“you're nothing but a product. and what's this product called? emptiness, dude, that's what it's called. and for the rest of your life, they sell you over and over, right to the end when they package you one last time and plant you in the ground.”
Life is fun; life is more enjoyable when you’re drinking or when you’re drunk according to Sutter. Drinking for Sutter is a hobby, it opens the world up for him, he sees things in a whole new light, he discovers new possibilities, Sutter is an alcoholic but he doesn’t see it that way. We all know a Sutter, he fun and he’s full of stories, his life is exciting and he’s easy to talk to. The character of Sutter was so enjoyable and entertaining and yet so heartbreaking. I loved him for his upbeat nature, his outgoing personality and his energy. His energy could fill a room. The incident at his sister’s house with the expensive brandy and the closet fire, I thought this might be a turning point for Sutter but it just added another story to his collection. A boy does Sutter have the stories. It takes a lot to change someone who is flying higher than a kite. When Aimee finds him passed out a lawn while delivering morning papers, she’s just trying to help him out. Returning the favor, Sutter takes Aimee under his wing hoping to find a guy to bring her out of her shell. His latest matchmaking effort, his best friend Ricky was a success, only he’s lost his drinking buddy now. You’d think losing your drinking buddy would slow Sutter down but it doesn’t. Aimee’s always been a good girl and when the Sutter and Aimee start to hang out, Aimee starts to change. The warning signs aren’t good and I cling to the notion that things will turn around and she just might be the key that Sutter needs. As Sutter hunts down some male prospects for Aimee, Sutter finds in Aimee things he was missing, things his previous girlfriends never provided but is it the things he is really looking for. Sutter is hard, he is living the dream (or at least his own dream) and he is the only one who can decide what he really needs.
