))<>(( Forever.

So for weeks Megan has been saying You have to see this movie Me and You and Everyone We Know, like, immediately. You must run and go see this movie today. Did you see Me and You and Everyone We Know yet? No. Well you need to go see it immediately. I had read the great reviews and wanted to see it, but we don’t tend to drop the twenty bucks more than once a month and plus we’ve also been massively busy of late and so I did not go see it immediately but I did put it on my Netflix queueueue immediately and still I did not watch it immediately because we’ve been out every night since it came on Friday. Last night we watched it.

THIS IS THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER OF ALL TIME.

Or at least, as I said to Ben, my total favorite movie I’ve seen in years. We had to stop it at one point we were laughing so hard. Ben was literally folded in two, laughing. (The cryptic title of this post will make you giggle all over again if you’ve seen it, and will make no sense if you haven’t, and don’t cheat, cuz I’ll bet anything it’s somewhere on the internetting.) I really don’t want to say too much about it because I just want you to be a blank slate like I was, so I must urge you to do what Megan said, rent or go see it immediately, even though I did not follow that advice myself, I should have, frankly, I am fully aware that you’re reading this right now and not going to see it immediately. Honestly I was so excited about this movie I couldn’t sleep last night because I couldn’t wait to post about it.

Am I right? I shouldn’t even ask. I know I am. I’m totally right. Now I need to put Miranda July on my letter list.

I love Miranda July's work. I've only read her stuff in Fence and elsewhere but, she's great. I have NOT seen this yet, but will go check it out. And finally did see Tarnation which gave me some weird dreams later that night. But still a great and horribly depressing film.

I like this sentence:

"So I must urge you to do what Megan said."

You and Me...

Just a wonderful film. I second and third what Betsy and Megan said and agree that you should all go see this film.

i rented it last night and will watch it tonight.

i heard a piece miranda july read on npr, i think it was on the show "the next big thing", you should try to find it on npr.org, it was so lovely i drove around the block in the rain a few times so i could hear the rest.

Yay! Someone listened to me! You won't regret it!

maybe it was because i saw it by myself and i was really kind of in a sad place (have been all summer/fall), but i didn't find it all that funny. i found it a pretty sad movie. i guess i shouldn't say any more, either, hey?

but, i don't know. although i like to try and be all bad ass and independent and see movies by myself, it's hard on me. i want to talk and discuss afterward, and ultimately, it does make me feel pretty isolated and lonely.

My favorite line from the movie:

"There would be no e-mail if it weren't for AIDS"

Betsy said...

Ha! There were so many great ones...
Smussy - it was as sad as it was funny to me, I think that's why I loved it so much. I'm sorry you've been having a hard time. It can be really hard to connect - which is what I got from this movie. I left feeling it was a miracle anyone ever connects at all.

That whole movie was awesome. Really really cool. I love the line:

"Is that a Bengal Tiger?"

he he it's so good. I saw it a couple of days ago. Love it. Everyone MUST watch it, I agree.
