Finished Burnt Money

Yeah you need to see this movie. I caught part of it on Logo a while back and had been meaning to finish it so I bought it. And I am glad I did. It is a really good movie and it brought my foreign language film collection up to 4 (2 spanish, 1 french, and 1 hebrew), but back to the movie. Basically the movie is an armored truck robbery gone wrong. It revolves around El Nene, El Cuervo, and Ángel. El Nene and Ángel are in a relationship that kind of reminds me of Beecher and Keller in season 4 when they are fighting, they are an item but they aren't (I know that sounds confusing but I do not want to give anything away, just watch the movie and you will understand). El Cuervo is annoying at times but I do enjoy his character. And to be honest I was so shocked by the ending. It was a film that I knew how it would end I just did not know how they were going to do it. It was a real "Holy Shit" moment when it did happen. So yeah buy it/rent it/netflix it do whatever it is that you do to see it. I would go for the buy it because it is a great movie and there is a good chance that you will want to watch it repeatedly.

Was the scene in the restroom about half way through the movies one of the weirdest blow jobs you have ever seen in a movie?

I'm on it... your movie recs are always good.

I cannot believe I live in fucking New Orleans and we don't get LOGO.

Goddamn televangelists and shopping networks.

Glad you think so.

How did The 24th Day turn out? Did they ever send you one that worked?

Loved it, thanks! One good thing about Netflix is they are fast about replacements.

Cool beans. I am not aware if you saw my other post a little bit back but in case you did not I would also recommend that you see Shelter<,i>, Latter Days, and Yossi and Jagger. All are really good. the last one is a Foreign film and like Burnt Money it has not been dubbed in to English so you are going to have to do a little reading but it is so worth it.

I don't actually mind subtitles, as long as I'm not trying to read them while sitting behind some idiot with big hair.

Thanks for the recs.
