i have a confession to make. last weekend i watched badlands...for the FIRST TIME. like, ever. this statement is especially embarrassing considering my strange fascination with sissy spacek (she is sooo creepy cool), the fact that badlands was made in my favorite decade (1973), and that it’s loved by my film nerd of a boyfriend (he works at the academy of motion pictures for chrissakes). how is it possible that i OWN legally blonde 1 & 2 (the sequel was a GIFT! true story, i swear) yet this classic had escaped me. well hot damn was it worth the wait. i'm a huge fan of lovers-on-the-lam movies and this one is a beautiful doozie. makes me wanna hit the open roads of montana, live in a tree house, and wear short shorts while i twirl baton, sans killing spree, obvz.
