Crazy Eyes (2012)
all lit up
It's a drinking movie where the photography matches the mood, it's litup, darkly. So going into the theatre you are really headed into a good and dark bar. The story is set during the holidays, so it would be a good view then. The opening may set the tone as well as Bob in the ambulance and Abbey Lincoln on the score in Drugstore Cowboy. That's high praise.
It's a drinking movie with some good lines, too, from barkeep Busey; unlike the drink, the actress Zima is a convincing hookup and cheapie, gives good slur; Haas has a convincing Angelenoaire to his character.
And because it's a drinking movie, I'm still not sure if crazy eyes even exists, guess it takes some to see that one.
Stranger Than Paradise (1984)
For those in perfect isolation, the opening shot alone (silently foretelling the twist) separates this story from forgettable fare, but that's your problem. U.S. Out of Everywhere, that's still ours.
The camera and cast captures what's stranger than paradise, leaving it or being stuck in it?
Do you really know a place or a person until you've left it?
You could stuff these phrases into a TiVo for further feeding...Spell-casting. Dumb Luck. Grift. Gamble. Factory Worker. Swanson's. John Madden. D-E-V-O. Dog Track. Gift Shop. Lightweight. Sniff.
