I was tasked with picking a movie to watch for the next book group meeting (our literacy is slipping). My first choice for a movie to torture somebody else with is always Big Bad Love. But then I thought, no, maybe Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus, another of my personal favorites that no one else I've ever met has ever seen, would be just the ticket. But then I saw Synecdoche New York mentioned in an article on really significant movies that no one will ever see and I went, "Ooooooo, oooooo, oooooo, that's it! That's it!" By forcing the book group to sit through Synecdoche New York, I could single-handedly double the number of people who have seen the film world wide!
But the weird, spooky, eerie, spine tingly thing was that when I placed my pre-order with L'Zon and it came back with the customers-who-ordered-that-also-ordered-this screen, guess what Synecdoche New York fans also ordered: Let the Right One In, my own personal favorite vampire movie that no one else has ever seen. How did they know? Seems all of the people who never see one of my favorite movies never see the others either. Spooky, if you ask me.
