    Vengeance Is Mine


    from david berman:

    one of these days these days will end
    through the kitchen window the light will bend
    youll be carving a pumpkin with a knife
    when someone at the table says THATS NOT WHAT I CALL A LIFE

    these are lyrics from pretty eyes. i put the song on the other day and my roommate said "has anyone ever been better at empathizing with things." i guess i'd throw michael roemer's hat into that ring.

    as good as it gets. if melodrama is beauty found in love mitigated by circumstance, this is its inverse, its autocritique, its implosion and epitome. there's so much to say about this one that i can't articulate yet but what i know is that this is todd haynes' new high watermark.

    A man has a gun. He shows you the gun, the empty clip, makes sure you know it's not loaded. He puts the gun to your head. He spends three hours spinning beautiful prose about how the gun is loaded. He uses every rhetorical trick he knows to convince you that the gun is loaded. You stay strong though, you know it isn't. He cajoles, he waxes poetic, he whispers and shouts, he's charismatic and seductive and brilliantly smart, but he's wrong. You know he's wrong. Then he pulls the trigger and blows your brains out.

    maybe the best movie ever?
