We must blend into the choir; sing ecstatic with the whole...

I went to see Funny Games on Wednesday night, and while I'm really not ready to talk about my experience yet (my heart is nearing its fourth and final trauma-induced attack), I engaged in my usual post-movie IMDB stalking rampage yesterday afternoon. I was familiar with nearly everyone in the movie except for Brady Corbet who, aside from various episodes of "24," appears in the video for the Bright Eyes song, "At the Bottom of Everything." It also features his Thirteen costar Evan Rachel Wood. And in my humble opinion, it's pretty great. I realize I'm a late-adapter in some arenas, so if you saw this a few years ago, good job. I guess I was too busy trolling IMBD... memorizing the middle names of the cast of Norbit.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and DISAGREE WITH YOU. (Shirt. Can we still be soulmates?)

I'm sups fond of the song (minus obligatory coffee sip noise at the beginning of the track (really Connor? We get that you are trying to evoke the feeling of a 'sesh' but really? A SIPPY NOISE? Really?)

But Evan Rachel Wood will never rub me the right way.

However fuzzy, felt stop animation more than makes up for it.

So I throw my hands up.

(Previous comment deleted by me. I leave it to you to wonder what horrible things I could have said...)

Because I love Muppets, and therefor all things felt, I think it's the stop animation that did me in.

I dunno, there's just something comforting about certain doom. What does that say about me? I'm going to go consult my Myers Briggs.
