Like I promised, here is what I have to say about this movie… Freakin awesome! Really. This movie got to me. I think I’ve been doing a pretty good job of managing my feelings and emotions regarding my forces exodus from Louisiana but sometimes the ghost from my past catch me. Talk about one of the scariest feelings ever. Have you ever been just fine one second and the next COMPLETELY overcome with every emotion you got? Yea, now you see why I run from these ghost. I don’t run very fast or even have to run often. The all-of-a-suddenness of being so very overwhelmed is the part that hurts. Well look, I’m talking entirely too much about me.
People don’t understand people is really the point I took from this movie. Their were very many parallels (maybe intentional) from this story to those I know of Hurricane Katrina. The place you are born and raised, the place that makes you what and who you are is now damaged and now you got somebody else (people you don’t know from Adam) coming out of the woodwork to tell you can’t be there.
Everyone is used to a certain amount of normal. If your normal is break out dance parties and being able to get a “go cup” when you leaving a bar, you know what you call that? Normal. Just like if you live in the bayou and can catch a fish with your bare hands, you the one that’s weird if you can’t figure out how to make a boat from the bed of a truck. All that to say, I’m hurt and whenever I think I’m healed, I get reminded that the scars I have aren’t going to go away.
So if you out there in them streets and you looking for me, I be hustling like a dog til my knees get weak… and trying my damn'edest to get back home.
Nah, back to the creativity that is Papier de Lys.
