I really wanted to post the ending conversation in the now lost "favorite scenes" thread but couldn't find a clip. It's just amazing.

@Xepera maSet  The ending was pretty abrupt but I think it worked given the themes of the twist.

over-all, I really loved it a lot. It was a great film and the twist at the end really got to me as someone who seeks both enlightenment and to be an archaeologist.

@Xepera maSet  I literally just started watching Black Mountain Side. I just began studying to be an archaeologist and I've been in a Lovecraftian mood this week since watching In The Mouth of Madness this week so I'm excited.

Also, In The Mouth of Madness was fantastic. I need to finish Carpenter's Apocalypse triology. I think Mouth of Madness is movie to get Lovecraft's atmosphere the most correct honestly. It might have replaced The Thing as my favorite Carpenter movie.

What did you think of BMS???

I've actually never read that. I'm gonna have to add it to my list. Hmm, bdsm seems appropiate.

Dionysius is cool, the first time I came in contact with that energy was a more unstable one based off of some punk stuff I was doing and Sid Vicious. It's actually hilarious that you bring up the BDSM connection cause I'm wearing bondage stuff tomorrow (for fashion.)

I think a good retelling of Dionyssian stuff is Kill Your Boyfriend which was meant to be a modern take on doing the whole Bonnie and Clyde thing. It's about how Dionyssius was said to work his female followers into a mad frenzy.

Marilyn Manson's new album also is a pretty good take on it due to it's Saturnalia themes as a hailing of Dionysius was commong during Saturnialia celebrations. I'd recommend reading the wiki of Saturnalia.

I'm not quite sure about the Apollon connection but to me, Dionysius just seems like a dude who wants to have fun and is a like debaucheraus but he's extremely jovial about it. He has some trickster elements, I think, but not in the conventional way.

That is a fairly good assessment. When I hear of Dionysus, I immediately picture satyrs and nymphs and this Greek myth of a frenzied Bacchic rite that ended badly with a mother tearing her son to shreds from being in such a jovially inebriated state. Talk about a hangover.

It makes the most sense to me. Carthasis to let go and prove to yourself that you can let go whenever you need to but keeping some as a balance because you don't need to let go of everything and it's nice to remember some exeriences as it makes you strong and life more interesting.

Yeah I think it's the best way. On one side I really need the catharsis and I need it, like, months ago back in July. On the other I certainly have acted impulsively before and sold/trashed/destroyed things I later regretted. This is a nice middle ground.
