12.06.05Netflix Consider me humbled. To think of how I thought of myself in terms of movie knowledge before I moved here to Austin. Since then, I've been saying this is the best town for movies in the Country. I now have to revise that to the best movie town in the country for me. This film shows how NYC, of course, kicks Austin's butt as far as showing art films are concerned. This film also shows that certain film buffs are in a whole other universe than me. The subjects in this doc take things to a whole new level. I think the only person in this town that's like that is maybe Harry Knowles... although I've still heard/read him talk about a movie or two that he hasn't seen (yet)... i don't think even Tim league or Quint or Lars can stand up to these guys in this doc. It's like too much though... they openly give in and let it control their lives. It's still kinda scary though how much I identify with a lot of the things they say. There's a deleted scene on the DVD where each film geek gives their personal ethos as far as where to sit in the theater and I have had that exact same conversation before in just as much detail (i.e. way too much)... but these guys still put me to shame. BUT, I still think I like it here more than I would in NYC... and they don't have the Alamo there so really in the end they are big limited-to-popcorn-and-candy losers.
