i really want to see this movie again. it came out in 1997, officially, but i very clearly remember going to see it in its cinema release with mina, jake, lynne and david. jake and david didn’t move to new orleans until 1998. so who really knows what that’s about.
i don’t remember whether i liked it all that much, but i remember three specific things:
1. the soundtrack is shudder to think – whom i love love love, and jeff buckley’s last finished recording (“i want someone badly”) is on this soundtrack. it also has a great version of “day ditty” by angela mccluskey. (“i finally say, oh sweet darling with you makes me feel all right. but now, i’m so tired…”)
2. she boils their records.
3. one of my “favorite movie quotes that no one ever knows is a movie quote” quotes is from this movie: “you’re so f**king loopy sometimes.”
i think it did poorly in the indie circles and reviews. but it has a happy place in my heart. and the imdb summary is really funny:
Joey and Sissel are two misfits spending most of their time together talking or having sex. Gradually and slowly their relationships are becoming boring for them.
