Felt (6/26/15, D: Jason Banker)

Was browsing some sites and found this movie. Seems a bit too on the nose at times and it has two quotes from Fat Fuck in a Wheelchair, Harry Knowles, so that kind of bothers me. Seems like it did some festivals last year, I think.

Limited release on the 26th but also getting a VOD for the 21st of this month.

Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that reappropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence.
I'm always fascinated at how studios cut or alter a trailer to be the safe green and then have a Red band trailer as well. Always interesting alterations in the visuals. Specifically when Amy is next to those flowers.

Spoilering the trailers to not take up so much space.
Spoiler:
Clean trailer:

Interesting posters...

Harry Knowles is in a wheelchair now? What happened? That's a fascinatingly bizarre premise.

This reminds me of the fact that I had some sort of idea that I thought was good a little while ago, and in my infinite wisdom forgot to write it down.

Wait, he isn't now? I've always seen him in a wheelchair. I've never seen the man stand.

It was July 2012, and Harry Knowles was working up a sweat. Eighteen months earlier, the creator-owner-figurehead of Ain't It Cool News collapsed and had back surgery to treat the effects of spinal stenosis, a chronic condition stemming in part from a 1996 fall that left him intermittently reliant on a wheelchair. So now he was walking on a treadmill at a clinic near his Austin home as part of his physical therapy.
...
On Jan. 24, 1996, Knowles was helping his father pack up after a memorabilia show at the City Coliseum in Austin. Wheeling a heavy dolly down a loading ramp, he tripped on a hose and injured his back, partially paralyzing his legs.
Don't know if he still is or isn't.

almost 3 years later... you'd hope he's walking.
