Rocky Horror

Tim Curry
I love Rocky Horror Picture show. And I've always felt Tim Curry's performance is the greatest male role in film history. Am I wrong or merely drunk?

I got a lot to hide.

Although I did watch the movie Flight and thought it was a very good metaphor for substance abuse once it becomes habitual. Denzel plays the "functional drunk" perfectly. And the message I've gotten from drunks is that they can actually fly planes upside down even when they are drunk, something no one else can do. So it's the bigger picture of not how the drinking affects you, but how you cater to the drinking...and what lengths you go to to protect your habit. I debate if the disease is chemical or psychological. In my case it's an unfortunate role I must play to fuck with the status quo, but others seem sometimes caught in the status quo for the sake of the status quo. Do they choose to drink because it maintains the pattern or because the pattern is the only pattern they feel comfortable with? Or are they self destructive as a passive-aggressive displaced anger management warrior? It's a delicate subject and Flight stands out as a very good handling of it. And I'm a queer closet drunk.
