    Exclamation

    Last night I saw a surrealist '30s silent movie set to avant-garde, retrospective jazz. One of the best films I've seen in years:

    Read this:

    I felt this movie like emotional braille, 9 December 2005
    9/10
    Author: nonalaurie from United States

    I saw Borderline several years ago on AMC. I've been looking for it ever since. It was haunting: visual, textural, sensual. This movie took me somewhere like a dream and I didn't care where. I will never forget the curtain blowing in the breeze. I still remember the way it made me tilt my head. I remember my facial expression when I saw it. I didn't know what had happened when the movie was over, but I find life is that way. It didn't bother me. The unfairness of the ultimate rejection of an innocent character strikes me as sadly real. I loved the faces, the way the camera dwelt upon them. The camera gazed at the set with the unfocused eyes of a daydreamer. Borderline was real to me in a way movies aren't. It was exactly the lack of explanation, color, sharpness that made it enter my consciousness like a thief in the night. I love this movie. Someday I will own it.

    I also saw Paul Newman making me hate him in Hud. Some pretentious camera work, but a script of wisdom and importance.

    And I saw Satyajit Ray's (seemingly) take on Bergman's cathartic, Wild Strawberries. Some excellent dream sequences, and surprisingly meditative despite the scene and characters, but not a film to fall in love with.

    Default "Burn After Reading".

    I am just about to go and see, "Burn After Reading", up at the Manuka cinema.

    Now I want you to be here when I return. But I want you to realise this - when I see a movie I enter a trance so you need to know how to treat someone in a trance.

    And it is simple - you just treat them as a child you like.

    There is no need to be smart. There is no need to be analytical. There is no need to be argumentative or even defensive. All you need to do is to listen to me as though I were a favourite child.

    It will be good for you.

    See you soon.

    Comrade MBTI Centralers, my God, I've just seen a weird movie. And I am feeling weird.

    The problem is the movie was about some silly people who didn't know they were silly. But I identified with them. I could see I am silly but I don't know I am silly. And I can see how silly all my posts to MBTIc are silly as well.

    But worse we sillies tried to blackmail some very serious CiA agents. And even worse, we even tried to use some very serious KGB agents against CIA.

    But even worse some of the silly people were killed - a couple of them.

    And even worse, I walk past the Russian Embassy every night and I usually say hello to them through the fence. But the Russians always pause for a moment before they reply and say hello back. But why do they pause - what are they thinking while they are pausing. Are they checking me out?

    But even worse, when I walk past the American Embassy at about 10 PM at night, it's even creepier. There is no one about and no cars at all. The American Embassy in on a hill and you can see for hundreds of yards in every direction. So the uniformed marine on duty can see me walking towards him for at least 100 yards. And as I pass him, I wave and say, G'day. But he completely ignores me. He doesn't pause like the Russians - he give no sign of my presence at all.

    I know the Grenadier Guards at Buckingham Palace won't give any sign even when they are tickled by American tourists. And of course I wouldn't tickle a marine on duty anyway.

    So you can see I am feeling very weird anyway.

    But in the movie the only person to get what they wanted was a very silly women who got the CIA to pay for her cosmetic surgery.

    So the movie kind of had a happy ending.

    But I don't know what to make of it all - you will have to see the movie yourselves.

    So it was a kind of funny but scary movie. But it made me realise what a silly person I am. And I don't even know I am silly.

    But tell me - I trust you - do you think I am silly too?

    Default Don Quixote and Don Corleone

    I am so influenced by the movie I see. If I were not a silly billy, I would choose sensible movies, uplifting movies even beautiful movies.

    I remember even as a little boy I would try to imitate the heros on the screen and fall in love with the heroines.

    I guess I like a movie that suspends my disbelief. And mostly they do. Sometimes I get bored. And sometimes I get embarrassed by being so impressionable.

    But I am the same with books. First of all I fall in love with a book. Then I digest it. And only after that I analyse it and judge it.

    If I were to analyse and judge as I first read a book or saw a film, I would not be able to fully take it in.

    And its the same with people. First I take them in. Then I try to understand them. And only finally analyse and judge.

    Mostly it's fun being a silly billy - but sometimes I scare myself or get things out of proportion.

    So I try and read different books and see different movies in the hope of finding balance. I've been Don Quixote and Don Corleone. As Don Quixote, I followed my dream. And as Don Corleone, I followed hard reality.

    But most of all I like to share my silliness with others.

    Perhaps I can persuade you to be silly with me. And we can both be silly billies.

    But seriously, would you prefer me as Don Quixote or Don Corleone? After all each of them is a Don.
