The other day I was just sitting at home, watching my Criterion Collection Blu-ray of "Garden State" and wondering, "Why can't there be more movies like this?"
Not like: "Why can't there be more movies that are indie and twee, with themes resembling that of 2004's hipster classic?" That would be ridiculous. I want to know why someone can't come up with a film that is exactly like "Garden State." Except instead of a manic pixie Natalie Portman with epilepsy, maybe there could be a depressed woman whom Zach Braff runs over with his car.
The thing is, I would want the soundtrack to remain essentially the same.
I really hope "The High Cost of Living" has the tag line: "For the child inside of each of us ... who wonders what Zach Braff would look like with a beard."
