Day #22,295

Walk 12,585-12,593: downtown via Marietta

Movie #2184: Dark Horse (2011, Todd Solonz)

Wow, back to back Solonzs. That can be quite unsettling.
Here we have the story of Abe, the world's biggest asshole. He lives at home. He works for his dad. He does no work (the secretary has to do his work for him). He blames everyone else for everything. And most telling of all, he drives a Hummer!
There's also his fiance, the world's most depressing woman. Most of the film is made up of dream/hallucinations so it's hard to tell what's real and what's not. That helps.

Movie #2185: The Strange Affair Of Uncle Harry (1945, Robert Siodmak)

What a ridiculous tacked on happy ending! I've never seen anything so silly. The rest of the movie was wonderful although I didn't really see the need for murder - just leaving would have been fine.
