Spanking the monkey and blowing the dog

Every film buff loves making their own double features. There is just something about choosing two films to watch back to back that share a theme,actor,director, etc.. It's just something that makes the nerd inside smile. It's also great when the films compliment eachother and make eachother better.

:Last night I decided to do a double feature. The theme was "controversail indies that deal with a certain taboo" The films were going to be Spanking the Monkey and Sleeping Dogs Lie. The first deal with incest and the other with a girl who blows her dog. They were both also widely liked by most people who gave them a chance.

I decided to give them both a chance and see what all the fuss was about. It turned out to be an intteresting double feature and seemed to prove what can become of an indie. Some turn out original and great meanwhile others become a parody of themselves.
