A vigorous bit of analingus, to be sure.

Filmenthusiast2000 continues to crash the party...listen, whoever you are, perhaps you should just keep on renting and re-renting Jean Claude Brisseau movies, tell yourself that they're "art" (no really, they are) whilst you slowly jerk yourself off for two hours, repeating the words "DePalma" and "trash aesthetic" over and over again until you spooge a nice healthy helping of self-justified porn-tasm all over the mattress.

"No, you see how they keep tripping up when they're talking and saying kind of boring shit? Yeah, I do that too sometimes! It's, like, real!"
I'll meet you in the sober light of six months from now, Robbie, when you and a pack of quick-on-the-trigger critics realize that you--out of sheer boredom--drooled all over a B- Senior film.
Brisseau and DePalma have the same "trash aesthetic" as fucking Michelangelo. Shaky camera and fumbly improv= honesty? I don't fucking think so.

Well, some of us perhaps see ourselves a bit TOO much in these little skidmarked-underwear gems, methinks. It's tough to have to face yourself...one tries to avoid the mirror all day long and them wham-bang, when you least expect it, your reflection peers back at you from behind layers of 16mm grime. It's hard to make it out, but it's there. And like the oracle in The Neverending Story, it fucking HURTS, filmenthusiast2000, it hurts. Narcissism so often becomes self-denial.

Do I think I'll be saying the same thing in five years? Three years? Who the fuck knows. Did I feel something when I rewatched it last week. Yes, I did. Can't speak for its timelessness just yet.

'Funny Ha Ha' doesn't resemble my life at all because a) I drink a lot more than any of these pussies and b) rather than engage in "tentative, halting, jazzy circumlocution jams," I talk about sex like a 7th grader and hilariously make fun of shitty movies like 'Funny Ha Ha.'

i can't argue with any of those comments. Just replace "shitty" with "charming" or "humble" and you're 100 percent on the money.
