Every since I posted the infamous Al Pacino-Shannon Elizabeth seperation question, I've found myself with a state of "Connector's Block." Normally, this one gives me trouble but I seem to get through it in about 5 or 10 minutes. Last night, however, after 20 minutes of pondering I was left with nothing more than an incomplete Jim Carrey-Eugene Levy link.
I had a feeling that Catherine Keener was the key to the link, but I still didn't have all the steps. Tonight, my heachache came to a brilliant end. I started thinking about every movie I had ever seen with Keener, and all of a sudden it hit me.
ROUNDERS!!!!! That was the bridge!!!!!!!
I had already gone over Being John Malkovich in my head, but hadn't thought of Malkovich himself. Instead, I had to wait until I thought of Adaptation, where she has a cameo. She was on the set of BJM!!!!!! I ended up dumping Keener in favor of Scarecrow, the movie on Moviepix that I kept seeing ads for but never wanted to watch.
Then it was a flash!! An instant in time where the animated timeline in my head was electrified as I saw Shannon Elizabeth's face flash, and the linking begin. When I finish the link I like to put it all in perspective in a cheesy, CBS highlight reel.
The link I eventually made was:
(Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back)
(Empire of the Sun)
(The Royal Tenenbaums)
