Hot Slut Of The Day!

The pigeon from Amour!

So I went to see the feel good movie of the year Amour last night and if you haven’t seen it and are planning to see, just do what I did: see at a movie theater that serves lots of booze. If you can find a theater that has a wine tap right next to your seat so you can just guzzle down the sweet nectar non-stop, even better! I read a ton of reviews when Amour came out in the US and I knew exactly what I was getting myself into when I sat down in that theater chair, but it was still painful to watch and I couldn’t have gotten through it without my best friend Pinot Noir (or Penis Yarn as I like to call him) by my side. Afterward as we were all walking out of the theater, some arty chick behind me said to her friend, “What a beautiful depiction of love,” or something like that. While she was thinking positive thoughts, I was busy wishing that a tsunami of extra-strength Prozac pills would hit my mouth.

Anyway, during the movie, a really hot, scene-stealing pigeon makes a cameo appearance. The pigeon was obviously there for symbolism purposes, but my ass was just happy to see a dumb ass, attention whoring pigeon act like an attention whoring pigeon. Pigeons always have to invade somebody’s personal space, but for once I was glad that a pigeon was invading someone’s personal space. It was the closest thing to comedy relief I was going to get.

I read that the pigeon scene was shot 12 times and that Michael Haneke (director of my other favorite feel good movies Funny Games and The Piano Teacher) kept trying to direct the pigeon. I left the theater feeling depressed as shit, but I probably wouldn’t have felt as depressed if during the credits they showed the bloopers from the pigeon scene.

And I can’t wait to see what the Amour pigeon wears to the Oscars tomorrow!
