Director Barry Jenkins drunkenly live-tweeted ‘Notting Hill’ on a flight

Oscars 2017 Arrivals

I’ve had the urge to tweet through old movies at times. Last year, I went on some kind of John Cusack bender and couldn’t stop tweeting about Grosse Pointe Blank and High Fidelity (the movies kept coming on, night after night, on some subscription channel) and I was trying to figure out which one was my favorite off-beat Cusack-rom-com performance. Director Barry Jenkins had a similar experience, but on a plane, watching Notting Hill without sound. It seems like his seatmate was watching Notting Hill, and so Barry decided to live-tweet the experience. Hugh Grant became “English Cat” and Julia Roberts was just Julia Roberts, but as it turns out, he’s a massive fan of both actors. He basically got drunk and live-tweeted the whole thing, without even hearing any of the dialogue.

He keeps going on and on like that on his flight back to LA. It was charming and he got thousands of likes and retweets. He should do that more often. I would watch that as a show – like, Drunk History, only they could do Drunk Barry Jenkins Does Commentary On Romantic Comedies. Or… Drunk Commentary with Barry Jenkins. Something like that. (Also: Notting Hill is one of those movies I always end up watching for a solid 20 minutes whenever it’s on. It’s no Grosse Pointe Blank, but it’s good.)
