well luckily it's the time of the year when all the Oscar nominees start showing in shitty little towns like Athens, Georgia (which despite being the only liberal stronghold in the Peach State...still doesn't get quality indie films with any regularity). saw Slumdog Millionaire last weekend, going to see The Wrestler this weekend, and also looking forward to The Reader as well (who doesn't love Kate Winslet's boobs?). i've also been going crazy with my Netlfix as well. last night i watched an awesome fucking documentary about the kidnapping epidemic and political corruption in Brazil called Manda Bala (Send A Bullet). if you liked the doc Cocaine Cowboys or were really into the movie City Of God then this is right up your alley. a word of advice, do not go to Sao Paolo, Brazil...you will be kidnapped, you will get your ear chopped off, this is how life goes.
here's the trailer.
full of black humor, great interviews, and a killer soundtrack of Brazilian folk, funk, & psych-rock. check it out.
other than that i'm playing way too much NCAA 09...football withdrawl is a bitch, son.
