So clearly I should’ve posted my blog address in my g-chat status much earlier.
Hi new readers!
I am sitting in Urgent Neurology Clinic without any urgent appointments this morning, and figured I could write a little bit.
For starters, I have seen some really good movies in the last couple of weeks. so let’s go:
The Dark Knight was everything I wanted it to be. I don’t want to spoil it for those who have not seen it. But it really resonates with the most basic fears we have as humans in a world of uncertainty and evil. not to mention, the choice we all have when faced with wallowing in despair and pain or moving forward.
Beasts of the Southern Wild is going to be all over the Oscars…I can feel it! Please go and see this! And bring some kleenex. It is a very poignant story of growing up and the love a father for his daughter and her faith that her father is invincible. (As a daughter with the best father on the planet, this resonates with me).
The Artist, I thoroughly enjoyed! Times change and we must be able to evolve. I think that about sums it up. I am impressed though with how much can be conveyed with no spoken dialogue.
And lastly, I tell you, That little boy in Moonrise Kingdom is precious. I love the whimsical Americana that Wes Anderson does so well. I felt it was executed beautifully–without being contrived–which is an easy misstep for his films (ahem, Darjeeling Limited).
In other news, I am headed to NYC for a 24 hour whirlwind interview (the final one!). Wish me luck.
