Film Lover Challenge a.k.a. Couch Potato Challenge

For quotidifornian, while I am lazing around on Friday night and thinking seriously about definitely writing at some point in the very near future:

1. Stalker

Andrei Tarkovsky’s eerie post apocalyptic masterpiece makes movement out of stillness and I haven’t the slightest idea how.  

2. Old Joy 

Kelly Reichardt is the business. I adore her work.  Wendy and Lucy broke my heart in the most careful way, with a tiny diamond sledgehammer of real human and animal concerns, and Old Joy is such a great meditation on friendship and aging.

3. Captain Blood

…which here will stand in for anything in which Errol Flynn solves political problems with swords.

4. Chronos

Because Guillermo del Toro is the king of monster films and Chronos is a truly excellent one about an ordinary Mexican abuelo (vampire).

5. 2001: Space Odyssey

Thank you Stevie.

6. Blues Brothers

I love Chicago.  I love Aretha Franklin.    Pretty ok with Belushi and Aykroyd.

7. Koyaanisquatsi

Pictures, though the implicit moralizing is not a narrative I love.  Yes, we are indeed far from Eden.  But look at all the terrible things and lovely shapes.

8. Tampopo

NOODLE WESTERN.

9. Paris is Burning

God it is such a good documentary.

10. Wit

Jenn, you want to talk about Emma Thompson crying? How about Emma Thompson, one woman play about a John Donne powerscholar dying of cancer and coming to terms with her life’s work and the words she’s studied for years in wrenching new ways?  How about that?  

11. On Deadly Ground

A Steven Segal film by Steven Segal. He cleans up a drilling operation by exploding everything, it’s incredible.

12. Spirited Away

My fave Ghibli.  I think I love the inexplicable train the most.

13. Hanna

You know what was a great movie about a child unleashed on the world? Hanna.

14. An American Werewolf in London

An American unleashed on the world? Just a really good horror film.

15. Death Takes a Holiday

It’s just such a good sweet old macabre thing.

tnelms?  I hear you also enjoy the post apocalypse…

"He called and said that he was going to commit suicide if I left him. But he’d already blackmailed me so many times before, and I was so tired of it, that I told him I didn’t care and hung up. When I called back three hours later, a cop answered the phone."

That’s a person in my city!  Seriously thoughtful things in HONY recently.

Meet Kelly, The First Recipient of a Nerdfighter Indie Creator Grant

http://www.kellykend.com

So Vlogbrothers started running pre-rolls more than a month ago, so we’ve had the first lump of money come in. The biggest chunk of the first payment (and probably a fairly large chunk of the second one) will be going to Kelly Kend to help her work on her documentary “Yeah, Maybe No” which is about consent and sexual abuse.

Just by chance, I was at the same conference as Kelly last weekend so we got to hang out (and I can confirm that she is very smart, very nice, and very well informed on this topic.) 

She’s a survivor herself, and just an all around awesome person, and Nerdfighteria is responsible for the money she now has to finish her documentary.

Hey! That’s me! 

Hey!
