Rachel Getting Married=Vomit

A few weeks ago I took my mother to see Rachel Getting Married. The performances were good, although a bit over-the-top, but ultimately it was pretty boring. At one point, everyone sits in the kitchen watching a dishwasher-loading contest. I turned to my mother and said, "Is this interesting cinema? I can load my own dishwasher at home."

But the biggest problem in the movie is the way indie film makers want to capture a film with all its "real world" jiggling a la "Blair Witch." The purpose, I suppose, is to make things appear more like documentary off-the-cuff film making. However, the real effect is my poor mother leaving the theater and saying:

"I feel like THROWING UP!"
