30 Day Film Challenge is a challenge that lasts thirty days. It gives me a chance to wax poetic about my favorite medium, and put up silly pictures/videos.
Day 20 – Your Favorite Romantic Film
Punch Drunk Love
I still remember vividly how seeing this movie in the theater blew me away. I went with a couple friends and after I had to just sit there for a minute and figure out how to breathe again. It made me so emotional it broke my heart. I think my favorite parts were:
1) the Jon Brion musical interludes with the colors and
2) When Barry and Lena trade passionate pillow talk that I could completely relate to:
Barry: I’m lookin’ at your face and I just wanna smash it. I just wanna fuckin’ smash it with a sledgehammer and squeeze it. You’re so pretty.
Lena: I want to chew your face, and I want to scoop out your eyes and I want to eat them and chew them and suck on them.
Barry: OK. This is funny. This is nice.
