A Random Image

You know how you run across something twenty years out and you had forgotten just how monumentally rad that it actually is??? ‘Brubaker‘ is one such thing, in celluloid form. I had even forgotten that movie ever damn existed*. I caught it today and geeholyhell it knocked my socks off….one of those timeless movies that really transcends itself.

Or perhaps I just really groove on prison movies. I dunno, but I really doubt it.

*See, when I was younger (like 5,6,7,8,9-13) my dad looked an INSANE amount like Robert Redford. He had that great head of perfect reddy-brownlike hair (thick as a mutha, and natural waves that women pay scads of moolah for) and looked fantabulous in jeans and rolled up sleeves. He had an easy, boylike smile, a voice as rich as chocolate and a rare masculine grace. My dad seemed to be the total package; he looked good enough to eat and I heard it constantly from friends, neighbors and countrymen. He also got the Redford comparison LOTS, so I seem now to draw a blank on any and all movies by Mr. Redford pre-Horse Whisperer. This isn’t a conscious, on-purpose sort of deal, so don’t ask ME; the mind is a complex thing and works in different ways….mine appears to usually be in sliding-scale mode….

Don´t be shy. Lay it on me.
