SHAYLA WORKED IN A FACTORY, SHE WASN'T HISTORY

Don't forget, tomorrow Joëlle Jones and I will be at the Portland Comic Book Show. Hit the website for details.



THIS WEEK AT THE THEATRE...

* An Unreasonable Man, an eye-opening documentary about the career of Ralph Nader.

* Factory Girl, a dull biopic about Edie Sedgwick notable for how good Guy Pearce is as Andy Warhol and how bad Hayden Christensen is as Bob Dylan.

I am steeling myself for scads of mail from people with e-mail addresses like "haydenlover16" that will tell me just how stupid I am via very poor grammar and syntax.


THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...

* Akihabara Geeks, a documentary about obsessive types in Japan's "Electric Town"

* The Arrangement, wherein Elia Kazan gives Kirk Douglas a mid-life crisis, but not before letting him date the 1969-edition of Faye Dunaway (Hello!)

* Bicycle Thieves - Criterion Collection, Vittorio De Sica's Neorealist classic is given a spiffy upgrade by the DVD company I'd most like to marry

* Confetti, an adorable British comedy with Jessica Stevenson and Martin Freeman



Current Soundtrack: Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited

Current Mood: je t'aime

e-mail = golightly at confessions123.com * The Website * Live Journal Syndication * My Corporate-Owned Space * ComicSpace * The Blog Roll * DVDTalk reviews * My Books On Amazon
