What a funny movie. I need to rent more documentaries like this. ” Drop Dead Gorgeous” was great too, though it wasn’t a real documentary. I saw “Welcome to Hollywood,” but it wasn’t all that funny. I just ended up feeling very sorry for Nick Decker. I think a lot of it was set up too, with David Lake showing up all the time. Looking it up on IMDb shows that it probably was fake, since the guy who was Nick Decker gets writing and directing credits, and the guy who was David Lake was credited as David Andriole. The guy who was Nick Decker, the brand new actor, has been in stuff since 1983. Though he hasn’t been credited for anything since…

While I’m on movies, I might as well say that I didn’t think that Gladiator should have won the Oscar. I thought both Traffic and Crouching Tiger were much better. I loved Crouching Tiger so much. I think a lot of people really didn’t get it because it was subtitled. That was an interesting choice, but I think it was the right one. Excellent performances all around, great effects, beautiful scenes and music, just a great movie. And the story! What a touching story of unrequited love. Not really any surprises, but I’ve determined that surprises are not fundamental to a good story. Check Romeo & Juliet, he tells you the plot at the beginning. I think surprise is often so forced and unsuccessful that it takes me out of the story. Anyway, Crouching Tiger is definitely a DVD I’m going to buy.
