a movie for grownups

So last night I watched the movie Good Dick on netflix instant. It was strange and awkward and creepy, but it's STICKING with me like CRAZY. I think I know why, too. Anyway, if you enjoy strange indie romantic comedy fare that isn't actually about romance so much I don't think, and has a small cast of impressively realistic characters, you should watch it. It kind of punched me in the gut about four hours after I watched it. I went "oh. OH. That's why I kept watching it. I GET IT now." I don't know if people who haven't worked weird little jobs in retail shops for dying industries with family-strange coworker level relationships and have had lifelong problems with wanting too much and impulse control will like it. >_>

I was actually thinking of watching that but wasn't sure if it was worth it. Now I may devote my time.

yeah I saw it, and I was sooo baffled by it. That girl was just so mean and bizarre and I didn't know why the poor guy stayed with her. It kind of depressed me because he was homeless and she was so messed up. It's good to know that it at least made sense to some people.

It *was* depressing, and she *was* mean and bizarre. I don't know, that's kind of a lot of why I liked it. I've known or been like all the people in the movie. I don't know that my movie watching experience was *fun* but it was *enjoyable*, in a non-standard definition of the term enjoyable. I guess I like to see stories where one character's insistence on isolation is repeatedly removed, either willingly or unwillingly. And I identified really strongly with the poor guy; this probably makes me a creepy ex-druggy sexually-pushy whiny stalker, but okay.
