I suspect it's because Mike Mills is COMPLETELY INSANE.
Anyway, Thumbsucker comes out on DVD tomorrow.
I'm not sure why an article choosing Constantine and the #2 God vs. The Devil films and then proceed to ream it, but it's worth mentioning just for that phrase.
Meanwhile, looks like Keanu has been enjoying some indie music and pancakes recently.
Good for him......and his socks.
Looks like I'm going to have to adjust the countdown (and fix the graphic.)
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I've discovered a new way to stimulate my psychic powers. I simply eat large amounts of wasabi, the bracing horseradish-like paste that's traditionally served with sushi. Its astringent potency seems to crack open an inter-dimensional wormhole in my brain through which news of the future pours in. After meditating on the astrological factors coming to bear on you, I ingested the stuff to give my divinations some extra oomph. Here's what I came up with: You need the equivalent of the wasabi approach right now--some gentle shock, self- administered, that will extend the range of your normal perceptions.
Keanu put on a suit but didn't shave for the Palm Springs event, but he still looks dashing. Charlize looks freaking gorgeous as usual too.
Tonight at the Palm Springs Film Festival, Keanu will present Charlize Theron with the Desert Palm Achievement Award.
Evidently, Charlize was given the choice as to who would present the award to her and she asked that he do it, which is really sweet.
It's a black tie gala so hopefully in the morning we'll have some photos of the hottest penguin ever.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 2006, you will have greatest success if you approach every experience as a student. Your ability to experience happiness will expand if you re-ignite your love of learning and become perpetually ablaze with curiosity. You know that old expression, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"? I suggest you make yourself ready, because a crucial teacher is or will soon be in your vicinity. Here's another key piece of advice, courtesy of J. Bronowski: "It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it."
Here's a glowing Scanner review:
"A Scanner Darkly delivers. At least, it delivered up to my expectations. They may be very high expectations, though, I realize. It is a dense movie, that is not going to be easy to understand in one viewing. Even I'm not 100% sure about what happened."
