The Squee & The Whale

Last night I went to see The Squid & The Whale which I was initially annoyed about only being 81 minutes in length. By the end credits I was thanking the baby Jesus for its brevity as it was so painfully brilliant and so emotionally wrought that 81 minutes was all I could have stood.

But that's not the reason for this entry. The reason for this entry is that Volkswagen have a new ad campaign for the new Golf GTi. And it has the absolute cutest French Bulldog in it that you ever did see. And I spent the whole ad and about 5 minutes afterwards squeeing with delight about it. Anyone else who, like me, thinks that these dogs are the cutest things on earth should click here and also squee with delight. His name is Roscoe. He is to die for.

Squee!

Too cute!

But what did you think of "The Squid and the Whale?" Were there those scenes that you found absolutely painful and uncomfortable to watch? Like almost all of the scenes with the younger brother?

Actually it was the older brother and the dad scenes that really were painful and the scene towards the end right before the dad has a heart attack and he and his ex-wife are fighting in front of the kids was the absolute worst.

Very true. But it was the scenes with the younger brother that were just uncomfortable to watch. The library. The lockers. The bed, the beer and the panties...

Yes indeed. The whole film was pretty much uncomfortable viewing. Though for uncomfortable viewing, Spanking The Monkey is still up there.
