Well, I knew it wouldn't be long before I'd have an embarrassantee post.
Except this time it really wasn't my fault.
We were all watching the film, Dead Man Walking as a class at school because it is our movie for our Film Study section this year. For those of you who don't know about it, Dead Man Walking is basically about a guy who rapes and murders two teenagers and is put in jail and on death row. Then he gets this nun to try help him prove he is "innocent". She tries but fails and she then turns into his spiritual adviser to prepare him for when he is killed by the state through a lethal injection.
So, it is a very dramatic film. I'm not complaining because I'm all for drama and all. Except, towards the end they show him being strapped to the table with the drip going in and the ..erm.. lethalness slowly going through the pipe. And there's a whole audience watching him die.
Then they show, between all of this, him and this other guy (who didn't get sentenced because he was found not guilty) raping and murdering those two kids..
And obviously my brain was just like, "no guys, no way" because the period ended before we had finished watching him die and I managed to make it out of the class before fainting.
Who faints at school after watching a movie?
Well, yeah, apparently I do...
In my defense though, a guy said to me afterwards "it was just a movie, it's not even real you shouldn't take it so seriously" and laughed at me because I fainted. I was still drowsy and just patted him on the head and said "poor, innocent, stupid boy" and sent him on his way. Ze fact is, although it is a movie, it is real. Things like that happen every day and you get ignorant giraffes like that guy who can't see further than the movie.
I think between watching this guy die (even though he was guilty) and then watching those two teenagers being raped and stabbed at the same time just made my subconscious really really upset. Maybe it was having a bad day or something, I don't know.
Oh well, if you feel like a party just rent Dead Man Walking and watch your friends drop like flies, the acting in the movie is tops... Unless you're a fly, like me. Then stay awaaay.
