Oops. I’ve been keeping track, but it’s hard to remember to post when I’m not seeing things in the theater. I’m hoping to hit The Prestige this weekend at the very least, so let’s clear out this text file, shall we?
* Muriel’s Wedding I hadn’t seen in -ages-. It’s awesome. We all know this.
* Shakespeare Behind Bars is a fabulous documentary on inmates in a Kentucky prison who have an acting troupe. The film covers their production of The Tempest. Just fabulous.
* Swing Kids, oh man. I need to hunt down the soundtrack. I know it’s hiding in my apartment -somewhere-. It’s not actually a -good- film, but it has pretty boys dancing, and sometimes, that’s all you need.
* I might be the only person I know who -loves- Sideways. I am okay with that.
Oh, yeah! I had a Nicole Holofcener marathon. Walking and Talking is the movie that introduced me to Catherine Keener, so well done. Also, remember when Anne Heche wasn’t crazy? This is such a lovely little film. She followed it up with Lovely & Amazing, which was brilliant and moving. But then? Friends With Money, where actresses I really like were quite wonderful at playing characters I didn’t actually care about. Disappointing.

Oh man, yeah, Robert Sean Leonard is SO pretty in Swing Kids. Swoon.
Ooh, have put the Shakespeare prison thing on the Zip list. Thanks for the recommendation!
I was like “ohhhh this is a flawed movie but I do not care because PRETTY! OMG!”
It’s really good. I had meant to see it when it was in theaters but … too many movies, too little time.
ha, totally! i need to rewatch it soon!
