Tracks (2014) with Mia Wasikowska
Tracks is based on the true story of Robyn Davidson. Robyn traversed 2700 km of spectacular but unforgiving Australian desert on a phenomenal solo trek from Alice Springs to Uluru and the Indian Ocean. She was accompanied only by her loyal dog and four unpredictable camels.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
An interpretation: Marriage has the power to sustain and destroy. The power to sustain can come from feelings of bliss (usually experienced at the beginning) and hope for the future (usually children). The power to destroy comes from feelings of contempt and excess criticism. However fear of experiencing a void, from either annihilation or divorce, is worse and often avoided ..even at the cost of falling prey to the destructive forces.
"remember who the real enemy is"
An interpretation: The film shows what can happen when economic class differences are enforced by the Government. They become structured rather than fluid. The possibility for advancement is eliminated ..except by winning the hunger games ..inspiring a false sense of hope.

Frances Ha with Greta Gerwig
I don’t think she was a “.. goofball who couldn’t seem to get anywhere” (like the LA Times said). She manages to stay loosely connected to a dance company, against all odds, until something came of it. Actually lands a gig as a choreographer. HA !
Under the Skin with Scarlett Johansson
The film was shot on location in Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands.
Johansson, who appears in a tangled black wig, is not immediately recognizable as she cruises through Glasgow and the surrounding countryside picking up men in a van equipped with hidden video cameras. Like candid camera, their reactions are entirely real and authentic. Their stories offer a glimpse of society from the point of view of the ultimate outsider. Muwahahaha

Her: a memoir by Christa Parravani
Beginning in the womb identical twins develop a bond that goes beyond sisterhood ..when one dies there’s a 50% chance the other will follow within two years. ~ “I starved ..lied ..swallowed pills ..cut myself ..crashed cars ..fucked indiscriminately ..checked myself into mental institutions ..I wanted to chase my sister into the afterlife.”
During life “..it wasn’t uncommon to remember something that had happened to my twin ..as though it had happened to me.”
To survive “..my task was to unravel the tight braid of memory-rope we’d woven ..to unwind and unwind until I was able to take my strand and lay it out beside the length that was hers.”

Merrick Biotech. How may I help you?
Yeah, I was wondering if you could get someone who can explain to me why my insurance policy is sitting downstairs on my fucking sofa!
