My mum died last year on this date. I have had that feeling all day that the person to whom I was married referred to as "clouds in the stomach."
I just saw "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," which is very good -- a short documentary made by Irish filmmakers who were in Venezuela at the moment of the 2002 coup, and "got" the whole thing.
21 Grams is on Feb 14-18 -- it's on with "Girlhood," about incarcerated teens.
Feb 21-26 there's a showing of "House of Sand and Fog" that I'm mentioning but which I definitely DON'T want to see. However, I'm sure Ben Kingsley is wonderful -- but the book was more than enough for me. I don't need an outside reminder that things can quickly spin out of control. [On with "The Son," a French film that I know nothing much about.]
There's a Spanish-language film Feb 29-March 4 -- "War Takes," from Colombia, 2002. It's on with a Robert Altman film called "The Company," about ballet.
Looper wants to see 21 Grams -- I thought Tiff would want to see it as she liked "Amores Perros," but of course, this one isn't in Spanish.
