Watch eeeet: Stories I wish I had written [contains stuff about old movies]

There are times when you encounter a story that’s so trippy and interesting and totally something you dig, and you just can’t help but wish that you wrote that story or that you can write something as close to fantastic as that story. I mean, you know what I mean, right? It could be a book or a movie – anything really – that makes you wish you thought of it first.

I haven’t been much of a reader for the last year or so, so these fantastic stories I’m referring to are actually movies that I’ve seen in the last few months. Just a warning, this post may contain some spoilers so if you haven’t seen any of these films – do a quick scroll, hurry! – and don’t want to know what happens in these movies, I suggest you turn away from this post now. Turn away, friend, and save yourself from, er, spoilers about old movies. Amsorrehhh..

Girl Crush Friday: Actress, writer, and cool girl Brit Marling

I’m writing about Brit Marling because I just saw Another Earth recently and holy crap it was gewd. Before I get to that let me tell you about how I discovered Brit Marling.

The first time I saw Brit Marling was in The East, a movie I caught on cable some time last year I think. It’s one of those quiet, charged films that you either love or hate. It’s about an operative (played by Brit) of a private intelligence company and she goes undercover to infiltrate an anarchist group that’s been covertly attacking big corporations. It’s a pretty interesting movie – emotional, makes you think, makes you feel slightly rebellious even. I was intrigued by Brit Marling (and Ellen Page! But that’s for another post). Brit just has this interesting aura about her. I googled the movie and found out that she wrote the movie with the director Zal Batmanglij. Great, she’s not only a talented actress, but she writes, too. Hashtag girl crushhh.
