Day 18

Oh look! Once again, I'm not dead. I could say that I've been really busy, and that would be true. I'm in my penultimate (don't you love that word?) semester at my University and I'm this close (----) to getting my degree. So things are a bit hectic right now. But really, there's been times that I could have blogged, I just haven't gotten around to it until now. So without further ado ('cause really, you people know the drill by now):

Day 18: Modify

Before I say anything, and I mean anything about this movie, I should warn you that it is GRAPHIC. Extremely graphic. This movie (and the trailer as well) contains scenes where people are being: pierced, tattooed, suspended from hooks, operated on, scarred and burned. Proceed at your own risk. That being said, I really, really loved this movie. It's a documentary about body modification in all of its various forms. From simply putting on your makeup in the morning to going out and having someone shove meat hooks in your back, this movie covers it all. It's a great piece, very thought provoking. It takes on issues like: What exactly is body modification? And what's the difference between modification and mutiliation? While the movie tends to center around individuals who are in the "industry" (piercers, tattoo artists, etc.) it does try to provide a variety of different opinions and view points on the subject matter.
Like I said before, this movie isn't exactly for the squeamish. But all in all, it's worth seeing. Personally, I gave it ★★★★.

If you are interested, please feel free to check out this nifty trailer I dug up for you guys. But please keep in mind that like the movie, the trailer is extremely GRAPHIC, and is certainly NOT for 'all audiences':

P.S. (I always seem to have one of these, don't I?) If you've seen the movie, I'd love to know what you thought of it! Share your thoughts and opinions with me here in the comments if you'd like!

P.P.S. I'm really really really going to try to blog more often. I want to hurry up and finish this movie series so that I can move on to bigger and better things!
