Messing with my head

I wanted to title this "Mind Fuck," but I thought I should try to keep the titles PG-13 at least. I watched In the Company of Men yesterday; I'd been putting it off as one of those things I knew I should do, but that I really didn't want to. What struck me wasn't misogyny, it was misanthropy. (Although I did really enjoy the quote that went something like this: Women are all the same -- "nothing inside but meat, gristle, and hatred." You betcha.) Aaron Eckhart's character is just a mean bastard; he hates women no more than he hates everyone else. I'm glad I finally saw where Neil LaBute started, and I'm glad I found someone who is actually meaner than I am. Okay, so he's fictional, but I'll take what I can get.

And once I was done with that exquisite piece of mind-scrunching, I watched the two-hour season finale of Alias. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, but what the hell was that ending? I felt like Kathy Bates in Misery! You can't do that! That's not right!
