The film that finally got me to attend a graveyard screening was Nicholas Roeg's masterpiece DON'T LOOK NOW. I've been wanting to see this film forever - and I'm glad I finally did - only I wish it was in a entirely different place and time. What's my beef, you might ask with the audience at the cemetery? Oh, I don't know...where should I start?
1) People who think they're watching TV in their living - so they talk at normal voice levels about things that have nothing to do with the film they are supposed to be watching. Drunken dickheads.
2) People who feel the need to stand up and slowly navigate through the crowd blocking the screen, repeatedly. The same dozen or so people kept getting up and walking around. Morons.
3) Chain Smoking idiots. Almost everyone around me had either a cigarette–or even worse–a cigar lit at all times. Fucking gross. Don't choke, bastards.
4) The family of 8 that arrived HALFWAY THROUGH THE FILM and decided to plop down right next to us and talk and smoke. Did I mention they were all FAT!
5) People who laugh constantly at anything that happens onscreen - whether it's funny or not. Nothing in DON'T LOOK NOW was funny. Nothing.
6) People who just had take phone calls or text their asshole friends during the film.
"Carly, oh my god, you did what? Oh, it's okay, I'm only at the movies, I can talk..."
7) The idiot woman who came back from the porta-potty and stood right in front of me for like 2 minutes before I yelled at her to "sit the fuck down".
8) Did I mention we had to pay $10 each for this bullshit?Well, anyway DESPITE all this - I did absolutely love the film, even if my friends didn't as much. I loook forward to seeing it again one day in peace.
