(My) Life Imitates Film

August 1, 2009

Just remembered to repost this now that this new home for Steve’s Not Nice is kind-of sort-of unpacked.

For many years, I think, Pedro Almodovar was directing my life. That’s when I would see things like an old minivan full of clowns driving down the street. Clowns in full makeup and costume, not just goofy people. It was weird, but it was quirky. My life had these bizarre but whimsical moments.

I still have bizarre moments, but they’re less whimsical. For a while I thought maybe Guillermo del Toro had taken over the role of director. I was even more certain when I saw Pan’s Labyrinth.

But that was before I learned about Chris Rentzel, director of The Many Strange Stories of Triangle Woman. I’ve just seen the trailer and a description, but I’m pretty sure he’s directed a vignette or two of my life lately!
