I had to come to Metro Walk a few days ago to meet a friend.
She pointed me to some of ’em candy stores, out of which I got:
1) Do The Right Thing (the Spike Lee classic – gangsters and mafiosos galore! at last! at last! thank you Lord!)
2) The Usual Suspects (anybody still remembers that line? “Who’s Keyser Soze?” did I spell that right? oh, and that killer line: “The biggest trick that the devil ever pulled…”, I can’t exactly remember the rest…)
3) Amelie (again! which I instantly gave to my friend, because the good word of our salvation must be spread!)
4) Bright Star (don’t really know if it’s good — but it’s John Keats’ life story, by Jane Campion, so it should be)
5) Dogma (this is the third time that I got a copy of this, on account of my two previous copies from Q only having Chinese and French audio; I got to test it in my friend’s player this time, and it’s finally gooooooood)
6) My Sassy Girl (in its much maligned Hollywood version, which I actually like – I need my dose of stuff like this every once in a while so excuse my mushy ass)
There was no way of bargaining in the damn place. Damn.
Oh well, all those treats should keep me wide awake for the next few nights.
Dogma, where God is a girl doing headstands on the lawn. Nice!
Aw, sh*t, I should’ve asked if they got My Blueberry Nights! The copy a kid made for me wouldn’t play. Oh, well.
So how do we end this?
Relax? See a movie?
