The Birdcage[1996]
With Robin Williams in a movie about a functionally dysfunctional gay family who owns a cross-dressing night club, there is bound to be entertainment to be had.  The performances by Nathan Lane and Hank Azaria steal the show however.  Just watching them perform, unbridled and hamming it up, was worth the watch alone.  Ultimately I feel the story was lacking.  They wanted to shove a very unconventional movie into a painfully conventional story arch and unfortunately things just didn't seem to fit.  It could have been a much better film had they explored the real issues of the film without trying to paint over it with standard comedy paint.  And was I the only one not buying Calista Flockhart as a twenty year old college conservative?  She completely blocked comedic rhythm every time she was given screen time.  Despite these pitfalls the performances saved it, and it was still a fun movie.
Rating: 3.5/5

Last Days (2005) ****
http://billsmovieemporium.wordpress.com/2009/11/11/review-last-days-2005/

If you didn't like Paranoid Park or Elephant because "nothing happened" then I'm 100% positive Last Days is not the movie for you. I on the other hand view it as more excellent meditation on the human condition by Gus Van Sant. There isn't much I can say about this movie, it's very much about the experience of watching it and then ruminating over what you have just seen after it's over. Basically, it's more that I love from GVS.

I feel like this is not the first time you reviewed something right after I watched it?

Probably not, I do stalk you, or I should say our beards are magnetically attracted to one another.

This is sort of what I figured. Good to know. Does yours itch today?

It did earlier, around say 6:30, I'm hoping yours did as well, nothing beats synchronized beard scratching.

I remember being half-asleep, so I'm gonna say yes.

Good, we're on the same page, that's always important.
