Overheard

Overheard exiting the theater tonight @ Caché (Hidden) (2nd viewing)
Contemplative Teenager w/ Parents: "I... um. I feel like I needed more answers."
Honest Man w/ Bad Taste: "If we were watching that at home I would have shut it off 10 minutes in"
Smart Male: "That was brilliant"
Smart Redundant Female: "so brilliant."
American Woman: "That had no plot. Ugh!"
French Woman: "C'était stupide"

That was funny.

You know what else is funny? GRIZZLY MAN. I just rented it, and omg, it's fantastic. Thank you, Nat, I never would've seen this if you hadn't recommended it. It is brilliant. Werner Herzog is my hero.

hah! I was at Rumour Has It last week and a lady in the row behind me said "God, Americans make baaad movies" I thought it was funny, if only true about 50% of the time.

When I saw it at the Landmark Sunshine, a disgruntled middle-aged woman remarked "That was THE. WORST. MOVIE. I have ever seen."

I couldn't help but simply laugh. A few younger woman in the theater right after seemed more appreciative but a bit confused asking "Did anyone get that ending? Were we SUPPOSED to get that ending?"

My dad, who was with me and surely isn't the arthouse type, at least found it interesting and said that it managed to "make him think." :)

I saw "Dogville" in Amsterdam months before it opened in the U.S., and during the intermission, a Netherlander leaned over to me and said, "As an American, this must be pretty hard to take, right?"
