Although I can't argue with the one for Hackers, which was: "Angelina Jolie and computers." [Nov. 29th, 2008|09:15 pm]

A couple months back, Alex oniugnip and I started keeping a Google spreadsheet of movies we wanted to see, or movies we'd seen and wanted to remember that we'd seen. Today I suggested we start including brief summaries of said movies; Alex assented and wrote a bunch of them:

Akira
Young boys in Neo-Tokyo ride bikes past neon lights, really fast. Some people have psychic powers. It's the future, in a post-apocalyptic sort of way, and nobody will talk about nuclear weapons because that's sort of taboo in Japan.
Dr. Strangelove
Everybody freaks out about nuclear weapons. They're taboo in Britain, America and Russia.
Winter Light
In Scandinavia somewhere, a priest worries about his faith and how he can't console his parishioners, one of whom is freaking out about nuclear weapons. (they're taboo in Scandinavia)
Breakin' and Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo
In response to mutually assured destruction during the Cold War, inner city youths in New York City develop a new kind of dancing, to vent about how they can't discuss nuclear weapons. (they're taboo)

You can see why I'm madly in love. Did I mention I'm madly in love?

Yeah! Thanks so much for sharing it with me!

Let's watch more Ingmar Bergman films at some point :)
