Saw this one at the Harvard Exit for SIFF last night. Yeah. Lame Thelma and Louise rip-off set in Italy except the protagonists' sexual tension is thrown right in your face instead of all subtle-like as in Thelma and Louise. On top of that, Thelma and Louise grew up and became better people. All the more tragic. The characters in this movie stay stupid and vacuous. The bad guys were annoying, but I still wanted them to beat the holy living crap out of the lesbians. Cause the lesbians evoked no sympathy. I can't even call them by their character names, they pushed the lesbian angle on the viewer so much their names are meaningless.

As I wrote in a comment, I used to think lesbian sex could make any movie decent. I was wrong.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
