postcards from the edge
i just pulled that post title outta my butt in reference to how crazayzay it is up in heah, BUT -- i do love that movie. best line: "i do it for the endolphin rush."
i had an absolutely horrendous professional experience yesterday which i will not get into the deets of, but suffice it to say that the curse word that dare not speak its name has run through my head a few times in re: to.
balancing out the horror of that, and finding myself in santa monica, of all places, i cut out early and snuck off to the mall with a friend to eat 'hot dog on a stick' and see 'the savages,' which i loved. phillip seymour hoffman is cute, and i don't care if you point and laugh at me for saying it. the movie really snuck up on me, and it had some interesting things to say about family and infirmity, and without any hollywood schlock thrown in. in fact, you may be wishing from some hollywood schlock in there from time to time -- that's how unflinching it is. so yeah, thumb up. and same goes for 'no country for old men,' one of the best movies i've seen this year.
