Through The Roof ‘n’ Underground, By Gogol Bordello
As we’re crossing border after border we realize that difference is none. It’s underdogs who, and if you want it, you always have to make your own fun. And as the upperdog leisurely sighing, the local cultures are dying and dying. The programmed robots are buying and buying, and a psycho load of freaks they are still trying and trying.
Just finished watching Wristcutters: A Love Story (2006).
It’s about a guy that kills himself, lands in a sort of alternate universe where all people that commit suicide go (which he says is just like the living world, only slightly worse). When he finds out his girlfriend also killed herself a month after he did, he sets off to find her with his friend. Along the way, they met a girl searching for a way back to the living world.
Honestly, the whole time all I could think about was Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alice sets off following the white rabbit, then attempts to find her way to an unknown place, claiming she wants to find her way home, only to realize she cannot go home until she finds herself. Wristcutters had the same theme. This whole theme of searching for something you don’t know, and only being able to find it when you stop looking and find yourself. I love it.
The end was perfection. But I won’t give anything away.
I highly recommend this movie, for sure.
And now I’m off to find the soundtrack for it, because to add to all this goodness, the music was great.
