a The Transit Lounge: Movie Madness

Back in the Day: I had a quarter life crisis, headed to Osaka, Japan for the unknown–only to discover that a passport plane ride are not necessarily a ticket to escape. Some Years Later: Settled back in Oz, the man of my dreams ended up in Tokyo for work–which is how a passport and plane ride showed me home is where the heart is.

Movie Madness

I just watched quite a disturbing film this evening, Ken Park, directed by Larry Clark who also brought us Kids and Bully a few years back (Bully I am yet to see).
I should not have been surprised by the content but still it left me thinking WTF? I read an interview with Larry Clark when Ken Park was first released a few years back, amid a storm of the usual controversy surrounding his films. He said something along the lines of that people were always asking him, especially in regards to this movie, "Where do you get these ideas and storylines from? You must be warped." And he always said "Well no, unfortunately these stories come from real people, people I know." That is scary.
I thought I would follow it up with something light hearted in the vain of The Last Days of Disco - quite possibly the shitest kind of silverscreen homage to any musical era I have ever, EVER viewed. Definitely the poor man's Studio 54.
Happy viewing.
