Thumbs down. Skippable movie but it does show an interesting story about three guys who are sent to guantanamo prison for no reason. Most of the time I didn’t fully understand what was happening and the acting was really bad by the American soldiers in the reenactments.
I had a dream that me and two other people (i don’t remember who) were wading through some kind of swamp on a surfboard or something. After spotting an alligator floating towards us on the surface of the murky water, we jumped off the surfboard into waist-deep mud. As the alligator was about to attack one of my friends I threw the surfboard into it’s mouth vertically. The surfboard was crushed by the massive jaws but I took the opportunity to use my hands to clamp the alligators mouth shut (yes, I was that strong in my dream).
Somehow I end up dragging the alligator onto dry land and laying it on it’s back which revealed that it’s completely hollow. It’s a robot alligator. So I stuff leaves and branches into the bottom of the alligator’s body, which somehow causes it to die.
How do we know if we are not insane? What can really insanity be defined as. How do you know for sure that your mind doesn’t play tricks on you? How do you know for sure that everyone you know is real? What were you doing last year on this date? What did you eat for dinner two weeks ago on Tuesday? The mind leaves out some details. Why? Why am I writing this blog entry? Am I insane?
I’m excited about the new opportunities that are opening up for me. Sending out resumes and networking is something I have been doing for a long time but now I feel as if this is the time when it actually matters. I’ve graduated with a BA from college and I’m ready for the world. Who knows if the world is ready for me?
Trying to formulate some ideas to put together a completed script so I can shoot another short this summer. It’s so hard to put something together with a zero budget. In this business though, there’s always people willing to work for free because there’s a slim chance it will make them money elsewhere. It’s always worth a shot. I have some good ideas (I think), so ask me about them and tell me what you really think. I’m tired of hearing “that sounds cool” or “that sounds good” about everything. (BTW if you guys haven’t checked out my short “My Name is Johnny”, you should check that out.)
Unfortunately, I am still in pain from the whiplash injuries in a car accident back in March. Two days a week I’m at physical therapy trying to get better. The medication I take makes me feel sleepy and dizzy. Getting hit while sitting in my car at a red light has really put a painful reminder of my mortality in my everyday routine. An ache here, a jolt of pain there. It doesn’t seem to want to end anytime soon.
In some ways I am still not out of college mode. This will change over time.
I don’t know why I decided at 4 AM to write a tumblr entry, but I did. So there you go. Back to finishing watching Sin Nombre.
