More Oscar coverage this afternoon with a Lifting Fog review of Rachel Getting Married (“it came out four months ago” is the new “just released,” I’m telling you), but a palate cleanser is definitely in order before diving into a world of addiction and crippling childhood trauma. Like The Wrestler, Rachel isn’t exactly “whimsical.”
Of course, neither was Raging Bull, that classic Martin Scorsese film (and 1980 Best Picture LOSER) about issues-laden boxer Jake La Motta… until someone decided to remix it with The Flintstones. NSFW, cubicle dwellers!
Perfect. YouTube is f*ckin’ great.
