I am so ridiculously excited. I did a double-take when I saw the poster for this up on a telephone pole near my house.
Zidane's straight GANGSTA!
Nice summary of a hard-to-describe film. I found the Mogwai score really relaxing.
Holy fucking shit -- "disappeared into alcoholic obscurity?" Are you kidding me?!?!?
George Best never disappeared into obscurity. His talents waned, but he continued to be a highly visible and beloved fixture in football and pop culture and, when he died, was sent off to football heaven with a state funeral at Stormont (look it up) and hundreds of thousands of mourners lining the route.
God bless Bestie, and he will NEVER be obscure, Jen.
Jubilation, chill. Best stopped playing when he was 27. He was celebrate at his death for the talents he'd displayed in decades long-gone. You're a good fan, though.
Jen, I am chill -- forgot to put my heater on last night. And yes, I need to be nicer to my favorite art maven.
But still, as a journalist of all things, you should know that George was never obscure. He was always in the press -- for better or worse.
I do not argue he was self-destructive and his talents ended in a bottle of plonk, but "obscure?" Never.
Good day to you, madame.
"In retrospect, “Zidane” becomes unintentionally loaded, like the mundane details of a school shooter’s life."
This is also BS. Zidane is far more noteworthy for being ONE OF THE GREATEST FOOTBALLEURS OF ALL TIME then he is head butting Materazzi. Except of course, to you.
