The midnight show tonight was a documentary about the word "fuck." It's pretty well-done with animation by Bill Plympton and 30-some interviews with random people like Bill Maher and Sam Donaldson and Ice-T and Ron Jeremy. While it was good and I enjoyed myself, jarrette had a good observation that there needed to be either way more than 30 interviews or more of a concerted thematic or subjective reasoning behind their appearance in the movie. A minor note though... for the most part it was a good time. I'm glad too because at some point this week I was in line next to one of the guys who made this and I told him I'd be seeing it and was looking forward to it. Now I don't have any guilt for not liking the guy's movie.
A few beats sort of skirt the same issues as This Film is Not Yet Rated... and I really think some of the people who worked on this are big Howard Stern fans because not only did Stern's stuff with the FCC come up but they also played a few sound clips that Stern's repeating a lot since moving over to satellite (namely the Pat O'Brien voicemail tapes and that one recording of some baseball manager talking about how much he hates the fans)...
So I actually saw 5 movies today. If i had gotten up and went out to see Summercamp it would've been six but oh freakin well... I'm pretty exhausted just from the five and I still have two more days to get through. The end is in sight though... weirdo music people are now clogging the streets. Next week will seem so weird.
