A question: is anyone else sick of well-acted independent movies about people who fall into addiction and ruin their lives? I'm getting seriously bored of them, because all they offer is attractive people becoming really unattractive. Plus, the ending's either fake or depressing.
Used to think I could be entertained by anything. But it turns out I was wrong. Sure, a movie can be slow-paced and well-acted and Serious. But could it at least take place during the Civil War? Or involve aliens? Or something?
Summer is rotting my brain. I'm reading The Bell Jar and I've just gotten to the part where Esther's flailing about, trying to figure out what to do with her summer even as she descends mentally, rejecting all ideas and feeling lost.
You know, people keep saying that it's a very funny book. Maybe that's just in comparison to Plath's life.
