TANGERINE

I spotted a copy of TANGERINE at the library; I couldn’t believe it.  
I had wanted to shoot GOLDFISH on an iPhone and people thought that was so stupid.
TANGERINE looked great.
I live in one of the “bad” parts of Toronto, and there are translady hookers all over the place.  Exactly like furries, transsexuals are so, so fascinating. People have dreamt of human-animal hybrids for millennia, but now we have actual furries. But unlike furries, many or most of whom fantasize about surgical remodification, transsexuals have the technology. Is it good or bad or mental craziness? I dunno. It’s just fucking remarkable.

I loved TANGERINE, I was totally sold on it. And that final scene totally got me.
If only they’d been able to make movies back in the Roman Empire; I wonder what the hell we’d be able to see. This movie was such a great look at life in the overlooked realms of poverty and non-engagement in society and emotional desperation.  
It’s not for everyone, but man, this movie knocked me out.  
Simple but beautiful story about friendship. Totally moved me.
