I have a good idea. Let's take tens of thousands of
testosterone-addled young men, tens of thousands of half-naked young
women, pack them into a confined area, then turn the heat up to 110
- 115 degrees and see what happens. And what the heck, let's toss
in some alcohol to keep it interesting. Think the CIA drug experiment
in the movie "Jacob's Ladder" but with mega-tits and boy

"Mental" is wonderfully directed and edited, as are all of
Jesse's films. Beautiful cinematography. We can't put it online
until after the judging. See it here in a few weeks.
In the meantime, enjoy our

films in this international competition.
My son James says that the sad

negotiated in secret for years now. A lot of people are going to be
affected by this, but for some reason the public is not allowed to
see what's in it. In fact many of the lawmakers which are about
to vote on this deal haven't even read it themselves. Those who
have, are forbidden to expose what it contains. Here's
