Grey Gardens

This HBO film, an homage to the original documentary staring the ultimate ladies the Beale-Bouviers, has been consuming my mind since I first watched it a few weeks ago. I'm constantly trying to inject their language into my everyday life, for example:

Mom=Motha Darling

I'm excited= This could be my big breaak (with a corresponding and timely leg shake)

Drea=Big Edie

And so on, and so on...

Watch it. Then rent the documentary and watch it. Then let me borrow the documentary, cause I can't find that shit anywhere. Thanks.

  1. I saw this movie and it, too stayed with me for days afterwords. I enjoyed the performances immensely (I love love LOVE Jessica Lange and was happy to see that she won an Emmy for her role as Big Edie), but found the premise super disturbing. Can you imagine living in that much filth or being that attached to your mother? It's just wrong and terribly sad.
