I read the book on which this movie is based. It's a true crime novel. When I rented the DVD though, I didn't realize it was Larry Clark who directed. Larry Clark who directed Kids. The man likes to show kids at their most depraved. His movies are Lords of the Flies on screen. It's an excellent movie, but not a pleasant movie. Oh, the plot: Lisa plots to kill her boyfriend Marty's best friend Bobby because he's a bully. The worst kind. She enlists the help of a bunch of 17 to 20 something ne'er-do-wells. Clark makes Bobby pretty unappetizing, but having read the book I think he's sitll a lot prettier than he was in real life. I mean in terms of personality.

    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.
