God and Am terrifies me-gets me to the church on time.
9 March 2007 | by (lic nyc) – See all my reviews

Having seen it only once, and feeling senility approaching on the horizon. i liked this movie very much, it resonates with me, but I had to let it absorb for a bit, it stayed with me for awhile, things percolating. i was at blockbuster a couple of days later, looking for movies, and found myself thinking about Onion Underwater instead. i thought It should be made into a full length movie, that i'd rather see that than anything i was considering at blockbuster (though I picked up scanner darkly, and that was a good choice). i found myself thinking about tara's (eve's?) state of mind before we meet her in the photobooth, why did she choose to take god, what was her relationship like with onion, did oobug give her the god, or did she get it on her own, is oobug just a pusher for the realm of dog-ma (sneaky, intentional?, am and god? yes, you must have..)? i love all the flips and juxtopositions, blue orange, male female, wet dry, day night, inside outside. the beach is always inspiring to me, where water meets land and licks it, it's a very spiritual but still totally grounded place. i grew up on beaches, i would also kill myself at the beach, if i was going to... very funny that she starts off in men's clothes (biologically, all creatures start out female, it's the y chromosome that is the secondary mutation...). who is chord and why does he have that name? there is a great existential question at the heart of this movie, that is why I like it. embrace desire or free yourself from it? the best juxtaposition of all, god tells tara desire is everything. but, like the best tragedy, too late, the price of knowledge was everything, eve apparently fraks it up again. that is ironic isn't it, since Christianity is in the business of suppressing both knowledge and desire? tara/eve was in a lose lose situation in the world of dogma, but in the world of mysticism/gnosticism, it was win win wasn't it?
