A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.

* Carlos, the epic biography of Carlos the Jackal from Olivier Assayas. Playing this weekend in Portland at the NW Film Center.

* Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, the beginning of the end, and HP ain't goin' out like that!

Also, don't forget 127 Hours goes wider this week.


* Altitude, comics artist Kaare Andrews' debut movie is like Cthulu in the clouds. A confined-space horror movie with lots of tension.

* Frank Sinatra: Concert Collection, 14 hours of vintage television specials from the Chairman of the Board.

* Leonard Cohen's Lonesome Heroes, an academic documentary mapping out the troubadour's influences.

* Mad About You: The Complete Fifth Season, the year of the Buchman pregnancy. Another cycle of shows from one of my favorite sitcoms.

* The Other Side of Paradise, an impressive indie romance that takes its heart out on the road.

* Sherlock: Season One, the clever and inventive BBC modernization of the legendary detective.

Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)?
, an interesting documentary about the unique singer that has a lot of good stuff, but maybe not enough to answer it's own titular question.

Current Soundtrack: Rihanna, Loud

Hufflepugg? You're a Slytherin, dude.

Alison Hallett said...

What a revealing typo.

Jamie S. Rich said...

That's not what you jerks said at the movie. You were all sharing your inside joke, "Hee hee, Jamie will be Hufflepuff. He doesn't know what that means!"

Well, you'll alllll be sorry when my Pug Army rises up and snorts your to death!

Alison Hallett said...

No, definitely a Slytherin. I'm pretty sure there's a horcrux where your heart should be.

Jamie S. Rich said...

Well, I've been known to accuse people of being "horcruxes." Or, at least, half of that word.

By the way, which one of us here has a crush on Draco Malfoy? So much is being revealed under the surface here...
