This week's probably my last week to get a couple of these in, seeing that I'm going home to Oklahoma on the 22nd and the closest indie theater is oh, probably 3 hours away. Then I'll be traveling til Jan 11 so I'd better squeeze what I can into this week!
This week I saw:
Australia - expected to hate it, based on reviews, and while it's long and disjointed, there were certain elements that I really loved. And I could've sobbed through the last half hour. But I was with a new group of people, most of whom I'd never met, so I held it in.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - I can't stop watching Holocaust films. This was one of the most intense endings and it's awful, awful stuff. But I think it's important for humanity that these films are still made.
Yesterday - granted it came out a few years ago, but it's the first Zulu-language film to be internationally distributed. About a woman in South Africa dealing with AIDS in her family. I liked it.
I need to see:
I've Loved You So Long
A Christmas Tale
So it seems Slumdog Millionaire isn't even playing at all in the entire state of Oklahoma, according to the Fandango search I just did. Seriously. Why does this not surprise me?
