OY! It's been a while...

OHkay... it has been two years since the last post. Embarrassing.

Here's the li'l indy that brought me back.
The Confirmation
Irrelevant really... but still it beckoned me.

I wanna start talkin' about movies again but I have some goofy guidelines:

1.)  I hate spoilers so I avoid trailers.
2.) I barely tolerate: biopics, junkie movies, infidelity flix or cartoons masquerading as live action. For example computer graphic (CG) enhanced or embellished - movies that employ cartoon amonts of CG yet still call themselves 'live action'.
3.) I dig foreign movies but I have to be in the mood to give my undivided attention

And I am gonna wanna talk about a really cool music pilgrimage I am about to embark on:

  • Fly to Shreveport. 
  • Drive to Lafayette - stay for 8 days
  • Train to New Orleans -stay for 10 days
  • Train to Memphis stay for 4 days
  • Train to Chicago stay for 3 days 
  • Fly home.
Details to follow

Stealing Beauty

I am in love with this movie. Great representation of growing up in a sub culture. Such a lovely surprise. Incredible direction, irreverent acting, supple script and cinematography. Nice movie!

Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Stunning, captivating, dusty and difficult. It glitters like a river in the dark. Big, deep and intricately intimate.

See it as soon as you can

Trailer. But you should just see it first.

Willem Dafoe
Sam Shepard
Forest Whitaker
