My Life with Morrissey (2003)
What indie films are made of...
This movie isn't really about Morrissey at all. It doesn't have any of his songs, he doesn't appear in the film and it doesn't focus on Morrissey as a personality. It is about one girl, Jackie, who is completely off her rocker. Her unhealthy obsession with the Brit star leads her to madness when she meets him one night.
We are first introduced to Jackie getting ready for work and kissing her Moz posters goodbye. Then we meet her coworkers, who are all a little "off" in their own right. Ed, a disturbed, cart-pushing coworker who has a crush on Jackie, is especially funny. The story picks up when Jackie finds Morrissey and gets a ride home from him. Nothing else happens with Morrissey but Jackie convinces herself that she is going to marry him anyway.
The humor is wacky and fun. I was laughing out loud all the way through. You won't believe some of the things that Jackie does and the situations she gets herself into. She has an interesting relationship with her vibrator, there is a great lesbian schoolgirl scene where Jackie gets attacked, and a freaky scene where she has Morrissey's face taped to a blow-up doll. Also, watch for the actor that does the voice of `Spongebob Squarepants' -- he's the record store clerk.
It's a low budget indie film, but the charm and personality far exceeds a lot of bigger budget flicks. A must see for people that enjoy good storytelling and outrageous scenes, and for people with a sense of humor.
