Crop And Save
Depp and especially Del Toro are Brilliant.
By far Benicio Del Toro's best work.
You will watch this movie for the first time and be kinda lost. But the next 100 times you watch it, you'll keep loving it more and more.
Depp is great as Hunter S. (Raoul Duke), but it's Del Toro's antics as Dr. Gonzo that are unbelievable. His acting range is uncanny.
It is basically a play by play of the book, which itself is a must read. Some people say the movie is un-watchable because of the psychedelic content and drug use. I actually felt this way the first time I saw the film. Then I gave it a second chance.
This movie is in my top 10 all-time.
To really appreciate this movie, watch it with subtitles to catch ALL of the inaudible dialog. Trust me. This movie has SO many memorable quotes it's ridiculous.
I love it. I don't know about you. Watch and enjoy the lunacy.
Rest Area (2004)
2004 Tribeca film festival brilliance.
I saw this short film at the Tribeca film festival this past week. As simple as it is, that's how completely unique and excellent it is. Sean (Blaine Pate), is driving to a business appointment late at night when he gets really tired and decides to stop at a rest area to catch some sleep. That's where he meets Amy (Marcelina Willis), a lonely traveller, who asks if she can join him in his car. The rest is brilliance. With the suspense of Hitchcock and the comedic timing of Mel Brooks, this was clearly my vote for best short. I loved it.
