God Bless, Bitches…


I’ve been relishing over the trailer for ‘Melancholia’ for the past few days, completely obsessed with every frame of it.  The more I think about it the more my hopes and dreams start to overtake me.  I’m becoming obsessed, and not the kind of obsessed that ‘makes sense’ in my cinematic loving brain.  I’m starting to remind myself of those freaks I made fun of last year for slitting their wrists over Natalie Portman’s demon ballerina.  Seriously, I need help; and yet, I don’t want it.  The idea of Kirsten Dunst getting an Oscar nomination makes me want to scream at the top of my lungs “Hallelujah” and I mean that!  It’s about freaking time.  Forget Natalie Portman, who’s deserved an Oscar like NEVER…Kirsten Dunst is a superlative actress who delivers film after film and yet is so disgustingly underappreciated in this industry.  Why hasn’t she been handed an Oscar nomination yet?  No offense to Miss Portman, who can be very good at what she does, but you can color me bitter.  But then, I think to myself, maybe ‘Melancholia’ will be for Von Trier what ‘Black Swan’ was for Aronofsky.  I mean, this is said to be Von Trier’s most accessible film, and he is a respected GENIUS auteur who is bound for Oscar attention someday, or is he?  His films are so abrasive and so controversial, and he obviously could care less about the Oscars (he doesn’t even try, which is what I love so much about him) and yet, can anyone really say that Darren Aronofsky tried?  I mean, it’s not like a film about a psychotic lesbian ballerina screams Oscar and yet, it racked up those nominations and won a top prize for its lead star.  From the look of the trailer, it is heavy in the Von Trier signature styling and yet it seems very polished and glossy, almost too pretty for a Von Trier vehicle; which gives me an ounce of false hope.  I really want nothing more than for this film to be epic, considering the fact that ‘Antichrist’ was not, but I’d also love to see Dunst and Von Trier in the Oscar race.  Being realistic, I should keep my hopes solely in Dunst, but then again…you never know.

  1. dear "fisti",

    you are vile, immature TRASH and i have absolutely no respect for you. who the fuck are you to bash natalie portman (oscar, golden globe, BAFTA, SAG, and BFCA winner for BLACK SWAN) just to hype up some blonde bimbo like kirsten? i actually LIKED kirsten dunst before i read this satanical worship of her, now i realize that she is one of the bad people like annette & julianne. lol at you thinking she will EVER be as good as björk, emily watson, nicole kidman, or charlotte gainsbourgh, four CLASSY women who elevated lars von trier films to new heights.

    and of course you bring my name into it where it doesn't belong, just because i am a portman fan. love how you all make excuses to attack her for no reason, blaming her "fans." stop being a sheep and get your own opinion.

    love,
    meiji

    p.s. tell mcteague and guany i said hey <3 i hope they got the chrysanthemums i sent them for the death of their dreams.

  2. Your hilarious my friend...i didn't realive you slit your wrists over la'Portman. If you'd actually read my post with an ounce of subjectivity you'd see that I didn't completely bash Natalie. I even said that she is very good at times. I like her, but I LOVE Dunst, so 'color me bitter' but this was how I was feeling at the moment.

    So you can bash Bening and Moore with no substantial reason but I can't joke around about Portman's undeserved Oscar win?

    PS, I'll say hi to McTeague and Guany for you :-D

  3. MELANCHOLIA looks silly, pretentious, and stupid. So, it definitely IS the BLACK SWAN of this year. I'm definitely seeing it though, lol.

  4. i love how when i "bash" actresses it's for no substantial reason and yet the ONLY reason people hated portman was because bjorkrazy, jamal, and i were fans of her. nothing to do with her acting ability, just a pathetic personal vendetta. sad.

    please tell camille i said hello too, he is my only friend still there. and tell erikdean he's a child molesting little CUNT who banned me for no reason.
