“Spun” is a twitchy little indie film all about methamphetamine.
Me? I’m a geek, so I rented it solely for the cowboy boots.
My pal Pascal told me, long ago, he had built a pair of cowboy boots for the Hollywood celebrity and fashion warrior, Mickey Rourke. Yep. You know you’re living right when you can walk on to a movie set in your every-day boots and play a crazy crank cook. I’m left feeling uncomfortably ordinary.
Here they are… white cowboy boots with flames and stitching and bling-y mule ears. Boy howdy. If you want a pair just like them (but not)…go talk to Pascal.
If you don’t know the storyline… four years after surviving a bullet in the head, the Bride (Uma Thurman) emerges from a coma and swears revenge on her former boss and his deadly squad of international assassins. In one of her many misadventures, the Bride is buried alive…in a graveyard, in a lonely dark pine box, under six feet of dirt.
Lucky for her, she was buried with her boots on…and I’ve gotten quite a bit of e-mail from women wanting a pair just like ’em. So help me out here…use the comments section below. What can we tell from this valuable copyright-infringing clip?
Eagle inlaid on a two-piece top, right?
Star inlay at the collar.
Two rows of stitching on the eagle-wing inlay …or just one?
Who’s the maker do ya think? (I couldn’t see a label inside the boot. Can you?)
