Film… and stuff

site angel 1

Just a pink ink portrait of a fellow, taken from a film still.  In the shot, the character in question is standing beside Serge Gainsbourg.  The name of the film escapes me.

This is perhaps why I decided to turn the fellow into a film nerd.  He would never have forgotten the name of the film. I imagine he may be like the friend you might already have—the one who embodies all IMDB-knowledge.  When you ask him or her if they liked the movie that you just saw together, they might say “I did and I didn’t.”  They collect Bergman biographies and musty-smelling film theory paperbacks.  You gave him/her something from the Criterion Collection for their birthday.  They endlessly tease you for your squeamish refusal to watch Oldboy, but they know your taste in movies to a T and are ever-ready to interrupt their Netflix queue for you because you haven’t yet seen The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.  Such is the discerning and judicious love of the film nerd friend…

    1. Thanks, Yvonne. Your comment made my day 🙂 We all need nerd friend expertise every now and then. Glad you enjoyed the soft-collar. I completely agree about its art-world uses… I will hopefully never have to need one. 🙂
