Kam was crazy about "Gangster No. 1" - or thought she would be - so I put in on my NetFlix list. It was great. She's a huge fan of "Fight Club", so it was on the list next. Well, I finally got to them and watched one yesterday and am watching the other tonight.
"Fight Club" is a real trip - *L*! Wasn't what I thought. It's really about how men have become such "women" today - spending their time looking through Ikea catalogs, raised by women, and so on... looking for what makes them feel alive. First the Ed Norton character is into all these help groups for survivors of various diseases. Then he meets the Brad Pitt character - *G*. It is so bizarre... you should check out some of the trivia on imdb.com. It's quite interesting. Of course, it's "wrong"... but interesting.
So tell me, folks... as I'm watching both of them, the homoeroticism is absolutely palpable. Is that just because I read too much slash, or is it really there? *G*
Hey... Kisa! It's got Jared Leto. Although I haven't recognized him yet. *G*
[ETA: "Where you going with this, IKEA boy?" *G* I know realize that Jared was the "beautiful one"... and I've seen the twist in the plot... and, whoa... it's a doozy! FUCK! (pardon my language) Can you say "Twelve Monkeys"? Whoa. Man, this guy has a high tolerance for pain!
*L*!!!!!! Just saw the "bit of intercut porn" - *L*! This is... brilliantly bizarre! *G* Thanks, Kam.
