
[In the Moment |touchedtouched]
[Special Music |Haunting DVD Menu Music for Vanilla Sky]

I live for films like Vanilla Sky.

Jacob's Ladder, AI, What Dreams May Come, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Requiem for a Dream, A Clockwork Orange, Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, many more that are on the horizon of my memory, they move me internally, like all great films do.

I forgot about my laundry with Vanilla Sky.

That's a pretty good film, one capable of such feats.

Jim Carrey is a wild card. I've enjoyed his latest works. I'm sure that his latest performances have been much better . . . I didn't like The Mask very much, but the difference between films like The Mask and The Cable Guy against some of his finer works, like the original Ace Ventura and most notably, The Truman Show . . . well, the latter are films that shine brilliantly.

I haven't seen Waking Life . . . how was it?

it's really interesting in terms of both the content and the format. it's a little bit difficult to explain, but it deals with consciousness and dreams and wakefulness and things like that. it was filmed like a regular movie and then illustrators went over the film and made this animation from it. it's very unique, i think. i also think, based on this post, you might really enjoy it.

That sounds like a hot ticket, so hot that I will have to look for a film that sounds like, from your description, a similar style to that of the music video, "Take on Me," by A-Ha.
