What I Snack on in Movie Theaters
popcorn and sometimes twizzlers
Are you a Netflix employee?
Interests are documentary film, true crime, serial killers, neurological disorders, graphic design. I tend to dislike popular movies. Many of the movies I like seriously piss people off for some reason. For example, I did the research and was assistant editor for the movie "Zoo", a documentary about "animal lovers." It played Sundance, Cannes, and many other festivals.
The majority of people seem to take the view that movies are meant to make you "feel good" and that's a perfectly valid feeling, but I don't feel that way. I think if a movie can take you out of yourself and make you feel anything from disgust, repulsion, horror, sadness, joy effectively, it has done its job.
I've made a film called "Waiting for NESARA" with my husband that has just been released to DVD and Netflix. It's played festivals around the world and is used as part of several universities curriculum (on religious movements and 9/11 based-religions.) It's also been written about in the recent anthology "Everything you know about God is Wrong" by Neil Gaiman, Russ Kick, and Richard Dawkins.
Shot on location in Utah in the months between September 11th, 2001 and the start of the war in Iraq, WAITING FOR NESARA documents the true story of The Open Mind Forum, a messianic group of Salt Lake City ex-Mormons, and the radical faith that binds them together in the wake of 9/11. The group anxiously await the implementation of NESARA - a miraculous secret law hundreds of years in the making - that they believe was blocked and covered up by the Bush administration. The group believes that the 9/11 attacks were Bush's first attempt to delay NESARA's implementation, and that the Iraq war will be his second. Guided by constant internet updates from New Age gurus, the group believes NESARA will abolish the IRS, remove George Bush from office, expose him as a reptilian alien, distribute millions to the worthy few, and install a UFO-flying Jesus Christ as America's new leader. As the deadline for Bush's War on Iraq approaches, the group struggles to remain united, positive, and retain a sense of control - channeling all of their faith and prayers toward the desperate hope that the UFO allies will intervene in time to prevent it, ensure NESARA's implementation, and bring about a new golden age.
Somewhat akin to the experience of showing up late to a party and finding all your friends already drunk and/or stoned. —Daniel Wible, FILM THREAT
Extraordinary movie…capture(s) a unique form of Western insanity at its most jaw dropping. – THE NERVE MAGAZINE
My husbands film, "Elevator Movie" is on Netflix now too. It tends to really freak people out and piss them off, but it's certainly, as one of the reviews says, "Not for everyone."
It's a surreal b&w 16mm film about a pervert and a born-again christian that get stuck in an elevator for a very, very long time.

Fans of early David Lynch and other low-budget, absurdist auteurs will be delighted by Elevator Movie, a sick and sincere slice of hopeless existentialism and despair. - DVD TALK
Clearly inspired by early Lynch, Buñuel, Cronenberg, and even the recent work of James Fotopoulos. And if you know anything at all about any of these filmmakers you'll rightly conclude that Elevator Movie firmly belongs under that prickliest of classifications:
Not For Everyone. --FILM THREAT
Just wanted to add:
I hate things like the Academy Awards and listings from the AFI telling us what the best movies are. This, to me, is complete bullshit. The Oscars are much worse than the AFI because they consistantly list terrible movies and movie stars.
The whole concept in general though is pretty ridiculous to me, as they leave out so many great movies, and can't possibly capture all of them with a list of 100.
Movie watching is a completely subjective experience. Duh.

I'm going to post a review of Elevator Movie tommorrow. I also just watched Waiting for Nesara.It was very interesting to me because I know a cult in NC that is eerily similar- claiming their DNA is encoded ensuring thats their ticket outta here, showing photos of clouds that they claim are pictures of angels or wrathful of benevolent beings. I was wondering if Jim, the Nesara spokesman, had any connection with Elizabeth Claire Prohet or Church Universal & Triumphant as much of what he spoke on-St. Germain, "the violet flame" are from her teachings.
