Anika:Are you into film? What good films have you seen lately?
Annie:There’s a really dark film called Leap Year. That was… a friend of a friend’s friend, is John Waters and he recommended it. So we went to see it. It’s about a lonely woman in Mexico who starts having an affair with a guy who, errr…. like, there’s a lot of sex in the movie. It starts off with him slapping her during sex to, like, test the waters. You can tell she gets into it. So there’s crazy, intense, S&M style degradation. But…. you can tell there’s actual affection between them. But the intensity and pain in the scenarios gets more and more intense. I mean, I was kinda watching…. few things shock me, but this was shocking. And deeply disturbing. But really well made. A great film.
Anika:Would you ever consider directing?
Annie:Ohhh… I don’t know. I know that I typically think in colours and more abstract ideas, to write. I don’t think about music or chords, that kind of building blocks stuff… so maybe it could work the other way. But this movie, Leap Year; don’t get it confused- there’s like an Amy Adams film where she falls in love with a chipper Irish lad…
Anika:I’ll be watching that one and be like: ‘Hmm, it’s not as dark as I was expecting’
Annie:‘So wait, when does Amy Adams get pissed on?’ ‘I’m waiting for the water sports scene!’. I hope they make an American remake and cast Amy Adams.
Anika:That would be… pretty interesting.
Annie:‘Hmmm, this is great but when does Amy Adams get her nipples burned with cigarettes? Hmm’.
