We're into woody Allen now. We've seen hannah and her sisters, husbands and wives, and crimes and misdemeanors. I loved the last two.

Falling in love with Hypatica
I'm in love. I'm in love with Hypatica, forever and hopelessly in love.
And how could I possibly resist Hypatica the philosopher and librarian of the Library of Alexandria.
When the Christians burnt the Library of Alexandria and killed Hypatica, dragging her mutilated body through the streets of Alexandria, we lost an immensurable store of knowledge, even that the Earth goes round the Sun, as well as one of the great and wonderful women of philosophy.
The Christians plunged us back into the dark and we had to wait for the Enlightenment, one thousand seven hundred years later. I am surprised the Christians dare show their faces.
So go and see the movie, "Agora". Fall in love with Hypatica and mourn the loss of the Library of Alexandria and the loss of our adorable Hypatia.

Catharsis and the Dying Swan
The movie, "The Black Swan", is the story of a girl becoming a women. However it is told from the emotional point of view. So what we see on the screen is not meant to be taken literally but to be taken emotionally.
I was surprised how many took the details of the story literally. And they missed that this is a coming of age story that is common to all of us. We all experience the sturm und drang of growing up, of leaving our parents and finding romantic love and success or failure in work.
Yes, "The Black Swan", expressed perfectly the emotions associated with coming of age. In fact the movie was so good emotionally I would call it cathartic.

It is also a film about perfectionism and, if you will, about method acting.

It appears to be the opposite of Fight Club. Or a Fight Club for girls...

Saturday: Inception. Sunday: Bitter Moon. Fun weekend. Lots of bats#it crazy women.
Inception was pretty awesome, but I don't know if I felt emotionally involved enough. Maybe I just kind of dislike movies with criminals as protagonists. However, I'm officially in love with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's waistcoat.
BM is one of those films that becomes even creepier once you hear about Roman Polanski's... tribulations. It also involves Peter Coyote getting turned on by a woman peeing on his face. As an exploration of a severely unhealthy relationship, pretty damn awesome. As an exploration of Polanki's mind, eeeewwwww!
Yeah, I guess I'm kind of a prude...
