An instinctive move would be to name it after a certain shade of red. (It's supposed to look like this, or something.) But I'm thinking I should name it Ashura, after Zelman Clock of the Ashura clan in Black Blood Brothers. Besides, it's a fitting name for a gaming laptop. :) MY ENEMIES SHALL BURN!
Anyway. Uh yeah, I went to see Shame at the New York Film Festival with dissociate on Sunday. Not sure how exactly to describe this thoroughly depressing movie. All that emptiness and inability to connect with people (not just the protagonist but pretty much all major characters), very sad. Yes there is a TON of nudity (and Michael Fassbender is hung like an elephant, pardon my lack of subtlety), but there is really very little feeling, let alone joy, in it at all. There is only indiscriminate need, and one has to question if sex can be all that great when it becomes demanding like a job.
Speaking of fucked-up love life movies, I came across Love Me If You Dare (or in original French: Jeux d'enfants) today and all I could think of was: Man, why does Marion Cotillard keep popping up as the crazy woman?
