On the way out of the field today I found a rabbit lying dead in the grass. It's eyes were eaten out by bugs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's a dead stump in the field that I sit on when I eat and I tasted pussy for the first time on the dead stump.
Day 63, Movie 94: Grosse Pointe Blank
I have always had a very strong connection to this film, because it reminds me of who I used to be.
You see, I don’t like talking about it, but I have depression and anxiety. I am not alone in this, but I am using this fact to prove a point. It can make you feel like you have no connection to society. Also, it can make you push others away; so, that you do not hurt them. It is the gift that keeps on giving.
Why am I blathering on about mental problems? Isn’t this just some cute little John Cusack action comedy? Well, not really. The entire film is a the journey of a person realizing that there may be a place for him in this world and that it is okay to care about things. Anyone can strive to overcome the stupid shit that goes on in their head and connect to other people. They can help and you won’t always feel so alone.
If it is not obvious yet, I love this damn movie. It is one of my personal favorites and one of the best films ever made about depression, anxiety and existentialism. Maybe I am reading too much into it and none of that is there. Who knows?
I will leave you with the last few lines and my favorite quote from the movie: “Some people say forgive and forget. Nah, I don't know. I say forget about forgiving and just accept. And... get the hell out of town.” Check it out and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.
I recently got the invite to my 10 year high school reunion....and my mind immediately went to this. I may not be a professional killer but some of Martin Blank's worries and anxiety is highly relatable, especially if you hated high school. Grosse Point Blank, presented in both VHS and DVD forms dranking 312. Also I didn't realized how the colors all match. #grossepointeblank#johncusack#joancusack#itsnotme#312beer#gooseisland312#vhs
