Cinemarch Madness: Watson Division Semifinal
Oh, dear God. What can I even eliminate here? Well, Seven (still think of it as an action movie, head-in-box be damned) and Eternal Sunshine (fundamentally sweet, hopeful about love). I'll also chuck out Breaking the Waves, because I admired it but wasn't gutted. House of Sand and Fog I only watched because Ron Eldard was in it it's really wrong I know don't email me. Blue Valentine had a few too many on-the-nose moments happening.
Deliverance has to go too, I guess. It's just a liiiiiittle more creepy than it is depressing, and while Laramie made me very very angry, it wasn't quite as profoundly dire as The Cove (dolphins screaming, I can't even) and Deer Hunter (Walken mostly not screaming, I can't even).
But I think this is Breaking the Waves's to lose, with Deer Hunter coming in next.
Tomorrow: More tears, plus special guest ferretrick assumes the write-up helm.
