Lean Tuesday

While we’re all sitting around waiting for the big event (Can you guess what day tomorrow is, boys and girls?), let’s talk about movies.  I’ve only seen two of the Academy Award nominees–Letters From Iwo Jima, which is almost great and has some haunting, low-key music by Clint Eastwood’s son, Kyle and the alleged comedy Little Miss Sunshine, which is the single most depressing movie I have ever seen and that includes To Live, The Ballad of Narayama and the one about the Guatamalan kids crawling through the sewer across the Mexican border and being bitten by rats and one of them dies. 

For some reason, Barbaro’s death touched me deeply.  I wrote something about it here.

It’s Philip Glass’s 70th birthday. (And Johnny Rotten’s 51st.)

For a perfect meshing of Glass and Schubert listen Glass’s “Les Enfants Terribles”.

Babel and The Good Shepherd were easily the best two films I saw in the theaters all year. The Queen is deft and well-done, but not the work of art these two are. It’s a travesty GS is only nominated for Art Direction. What happened????

Little Miss Sunshine was high-larious. You, sir must not have ever driven a certified rust bucket van.

I bid you good day, sir. I said GOOD DAY!
