Tuesday night [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn and I went to the Rialto to see The Last Mistress, a film that answers the question What would Dangerous Liasons look like if directed by Peter Greenaway? weakness and vanity )

Ehhh. This film doesn't just trowel on the sarcasm and political symbolism, it uses a combat bulldozer with backhoe assembly.
a funny thing happened on the way to the berkeley.... )

Thursday night after going to the ISSA meeting (nice talk on securing a virtualized environment) I went to Mission Valley and see The Incredible Hulk. Nice to see *another* comics adaptation that does not suck (we will not speak of _Ghost Rider_). HULK SMASH! )

You don't really own anything you can't carry on your back at a dead run - Daniel Keys Moran

Saw Mongol tonight, in which Genghis Khan grows as a child, through slavery, and...well it's like _Titanic_ or any other film version of a major historical event or person: you know how it ends. Summary: _Braveheart_, or maybe _Conan_ with lots of horses and Tuvan khoomei throat-singing. Local: through Thursday at Rialto, next week at Colony. I'm happily willing to see this again.*lots* of horses )

Monday night I went to the Colony with [livejournal.com profile] andyhat to see Roman de Gare. This film has enough twists and contrivances that I find it difficult to discuss it without giving away major plot points - in my opinion sometimes "it's the journey, not the destination" when applied to narratives is not completely true. So this film involves a murder, a serial killer who uses magic tricks, the craft and profession of writing, and boats. Along the way there is a slaughtered pig, a loudly faked orgasm, a farce, class collision, and wine. Hard to talk of this film without spoilers, meaning there are twists. Very meta story within a story kind of stuff, much clever fun.

Probably back to the Colony tonight for the 9:15 show of the French spy farce _OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies!_ if nothing else arises. Ping if interested.
