Film Friday

Feeling a good deal better today, and had a quietly storming day's work on the business book -- feel a real enthusiasm for it again, which is great.  I always think that sitting at a desk doesn't make for very good blog fodder. Writing about postmodern irony in advertising. It is only when I sit down to write do I discover that I have opinions about such things and then learn what they are.

Otherwise little to report until Lorraine went out in the evening to see The Place Beyond the Pines for which the IMDb description hadn't sounded too promising. "A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective." The reality was excellent with classy and fresh direction, genuinely exciting action sequences, and shift about in your seat tension. Well worth seeing, and L and I both liked it.

Home and Betty was in town, and we three chatted cheerfully till well past midnight.
