Just saw it with Owen (yay Owen!) at the Normal Theater (yay Normal Theater!).

Woah. It was gritt-tay and sublime. I love it when movies have quick, satisfying scenes like that. If you can create a satisfying story with intellectual and emotional heft AND not draaaaaaaaaag us through long, introspective pauses...then kudos, my friend. Kudos of the highest caliber. The older I get, the more ADD I acquire. I've always loved short stories and short films, but now I realize that I love short SCENES as well. Of course there are many, many fantastic, lengthy scenes in films, but I think it's even harder to create such affecting fare in a shorter amount of time (the total run-time was 88 minutes). And Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates had a kid and it turned into a cute kid and he's in that movie, and he does something that I thought I would only see in a Todd Solondz film. Fecked up.

But damn...do I ever love movies.

And this makes sense.

After you die...
Guardian Angel

After death, you will exist as a guardian angel in order to protect your still-living loved ones. You might even inspire a classic Christmas movie.

Although first I would like to visit the Beetlejuice waiting room just to see what's up.
