The key to enjoying modern cinema, perhaps.
Dr Dork is aware of the detriment that the culture of merit-free celebrity has upon civilised society. He tries to avoid TV...apart from Dorky things.
Dr Dork occasionally, for various and variable reasons, inflicts aspects of his musical or literary tastes upon his readers. He has only - indirectly - referenced contemporary cinema once before.
Tonight's Film at Château Dork: Little Miss Sunshine (LMS)
Dr Dork loathes formulaic film. Dr Dork enjoys films that break the mold. Or is that mould ? Unlike much of the current commercial cause célèbre, such can still, at times, be considered an art form.
Dr Dork had been recommended LMS by a few members of his desiccated gene pool, and had read a few rave reviews.
Rave reviews are usually the kiss of death at Château Dork. However...Dr Dork needed an extra movie to complete his VideoStoreCheapoDeal today. LMS effectively cost a dollar. Expectations were low.
Expectations were surpassed.
Conflict of interests should be identified:
1. Dr Dork has had a schoolboy crush on Toni Collette since Muriel's Wedding.
2. Dr Dork perhaps sees too much of himself in Steve Carrell's previous roles.
Dr Dork enjoys ice cream. French vanilla, preferably. Enough said.
Pageants debase and demean humanity. Enough said.
