Or afternoon, or what have you. Yesterday was my Proper Post so don't expect too much ok? Actually most of you seem to have missed it, which is a shame. You know what, I am going to rip off my own idea and post something I wrote yesterday but didn't want to put up with my Serious Post:
On an unrelated sidenote, I am currently completely mesmerised by Secretary, the movie with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader. Now I have always had something of a soft spot for James, but no, I don't like this film for the obvious reasons (if any of you have seen it you will know what I mean). It is certainly the most thoughtprovoking, bizarre, silly, disturbing, funny, subtle movies I have seen in quite a while. Shame it took me so long to discover it. It is so politically incorrect that really it isn't. I think it is one of those movies you either sympathise with or not. Sod it, I'm sorry, I can't explain. Just rent it, ok? And don't go reading up on it too much beforehand - it is one of those films that benefits from a lack of expectations.
Did any of you see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind? Or Sex, Lies and Videotape? Its effect on me lies somewhere in between those to. Incidentally, if you haven't, you really need to see those too. But see Secretary first.
Also I am deeply disappointed that the lyrics of the lovely Lizzie West song played at the end, Chariots Rise, seem to run "what a fool am I/to fall so in love" when I thought, and can't see how I misheard, "what grace have I/to fall so in love".
Which is infinitely better.
