Late on New Year's Eve (i.e. early on New Year's Day Morning), after the so-called party had wound all the way down, Daryl and I and our friend Dave, having imbibed one to four too many glasses of whiskey, decided to watch the movie that shall remain nameless. I struggle to remember much of this viewing but can remember fast-forwarding through a great deal of it, struggling to endure. But we did manage to watch at least one scene in its entirety.
This was the one scene that featured Daryl and I as a couple of moronic office peons. For reasons too pointless to explain, there is a moment when Daryl orders me to "Stay calm" and I reply "I am calm!" but holler it in such way as to betray the fact that I am not calm AT ALL.
Watching "Zero Dark Thirty" a second time I realized there is a moment when a colleague of Jessica Chastain orders her to "Stay calm" and she replies "I am calm!" but hollers it in such a way as to betray the fact that she is not calm AT ALL.
In other words, it is quite clear the potential Oscar winner for Best Actress totally ripped me off.
|You're welcome, Chastain.|
