Kung Fu Hustle and The Aristocrats

Neil Gaiman have both made me stop and take more note of Kung Fu Hustle. It looks pretty darn good, although somehow I suspect the actual movie features a lot of the awful swing music from the opening and absolutely none of The Sweet that plays at the end. Goddamn lying trailers. The look and texture are striking, though. I definitely will be there.

He also praises The Aristocrats by Paul Provenza and Penn Jillette. He says, "It seems, on the face of it, rather unlikely that a film in which a hundred comedians talk about and tell a particularly obscene joke, of the kind that comedians tell other comedians rather than the public, could be a really beautiful meditation on art and personal style and individual magic and what it means to be human, of boundaries and what it means to cross them, but that's what Paul and his editor have made out of the hundred hours of footage they taped."
