Smiley face - trailer Video by SMILEY FACE - MySpace Video
This is the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. Anna Faris is great as the leading character. Her strength comes from the fact that she isn't playing a role in a romantic comedy. She behaves very gender neutral and seems to be very independent. Director Gregg Araki's first film The Living End was banned in the United States because it had a gay sex scene. All of his movies contain edgy counterculture themes and characters. This movie transported me back to my twenties with its comedic portrayal of the confusion and uncertainty of youth.
Are Women as Horny as Men? from Last Pictures - Video
This clip is great because it plays with gender roles. The reversal technique is also used in the Madwomen clip featured on my website. Its clever because it confronts stereotypes and expectations.
