I went to see "Disturbia"

I flew home to Fort Worth for an interview today. Iona was left with a friend and her son, both of whom are accompanying us on this trip (in case anyone's worried!). The interview irritated me majorly if I'm honest. I don't seem to be able to express myself in a way that people find acceptable in interviews. I think that I tend to speak too fast (which I don't think helps -I was talking to someone on the phone this evening and was asked what language I spoke). Couple this with a tendency to be direct in my answers and I can come across as abrupt on occasions. So, frustrated at the moment folks.

In the evening I went to see "Disturbia," about a disturbed kid (he sees his Dad die at the start of the film) who's been placed under house arest and, out of boredom starts to observe the neighbors. Most of it's tame but he realizes that he fancies the new neighbor on the block and that David Morse (who I still think of as being in St. Elsewhere 20yrs after I saw it) isn't all he's cracked up to be.

He then goes into overdrive observing the guy, trying t build a case against him. Morse figures out he's being watched, however, and so the two play a cat and mouse game trying to figure out what is going on with the other. This takes a little too long I think as they build up to the eventual conclusion of the film.

I'm surprised the film is a PG-13. When the guy is watching the girl he fancies, it can feel a little creepy and voyeuristic in places but because it's a PG-13 it can't really gwt twisted enough to get scary. Teenage girls are probably the only people who'll get scared by that film.
