Day For Night. François Truffaut. 1973. ★★★★☆☆
It’s amusing, but it seems self-mythologising. 8½ avoided this problem by being more obviously a fantasy. And Day For Night is too long.
The interwebs have been all abuzz with a funky new Ikea lamp (IKEA PS 2014, designed by D Wahl). But I bought one anyway.
I love Lego, so putting this lamp together was fun. It’s over 50 parts.
It made of plastic, so it feels very cheap.
It expands/contracts in a very plastic-ey way. Doesn’t feel very Space Age Material-ey.
But it does look quite nice, I think. Although gimmickey. And it’s Ikea, so everybody in Norway has it by now, too.
When it’s closed, the plastic bits clicks against each other in the wind.
So, basically, it’s cheap, and it feels cheap. But I like the way it looks.
Bicycle Thieves. Vittorio De Sica. 1948. ★★★★★★
I started crying before the movie even started.
Rusty Fogg Cocktail: 😃
Limelight. Billy Corben. 2011. ★★★★☆☆
Mexican Mule: 😒
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Francis Lawrence. 2013. ★★★☆☆☆
The first movie had some rough, but charming edges. The Hunger Games Colon Catching Fire, however, has been polished and is more of a normal Hollywood big budget movie. I found it to be a snooze fest.
The Legend of Jack Sparrow: 😃
Breathless. Jean-Luc Godard. 1960. ★★★★★☆
Schuylkill Punch: 😃
You Again. Andy Fickman. 2010. ★★★☆☆☆
Strawberry Prosecco Float: 😒
