Stay (2006)

Sleeping Dogs Lie. Feature film. (2006, 97 mins) IMDB

...it's hard to believe this film was made...

C

rude. Gross.

A young woman wonders if she should tell her fiancée the whole truth about her past. When in university, she, I can't believe this is part of a film, blew her dog. I thought I heard wrong. Nope. This past event plays the central role of the film and the central theme. Should you be totally honest with your lover? Yes or no. The film shows the not surprising negative aspects of her telling him. It tears the relationship apart. To complicate matters, he's not the only one to find out.

I like the theme: how honest should you be with your lover, but this test of the case goes too far and doesn't make the film a romantic comedy. Far from romantic and with crude humour.

The camera shots and look felt like a cheap porn film. Was it shot with video instead of film? It looks cheap.

Having said that, there were moments that were charming. It could have been such a better film.

Day 109: Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Hold

Sunday, March 6, 2017 Note: Unedited writings from my notebook for this novel. Square bracket items represent added comments.
At 18:47 Office ... I barely remembered anything about this story... H as it really been three months? I guess it has. I put it out of my mind [so much so] that I barely remembered anything about this story. Not even the title. [Unreal!!!!!!] I had the general premise and an ending—enough I thought for a novel. What I lacked was a determination and desire to want to write it. Why bother… I wasn’t enjoying the process and I had no reason to believe the result wouldn’t be anything more than what’s gone before—nothing.

A homonym.
FAIRY—A fairy tale. A fairy godmother. Fairy—not a long, long way to run.
FERRY—A boat or ship to transport drunken Swedes back home from Copenhagen. It’s the Danish beer.

Day 2: Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Hold

Friday, November 18th, 2016 Note: Unedited writings from my notebook for this novel. Square bracket items represent added comments. ... There’s also poetic justice for this crew for what they did to the women they kept.... I t’s still Friday to me. [Writing early Saturday morning.] I wasn’t in bed until 6h and up at 14h. Then lots of errands. Lots of walking. Felt tired earlier—something different. I haven’t spent much time thinking about this story. I seemed to have put my mind into another lane. Not what I want. I was thinking too much about my future as a successful writer. Not simply being a writer, but a successful writer. One that makes a good living off or from it. That’s a better goal. So what to say about this story. No title. Oh. I did decide on something. She can’t die. Too much of a downer. That would seem to rule out a revenge aspect by the husband. Maybe she does it. These guys [the baddies] have to get it in the end. I was thinking about how she wants to sink the s…
