name THAT stone!



i finally made time to see the town. even though i'll buy it, who has the patience?
it was everything i could have asked for. a terrific movie and set entirely in the area i spent six straight weeks, with plenty of aerial shots of my hotel, that lovely monument i scaled, and pictures similar, but far superior, to those i took with my crappy cell phone camera from inside the monument's apex.


if you've seen the movie already (major spoilage), a poll:


okay, so it ended well in fairytale movieland. but. setting aside the entirely relevant consequences of putting claire in harm's way from his crew and the boss especially, and putting claire in jeopardy with smokey and hammbone; that is, from purely an emotional standpoint, doug's decision to pursue a relationship with claire after his initial investigative sally was:

Poll #1628668 sunny daze

1) I would like to complain about this poll: you should have included an ALL OF THE ABOVE option, just so we could click OTHER and complain about the poll some more.
2) Felt true, and I had no opinion about it.

a) i would like to complain about your response: as clever and amusing (although i'm only haphazardly familiar with the referent(s) and its(their) ensuing development) as it is, i'm chagrined at the absence of evaluation of dougie's choice.

2) hmmm.

⠁) The movie wanted a both/and solution: reprehensible, selfish, his only love-lorn option, romantical, blah blah blah. The movie wanted you to feel good about all of it being the case, and god even though i remember enjoying the film I must have been so bored since the only thing I could remember about it when your post went up was that it was a DON DRAPER EXPRESSION delivery device (and I liked it for that). I spent a good ten minutes googling the plot points (though this may be a result of my hole-y brain). Anyway. If it were me, with the Dougie's Choice, of course I would have avoided her as much as possible.

⠂) It's a LAW AND ORDER: DEVASTATED MIDDLE AMERICAN CITY episode, and I wish there were more episodes, cos it goes down nicely.
