I rented this (and Big Lebowski) last night and loved it...great performances all around. Buscemi was great. The dude w/ the farmer tan was killing me.

and yes, the girls could both get it...something fierce

the funny thing is, i just saw Lebowski for the first time, about two weeks ago. yeah, call me late
now, i'm waiting until i get back from spain and have my dvd player again to buy a copy.

i've been watching it incessantly over the last two days

i'm sure scarlett johanssen is legal..and i'm sure she can get it...

thora seems stacked regardless

I liked the whole movie (tampon in a teacup had me rolling) but I just didnt understand the ending.

SPOILER (but then if you read the title of this post you prolly knew I would spoil it, and eff it if you havent seen it yet i should have the write to spoil it.)
Ok, so that old man waits for years to catch a bus, but then she gets there and waits for a couple of minutes and it shows up. What? someone please clue me in.

I give rappers the biz for being m-izza-a-archaic.

David Denby ends his review by saying that the film "even suggests that she (Enid) has a destiny, and this is an unwelcome surprise, since most of us would wish no other future for Enid the brilliant comic-book invention but to be herself, a hilariously morose teen-ager, forever and ever." Now, admittedly, Denby was contrasting the world of film with the world of comic books, and saying that the film created a "psychologically accountable" world that the comic book did not. So I see his point. But I fundamentally disagree with him that the film suggests that she has a future. To me, the film suggests that she kills herself. And I don't know how Denby would have come out on the ending if he had interpreted it as I did.

Of going off somewhere without telling anybody, just packing up and leaving, her "#1 fantasy", like she says to Seymour. But maybe I'm just too literal.

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

David Denby is a pretty smart guy, he writes movie reviews for a living (in part), he's well educated and well read, and he thought the same thing as you. The reason that I thought this was about suicide was: The bus stop had been discontinued, and the only person who waited there throughout the film was someone who was presented to the audience as someone who was out of touch with reality and rather hopeless. I guess also the fact that I didn't really see beyond the horizon for Enid and had a hard time figuring out even where she would go once her options had been cut off...

But you know, art is certainly subject to interpretation...

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

that Enid was just fullfilling her fantasy, but the bus stop being discontued i guess was Zwigoff & Clowes way of leaving the ending open to interpretation.

and im glad that they didnt go with the origonal ending with Seymour hanging himself. I liked the whole thing with his mother asking what he wants for dinner and the shrink having that "god what a loser" face when he left

Could someone explain this movie to me? A while back I read the post that I think is now archived about this movie. It got tons of glowing reviews and tons of people thought it was funny. So I tried to rent it and it would never be in. Finally I was able to get it on pay-per-view and it was a huge disappointment. I couldn't stand Enid and I thought she was a serious jerk and I, to this day don't get the ending. The laughs in this thing were nonexistent.

come back when you are jaded, disillusioned, worldweary, depressed and/or disenchanted. it will make so much more sense to you when you can be described with one of these adjectives or one similar to them.

I actually am those things and more, it's just that Enid was such a bitch. It's one thing to be all of those things, it's another to take that out on others.

I went to bed right after it finished, at like 9 pm on a Saturday. I'm not sure why it had such a profound effect, I'll have to see it again. And for some reason I remeber the colour as sticking out, but I don't know why I think that either.
