I took Fat Mac to see a movie about auld, demented guys doing their thing, in the hope that it might trigger some realisations for him. It didn’t work. He insisted on talking about maths afterwards, when we analysed what we’d just watched. I think that maths is his fall-back conversation, perhaps. He snored throughout several portions of the movie, but fortunately hardly anyone in the audience noticed.
The movie was Nebraska. I thought that Nebraska had two good points about it, and several bad points.
Firstly, the background music was good. Secondly, the feelgood factor about being demented but still being able to go to the pub every now and then – I thought that might appeal to Fat Mac.
But hardly anyone in the movie actually acted for more than a minute or two. Bruce Dern acted, from time to time, and Stacy Keach did as well. The storyline wasn’t believable.
Fat Mac said that he thought that “Ultimate Fail, Drunk People Compilation #4″on YouTube was a more relevant movie, possibly because it has a number in the title.
