  1. I haven’t seen the film but reading your post I thought what a cool person to go to the movies with, you must be. I love how you want to chat in depth about it afterwards. That is one of my favourite things to do. I think it honours the screenwriter and all the people who make films, when viewers GET the unconscious layers that they obviously strive so hard to weave into the big picture.

  2. I’ve seen it. I really liked it. There’s a great book that goes with it that she wrote while she was procrastinating writing THE FUTURE. The old guy was someone she met on her not-writing-the-move-procrastinating-instead project, and he was dying of cancer during the filming, and died shortly afterwards. Yes, the cat voice was irritating, there were some off moments in it, but in general I think Miranda July is pretty amazing and it’s great that she takes risks and is so singular in her approach. Both the book and the movie were so much about the creative process, and how hard it is to make stuff in this internet age where we’re so easily distracted, and confronted by other people doing things seemingly so much cooler than the stuff we do. But now I’m going to have to see it again because it’s become a little hazy… have you seen Looper BTW?

    1. No I haven’t – is it good? I do like time-travel stuff!

      re: The Future – it was also about the end of the world, don’t you think? I thought it had a similar tone to ‘Melancholia’.
