Garden State

Written By: Gary on October 3, 2004 One Comment

So I finally saw it! It was really excellent. Kind of a Beautiful Girls meets Lithium… Zach and Natalie were perfect for the parts he had this lost/numb look when needed and she’s hysterical. She seemed really young in the movie reminding me a lot of her character Marty in Beautiful Girls (but that was 8 years). I will need the DVD for the director’s commentary (and any extras). Even the not funny scenes were funny in some way. I laughed lots! Out loud.

I always try to figure out what to say without giving up the movie… If you think you’ll like it, you probably will. It’s really got the gears turning in my head, I need the life altering experiences that some of the characters wen through so I can wake up and get moving with my life. Thanks to the motivators Maya and Jenni and everyone else whose been talking about this… I was halfway there when I remembered tissue, or more specifically that we didn’t have any, but I survived. The funny stuff offset the rest a bit…

A few good quotes (not in any order): A friend’s mom:

Oh… guys? Don’t stay in here all day. I had to take the batteries out of the carbon monoxide detector; it was beeping all night.

Sam (Natalie):

If you don’t laugh at yourself, life is going to seem a lot longer than you want it to.

Andrew (Zach):

We may not always be as happy as you always dreamed we’d be, but for once, let’s just allow ourselves to be whatever it is we are.

Sam (Natalie):

I know it hurts. But it’s life, and it’s real. And sometimes it fucking hurts, but it’s life, and it’s pretty much all we got.

    hmmm…so, i’m still having some trouble figuring out of it worked for me all the way through. i was really unhappy with the end right after i saw it…but have rethought some parts of it. overall, i laughed a lot, also. i thought that most of it was brilliant. i appreciated so much of it…will probably take another look later…
