we protect us
Not sure what I thought this movie was gonna be, but it’s a comfort to know now my hunch about it being a surrealist parable about reconciling the self with the other with philosophy with identity with compassion and a mid aughts corporate consumer culture satire to boot was correct. Got that all from the title and from the trailer I saw on apple dot com slash trailers about 15/16 years ago.
I think I can safely say.... I do heart fuckabees :~)
Heard joke once:
Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels burdened by the bourgeoisie's capacity for violence and need for control.
Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The comedic director Yorgos Lanthimos made a new film. Go see it. That should give you comfort."
Man bursts into tears. Says,
"But doctor...I am Yorgos Lanthimos."
