I thought of another one.
Another movie where the 'under movie' is more riveting to me than the original story the writer/director is trying to tell.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
I can't STAND this movie.
Ferris has a best friend, named Cameron. And Cameron's father is a beast. He's a seriously horrible narcissistic abusive beast. Cameron is deathly afraid of his Father and wants so badly to get the courage up to tell him to fuck off, Cameron wants to FLY.
I identified with this character so strongly, in fact, that I haven't watched the entire movie EVER. I cannot sit through it. I've seen it in bits and pieces when they are shown on tv. I even looked on Youtube for the purposes of posting a link to Cameron's fear in this blog and my stomach went all clenchy and bathroom-y and I had to just stop looking.
I HATE THIS MOVIE. And it's because of a secondary plot that most people laughed at. The quirky odd Cameron. Being that scared of a parent? HA HA HA! Who DOES that? yeah, well, ME. Being scared TO DEATH <--think about what that means. I would rather have died than have my dad that mad at me THAT IS A SICK WAY TO GROW UP.
Danke Schoen my ASS. I hope Cameron's father died a very painful death. Seriously. DEAD.
