If Taxi Driver was a priest. That’s all I have to say about this physically quiet yet subtextually violent movie from Paul Schrader, writer of two of my favourite films, Taxi Driver and Bringing out the Dead. The writing and acting from Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried is amazing. The only things I didn’t like was the somewhat boring camerawork and some ambiguous scenes towards the end. Overall one of the best of the year. •

I’m probably going to lose followers because of this, but Merry Christmas everyone. Another year, another inch closer to the sanitarium. •

Every time I finish something I’ve  written I like to make it a tradition to pour a glass of scotch or bourbon and put on “Stairway to Heaven” from IV as I type out the last page or two, this time on a very old LP. So old now that the bloke on the cover is nearly faded. The main reason for doing this was because the first screenplay I ever finished had a scene at the end that fit Stairway perfectly, but I kept doing it after. It seems odd now, but I get a comfort out of having a particular ritual that I like to do whilst writing. Anyone else have a particular creative process or writing ritual they like to do when they’re getting creative?

Just watched a Cage Rage Double Feature. Up first was “Mandy”. I have @horrorheadx to thank for this one. This was absolutely beautiful and insane at the same time. It felt like a 2 hour length Alice Cooper music video. Whoever the director is, he definitely has a vision which I love. I recommend this movie to anyone who can handle sleepy hypnotic visuals listening to what looks like Iggy Pop’s brother in one scene, to Cage watching a Hellraiser/Del Toro-like monster doing cocaine and watching porn in another. It’s an acquired taste and I hath acquired it.
•
This was followed by “Mom and Dad.” Another 80s-esque film imitating the subgenre of “my parents might secretly be monsters” (Stepmonster, Serial Mom etc.) this was a weird one. It was wildly frenetic and tone hearing-impaired. I had a lot of questions after viewing it like, what was the source of the violence, what happened at the end. But at the end of the day methinks this was just an excuse for Cage to go full rage. This is definitely shown in a Home Alone inspired booby trap causing him to go flying through the air and get up with fruit loops stuck to his face. Shocking and hilarious at the same time I cared little for using my brain with this one. •
But I’m glad I watched these two back to back because they’re kind of alike. Apart from Cage, they both boast an 80s genre in which they homage, the other performances are as nuts as the leading man’s, and there’s a lot of graphic violence juxtaposed with silly humour.

I’ve decided November’s #botm is going to be relatively short, why with my lack of energy lately and I’ve had a sweet tooth for short stories lately. Plus I have no idea what December’s book is going to be. Maybe after I read this I might watch the film because I haven’t seen it in some time and I remember it being bizarrely brilliant. Also excuse the crudity of the dog and Anakin Skywalker figurines but I feel it works 😅

I feel like my stories would just sound like unused episodes of Seinfeld 
Jerry: She had no door?
George: She had NO door Jerry!
Jerry: Completely Doorless?
George: comPLETELY DOORLESS! *Kramer slaps money down* I’m out!

*Semi Spoilers*
Another movie marked off the swine list. This was another brilliant movie. Visually awesome. Robert Pattinson’s performance is like nothing he’s ever done before as Connie, a manipulative and tactical guy doing some pretty clever things to get past the law and break his handicapped brother out of jail. My only gripe is that the brother was hardly in it and the marketing definitely mislead me into thinking they’d be on the run throughout the movie. But it does make up for it, however with the dynamics he has with a guy named Ray and a young girl from the ghetto which I really enjoyed. I had my doubts about this movie because I saw the Safdie brother’s last movie “Heaven Knows What” and was left disappointed, but with this script, the performances, the usual red stained visuals and the video game-like soundtrack, I’m glad I saw this. I was slightly let down when the brothers didn’t end up reuniting but I guess the sacrifice made by Connie in itself was better. •

So tonight’s movie was “Lake Mungo”, an Australian mockumentary horror film from 2008. Honestly, I’m surprised this isn’t as well known as it should be. It’s creepy, horrific, bizarre, heartbreaking, and fascinating. Apart from a couple of JFK conspiracy type speed humps which I thought was going to lead down some time wasting paths, I actually thought it was a brilliant, unsettling movie, logic be damned. It’s probably one of the best Australian horror movies I’ve ever seen, maybe the one of the best Australian movies, period. See it wherever possible

Catching up on some old favourites now that I’ve developed a taste for them. Don’t know how I feel about the new and improved covers though. They’re just not as creepy, even if they are colourful. I used to love for the goosebumps covers. Now... I don’t know.

Just a segment from the novel I’m writing “Dream Life” where one of the main characters has a restoration of faith rather than dismissing himself as crazy. •
The picture doesn’t belong to me but it’s what inspired me to write this
•
“His face contorted with a realisation. I can tell. I know because he knew. Like any dream that you at first couldn’t remember all the details to, but immediately remember whilst doing some inane thing like grocery shopping. He knows, and for the first time since knowing him I’m no longer looking at his life through his eyes. I’m stepping back, but it has hit me. I know because he knows. While he was shivering in the middle of a winter’s day in the middle of the forest, on his knees, with a gun pointed at the back of his head, he saw it. Grazing only a couple dozen feet away from him. If it weren’t for movement he would’ve just mistaken it for the snow covered trees, but he saw it. A zebra in a snowy forest, the most unusual thing he has ever seen in any time and place. This surreal experience coming back to him and he now knows that there is more to life. More then just random chaos, and that everything has a pattern and a reason, even if the reason is pointless to one but valued to another. This was what he saw before he was murdered and now he is willing to believe anything I tell him.”
