Last night I was forced to endure the movie Closer by my girlfriend, who was told that it was outstanding. I personally found it to be repugnant on many levels, and found myself disgusted and incensed by virtually everything found therein. The movie's premise centers on the disloyalty and infidelity by all parties in a foursome with one another. One couple is married, but cheat with members of the opposite sex from the same couple. As this occurs, the protagonists excuse their behavior because they claim that love drove them to do these thing, which I think is utter rubbish. Everyone involved in such a sordid scheme in real life should be shot, in my humble opinion. I realize that humans have been unfaithful since the dawn of time, but I feel we should hold ourselves to a higher standard and strive for perfection- this movie portrayed man as weak, ignoble, unfaithful, disloyal, dishonest, and generally unscrupulous. This is disgraceful. Unless the movie was shot for the express purpose of showing how not to conduct your life, I feel that the aims of the movie were pathetic, as it validates man's baser instincts. Am I alone in my thinking here? Should people just do whatever they want, or should men act like men and strive for nobilty and just action?
what the fuck are you pussies watching 'closer' for anyway? has anyone seen zatoichi; the blind master' yet? awesome flick. that's how i want to go out; blind, gambling, and killing all the scum 5 at a time around me with a samuri sword.
sex doesn't matter. everyone should be sterilized anyway. more than enough orphans for her "hobby." personal betrayal has nothing to do with sex. someone can fuck everyone in the building and not give you over to the cops or make fun of you when it's all falling apart, and another person can be all holy and faithful but the first to sell you down the river to your next door neighbor, or the first person with a beter gig.
i guess it's what version of 'house' you're playing with them at the time. 'learn to be alone and you will find strength.' that's a quote from 'zatoichi; the blind master'.
