Beautiful future partenaire




I hope that Jake and Reese connect their chemistry plugs as much as Reese made it with Joaquin Phoenix, or how Jake with Jen Aniston.






These four scenes above belong to the dotty film "S.F.W." (So Fucking What?), one of my most guilty pleasures of cinema, by Jefery Levy (1994), it's difficult to make its synopsis coherent, as an anonymous viewer in a review for Amazon submitted:

"A FILM WAY AHEAD OF IT'S TIME. July 25, 1999
Take a look at this film and you will be amazed at how it predicted the future -- from OJ to JFK jr. Also, how many films have there been since SFW that have dealt with the same themes, but not nearly as well? NBK; Mad City; Truman Show; Ed TV -- SFW is, quite simply, a work of genius -- even more amazing: the book was written by a 17 year old college kid in 1987! The film, while it parodies teen romance films, also deals with the way popular culture (not just the media) takes a person or event, uses it to sell, sell, sell, then discards it, usually destroying it/him. The big cycle of pop culture. Check it out for yourself." -A viewer.


The antihero is Cliff Spab (performed by Stephen Dorff) and he is kidnapped by terrorists during 36 days in company of Reese Witherspoon (Wendy Pfister). Despite of a childish script and some camera work wreck, I haven't been able to forget its empty message, so although is despised as a dreadful sub "Natural Born Killers" by cinephiles, so fucking what? Some dialogue of the end by Stephen and Reese in the hospital after having been shot by a repressed teenager.

Cliff Spab: Wendy
Wendy Pfister: Spab
Cliff Spab: Wendy
Wendy Pfister: Spab
Cliff Spab: Wendy
Wendy Pfister: Spab
Cliff Spab: So are we gettin' married or what?
Wendy Pfister: Hey, guy. You fucking know it.

And while Reese was running away as Vanessa Lutz in her car in "Freeway", in a time bucle Jake was riding his bike yesterday 28th September in West Village, N.Y.

Well I hope there's not too much chemistry as I like her hubby Ryan Phillippe.

I'm so shallow.

Kendra said...

Ryan Phillipe was "The Sex" in "Studio 54", that scene of Ryan flirting with Selma Hayek in the kitchen was electryfingly sexy, and in "Cruel intentions", cough, teaching sex techniques to Selma Blair's character, playing sex games with Sarah M. Gellar and then cuddling Reese, unstoppable Ryan! your attraction is rational, Simon.

Thanks Kendra,
As I've been immersed in trying to make sense out of the life of Elvis Presley these last few weeks, SFW seems like imperative viewing or reading.

Kendra said...

"I knew by heart all the dialogue of James Dean's films" -Elvis Presley quote. How not love supreme Elvis, I think I watched a documentary about his disastrous eating habits and one of his cook maids said that he bought her a house, incredible! Yes, Vanzmotorbike, I recommend you fervently watching SFW, it's a sleeper, you will laugh and wrinkle your brows.

ryan phillipe was hot as hell in studio 54..he was the only reason i saw that film :p

Kendra said...

Right, gr77, but in "Crash" his character was a bit dulled and eclipsed by Matt Dillon.
