[Comments] (4) The Five Obstructions: I'd never heard of this movie or the other one but Sumana rented it and it was pretty good. A filmmaker holds his idol captive and compels him to do remakes of his 1967 film The Perfect Human, subject to arbitrary and ridiculous restrictions. It's got a real Bond villain feel to it in parts.

Most of the remakes are good (esp. the first one, which has the most arbitrary restrictions) but like all remakes not as good as the original, which is an extra on the DVD and is really amazing. You know who would really enjoy The Perfect Human is Kris. Kris, check it out and see if I lie.

Ahh. One of my favorites. I have nothing to add, just: Yes. What you said.

I really enjoyed The Five Obstructions but I guess I didn't understand The Perfect Human because it just totally bored me.

It's great because it's a nature documentary on humans made by aliens.

Oh. That does make it a lot more interesting. I can't believe I missed that.
