so last night i saw two movies. One good, one disturbing and yet good.
O Brother Where Art Thou? Good movie. Very good. Lots of great imagery, symbolism...and the plot! wow. good acting too.
But I'm a Cheerleader! distrubing. it's about trying to "cure" homosexuality. There is an intervention, a boarding school program designed to brainwash gay and lesbian teenagers into being "normal"...including simulations....and multiple instances of condemning rhetoric. However, the actual point of the movie is that you are who you are, and no one can change that, and it's not bad. That is the good part. lol. where the two links below came from is a discussion that resulted following the movie. There is one scene when Megan (the main character) is masturbating while saying her affirmations about resisting temptation, etc...and i remembered the "trend" from last year of posters and whatnot that say "every time you masturbate, God kills a kitten"...and they include this poster. so anyway...i was looking on the web to find it to show my friend Miranda and we found those. a "drama in one act" and a list of how to cure yourself of the evils of masturbation. Very Funny. Includes things like putting small cameras in your room and then having them feed ot your neighbors TVs...lol. anyway.
