Do you remember the experiments they performed on spiders to see how psychoactive drugs affected their web-spinning abilities? Here is an undrugged web, along with ones created under the influence of mescaline, caffeine, LSD, marijuana, chloral hydrate, and Benzedrine (for you young folks, essentially meth).
I was moved, delighted, amazed, and heartened by Richard Linklater's new movie Boyhood. It covers 12 years in a fictional family's life, and was filmed over 12 years. The cast is amazing and it tugs your heart like his movies often can. It will be a felony if this doesn't win an Oscar for best picture, Ethan Hawke, and Patricia Arquette, for the script, director, supporting actors, and more. I also always love his inobtrusive, delicate camerawork and this ensemble is stunning--Ellar Coltrane and Linklater's daughter...just wow. I really suck at reviews. Just go see it. It made my heart sing.
