i wanna go see “get out” and “i am not your negro” back to back on the same day with a group of black folks again. i went to see em both in 125th like i do with most black films so it feels more at home and more cathartic when you in the audience watching all that and experiencing it all with a spectrum of folks similar to you. it heightens that cathartic feeling i think.
You said the texas chainsaw massacre movie of '74 was the best film ever created. I wanted to know why you thought this
Besides scaring me half to death, as a child. The more times, I watched it. The more I’ve fallen in love, with the film. The music, the set design, the never been topped art design, the acting(which I concede, is varying, but I believe each actor, when it pertains to their character) By the end of the film, I truly believed Marilyn Burns(the lead actress) was losing her sanity and indeed she had broken out of a window in hell, to escape. The Texas heat, also plays an essential part, of the film. You can almost feel the abominable Texas heat. During the infamous dinner scene, you can practically smell the rotting meat, that had been sitting out in 100 degree temperatures, all day. Also, despite the lurid title, the film is very short on gore. Leaving much, to the imagination. As someone who used to travel the back long forgotten country roads of America, and explore abandoned houses, it’s truly frightening to think…………what could have happened, if I stumbled into the wrong house. So for me, it works. It’s funny, horrifying,thought provoking, grotesque and even in some parts, sad. Everything a good movie, should be!
