Idk, he is for sure walking on a thin line here... hopefully he'll manage to pull it off somehow.

No fucking way will that happen. That's ridiculous, right?

The holocaust was a mass tragedy. If you turn that into a revenge story, then fine. Everyone will think it's a blast. But this is like an intimate murder... how could you watch these pictures of Sharon Tate and be like "oh, I'm gonna turn this into some fucking revenge fantasy"? I mean, maybe he will do that,  but then he have to be tasteful about it. And i'm not sure how that is possible.

Maybe Bruce Lee saves Sharon Tate...? A dopey projection that seems to be going around Twitter. Mostly at a jest, but still :doh:

I canít imagine a scenario re: OUATIH in which fucking around with the established facts of this particular case could ever be pulled off successfully. With Hitler itís one thing, blow him to bits yay!!!! but these were innocent people - she was 8 months pregnant for fucksake - how could it come off as anything but in poor taste? I donít see it working. I certainly donít believe Sharonís sister would have approved the script if that were the case. And furthermore if the murders were ultimately prevented, the Family would have no historical/dramatic value or relevance.

I donít buy it!

I wonder how many people thought about this movie after Uma's crash video leaked.
The script is so good --

Quote
As a new 45 falls on the vintage turntable...and the needle lowers...

We go behind a Customer sitting at the bar. Using both hands, heís eating the Huckís Huckiní Nacho Grande Platter. Which comes with double everything: sour cream, melted cheese, queso sauce, enchilada sauce, and chili sauce.

The Customer is not wolfishly devouring it, yet, using both of his bare hands, heís eating it in a way that expresses his hearty appetite. And apparently these nachos are finger-licking good.

Due to the silver satin ďIcy HotĒ jacket, we can tell that the Customer and the Driver are the same. But we can tell more now about him. He appears middle fifties, but actually might be older. His body is in good, if well-worn, shape.

In place of a beat-up cowboy hat, he wears a beat-up pompadour that he keeps afloat with a healthy mixture of Aqua Net and Tres Flores pomade.

His body language carries that certain breed of redneck elegance that only rodeo riders and professional stuntmen have. He listens to music on the jukebox as he eats his nachos, and drinks his glass of clear liquid.

We have yet to see him full on, but one more thing we can tell...

... he has a big scar running down his face.

Have loved music videoz all my life and I finally got to create an "official" one <3
Very grateful to get to play within the genrez that inspire me and to contribute to SB'z cyber-queerpunk worldbuilding ~ ~

The premiere write-up compares our visuals to the 80z ... and well, although I was thinking more of Deep Red and Serial Experiments Lain, the night we wrapped third shoot day, we went with SB to Cinematic Void'z screening of BLOW OUT vs INFERNO at the Egyptian. Maybe they're not too off-base... I think it's the colors??
Now StrandedWriter iz part of Xixax too, and for real y'all, I just wanna give my friend propz... his lighting and composition is  :notworthy: imo.
