How Come You Always Ask the Hot Girl to Talk about Sharks Press

M & I have a new series of poems up at Dear Camera. "Go check 'em out already!"--Billy Collins
These poems are a section from our chapbook, Force, Proximity, Repulsion, which will release sometime in the future with Cinematheque Press, which I'm equally pumped about.

I'll be honest, we've powered through quite a few movies recently. No pattern emerges to me:

Lady Vengeance:


The Friends of Eddie Coyle:


New In Town (I would say that during this movie, every 5 minutes or so, M would say, "What is wrong with her face?"):

At the end of the movie we had to do a google search for "what is wrong with Renee Zellweger's face" to see if anyone else knew why it was puffy, shiny, and stuck to her skull.

Shadow of a Doubt (this Hitchcock was by far one of the creepier movies I've seen recently, mostly because of the dialogue given to the young female lead):


The Distiguished Gentleman:

This movie came at the transitional phase in Eddie Murphy's career where he consistently made Jewish jokes, right before he traded these jokes in for a female fat suit.

Army of Shadows. This movie was amazing:


Any suggestions for movies to rent?

Rent "Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession", a documentary about the independent subscription movie channel that was the precursor to HBO, and its dark & eccentric founder. Not only will you see a fascinating doc, but you'll end up with a long list of rental ideas, as dozens of classic, obscure, and forgotten films are discussed in the movie. Highly recommended.

my favorite sexist hitchcock quote is from rear window

grace kelly to jimmy stewart: "let me slip into something more comfortable."

jimmy stewart's eyebrows raise, tent begins to pitch.

grace kelly: "the kitchen."

Lady Vengeance...intense. Shadow of a Doubt is my favorite pre-50s Hitchcock film.
