Last Friday I had ankle and foot surgery. Consequently, I cannot put weight on my foot for the next seven weeks, which means using a walker like the old lady that I am at heart. I haven't been anywhere but my bed and the bathroom for the past week. Before my surgery, I envisioned that this would mean a lot of movie watching and blogging. However, it has mostly been me trying to read but falling asleep and my caretakers yelling at me to drink more water. Today I feel fresh ( I slept until 12:15 which really cut out the middle man since I take a morning nap anyway) and ready to at least get something done. I put on Wavelength and watched it with my sister. Dear lord, haven't I suffered enough?
The only thing that stopped me from turning this movie off was the fact that it was only forty five minutes. Between the high pitched noises and the flashing colors, I had a slight headache at the end of it. I have enough problems with nausea due to pain medications that I am now on. Do we really have to throw this in the mix?
See those pictures on the wall in the above screenshot? The whole film is a tracking shot that gets us closer and closer to the wall. During the excruciatingly long wait (honestly, I move faster with my walker) a man falls down in a very theatrical way. Evidently he died from old age waiting for the film to end. I feel you man, I feel you.
Just plain awful.
Nothing interesting about this film. It is available on YouTube if you need to check it off The List.
