The Value of Learning
I was desperately trying to remember the name of this film I saw about five years ago... A very edgy drama about a released mental patient tortured by a constant buzzing sound and the desire to kill. Sounds banal, and it obviously wasn't that memorable if I've forgotten it, but never mind. Pointless story over, I was googling serial killer movie buzzing, and I came across this paper assignment for a New York public school, taught by one 'Ms. Losito'... The paper assignment is, and I'm not kidding, "Serial Killers or Famous People with mental disorders"... Now, maybe I'm going against my own supposed ethic by calling out the absurdity of a random high school teacher's assigment, but fuck it, if I contradict myself, etc... I like the idea of having the option of writing about a crazy murderer, or just a crazy succesful person because, after all, the two groups are at once mutually exclusive and exchangeable! I would have written about OJ Simpson as a kind of friendly meeting point between the two groups.
