I include this post not just as a ‘hey have you seen, did you like blank movie’ post. I actually have a question behind it that relates to writing. The question concerns accountability as a writer. I love Bjork. From all the way back when she was with The Sugarcubes, all through her solo career, to the present day, I have been a fan. Last night at the local Blockbuster movie rental outlet, I came across the movie Dancer In The Dark. I saw Bjork’s unmistakable face on the cover and almost dropped the other movies I had in hand. Literally. I rented the movie, ran home, and popped it in the player. ??????????????? (In that order) I can’t remember a movie ever leaving me feeling so violated. That is the only word I can think of to describe the sensation of having been emotionally used, played, and manipulated. Of course the movie had me in sobbing, choked tears at the end, but they weren’t the same kind of tears I shed at Beaches. I felt like I needed a counselor and perhaps a ‘kit’ to hand over to the police prior to having a long shower. I’m all about free speech. I’m not arguing that, but at what point does accountability come into play for a writer? Anyone else seen this little flick and felt the same way?
