2004.1002.2109::The odd thing about being a movie buff
[ ]
When you've spent the better part of your life watching just about every movie you've had the opportunity to watch, your mind gets plenty filled with odd movie facts and/or movie plots. Some you have a good recollection of, like the funny lines from Pulp Fiction.

I'm currently suffering, however, from the oddest sense of deja vu watching Before Sunrise. For some reason I remember watching the scene where Ethan Hawke describes seeing his grandmother behind the rainbow of the spray hose, as well as a general inkling of the listening booth scene, but honestly, I don't really recall ever seeing this movie before.

Of course, I couldn't describe the plots/characters/settings of Damage, All the Mornings in the World, or Romeo is Bleeding, and I've definitely seen those. I hate it when movies slip through the cracks.

Maybe I'm just getting old...

It might just be the movie.... I felt the same way and I saw it in the theater so I knew I hadn't seen it.

Before Sunset was the same way for me....of course, it was because it was so simliar to Before Sunset. However, as a character film, it was still good (ignoring the fact I like Ethan Hawke because he reminds me of my friend Drake)

[User Picture]I just saw Before Sunrise again, and there's lots that I didn't remember. I remembered the spray thing and the graveyard. I didn't remember that Delpy had a shirt on under her dress until they got the wine, and when they started walking around again, she didn't. I'm now sure they had sex, even though she said they wouldn't.
