A Movie Weekend - In Review

Inspirational, Fucked Up, Enchanted

Those are the words that I would use to describe the movies I saw this weekend.

First I saw "For the Bible Tells Me So" a documentary about how the right wing Christian conservative has used select phrases from the bible to condemn homosexuality to improve their agenda.

This movie is currently making the "Art House" theater run, and if it's in your town you should really go see it. Whether you're gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, it doesn't matter this movie will help you understand how the "church" uses only select pieces of select verses to explain how god thinks homosexuality is a sin. This was an amazing movie, but after about 45 minutes of facts things started to get muddle. It's not the movies fault, An Inconvenient Truth was the same way.

Then I saw "It is Fine. Everything is Fine." All I can say is FUCKED UP! Read about it yourself, because those descriptions make more sense than this movie. It was the weirdest most fucked up movie I have ever seen. The thing that was more intriguing than the movie was the audience. Everyone sat stoned faced and totally drawn into the movie while my friend and I sat there looking at each other - me with my hand over my mouth laughing harder than I've ever laughed and him with a look of disgust on his face.

Here's how I'd describe that movie - uhm.....I can't. Although they do show a lot of boobies and a man with cerebal palsy gets a blowjob from a woman who then straddles him and puts his penis in her vagina (yes I know the proper words for those things).

It was THE MOST DISTURBING thing I have ever seen.

Fortunately the last movie I saw as Enchanted and Enchanted was enchanting.

Have you seen it yet? You really need to! It was funny, it was sad, it was predictible but I will definitely buy it when it comes on DVD and I've already purchased the soundtrack.

I'm really going to have to get to a movie one of these days, because I really feel like I'm missing out. During the 7+ years that I've lived in Basel, I've only been to one movie.
Aaahhhh, for the good old days when I was in sales in Chicago and I'd just go to a matinée while I should have been making sales calls.
