Blanchett is fine, but I think I have enjoyed the movies of Collette & Binoche (e.g) more over the last decade.

Too much hair, too red. Dylan may have been a little androgynous, but I don't remember him ever being languid, and I just saw the Pennebaker again recently. Coiled snake he was, rattling striking often; not like Warhol.

Please tell me you people are joking and I do not have to explain the physics of passively introducing liquid into a bodily orifice to you all.

Passive introductions are the worst. Really awkward. I hate it when I'm at a party with a bodily orifice of mine and the host just sort of walks over with some liquid and seems to expect that he can introduce the liquid to the orifice just by, you know, standing there looking expectantly from one to the other.

PK knows what a tampon is, and god willing he'll never encounter a fucking douche kit, but he did come out the other day waving my vibrator after I'd complained that my back hurt. When he was littler, his interest in my vibrator was cute. Now he's old enough that I was somewhat horrified.

I enjoyed the "nonsensical movie descriptions" thread more than the "parsing of the word 'douchebag'" thread.

Dammit, now I have the image of a ten-year-old holding a douche, standing proudly over a chocolate cake with "Clean as a whistle!" written on it.

I blame, um, B. Because who else?

Don't be horrified just because PK has been using your vibrator to relieve his back pain! That gives you plausible deniability as to its true purpose!

125: did it help, though?

Not "to," Ben dear. "Into." Try again.

When he was little we told him it was a tickle machine. How he made the connection to, uh, relief of tension I have no idea. And for fuck's sake, no, it did not help; I took it from him and put it away.

I don't begin to know what to say.

Better warn him about unexplained calf pain.

I always wondered who that warning was for. Now we know.

The name in 119 should be redacted to be "ben w-lfs-n". Otherwise, the world will no longer make sense.

Pretending like the intervening 40 comments didn't happen: it's inevitable that in the scenario in 92, Clive Owen will be upstaged by Philip Seymour Hoffman in a chilling cameo as the Fifth Horseman, Severe Discomfort, who appears at a crossroads and gets mistaken for the Devil. Movie trivia buffs will note that in the background of the same scene, Steve Buscemi can be seen just up the road in the part of Ed Wood filming the never-released documentary "Douche: It's Not Just for Ladies Anymore."

The trailer is here and a leaked clip is here. Without the glasses, she doesn't look a lot like him. The jury's out for me on how much she acts like him.

That looks almost like David Cross playing Ginsberg in that clip. Pretty convincing.

Don't think I'll be able to buy her as Dylan, even a little bit; the physical Cate-ness is just too present.

Oh, except from the trailer, it would seem her not looking like him is part of the point. So that's different.

Dylan! The greatest everything of our time! HE IS EVERYONE HE IS NO ONE. Shut up, Todd Haynes.
