I saw "Batman Begins" I felt bad after watching it. I hate that I like to feel something different after a hard day at work then making homemade pizza and drying out jalapeno peppers. I am not writing a review of the nice film I am more or less talking about the general way that movies make me feel. I really get depressed if I watch a move and afterwards I feel depressed. I know it seems counter-intuitive but really it happens. The last movie that made me feel like this was Star Wars 6 the one where a small and whiny man becomes one of my favorite heroes Darth Vader.
Watching Katie Holmes was like actually being in the torture scene in Lost - only instead of being kissed by a beautiful women in the end you actually get hit on the head by Mr. Eco. Even when the last seemingly un-needed wrap up scene when Mrs. Tom Cruise was wearing a silk shirt on a windy day I was thinking - this is what it is like to see Demi Moore - this is insanity masquerading as sexual allurement - I was moved to tears.
Batman Begins was a movie that made more sense as a vehicle for something. It was as if it made itself like it was the child of some artificial intelligence some vast conspiracy of blather. Katie Holmes was only the most scary part of the film - a shadow of a human or a image of lost.
What is it that makes actors creepy, is it the devolution of the public persona? Is it that what used to pass as gossip is now "news" That what a person does in personal life like Bill Clinton should effect their work life? Was it the fake hallucinatory effects of the movie - were we supposed to suspend disbelief and then our grips on reality? I could not even approach a sense of story - I think that I was not "in the mood" for a movie. I really may should have just been asleep as they say here in the South.
