Have I mentioned that I'm developing an unhealthy (for my bank account) of going to see lots of movies?

When the last minute morning table making and the afternoon meeting was over, I hung out at the office for a few minutes and listened to the new Air CD while I walked up to the Harvard Exit to see The Dreamers. I don't really know much about movie making, but I get the sense that Bertolucci knows what he's doing with a camera. He does some nice things with mirrors, movement, shadows ,(and interspersed film references).

The story had House of Yes elements and some possibly unnecessary squicky stuff, but I thought it was good. Perhaps it is easier to accept because the film is populated by beautiful actors with great clothes. I've liked so many movies lately, maybe I'm just an easy sell? At the same time, I'm glad that I saw it by myself so that I didn't need to worry about other people's reactions.

I worked on my poster for a little bit at Victrola and tried to replenish my convergently empty personal care arsenal at Walgreens, but they were out of everything I wanted. Choosing new products is just too much mental effort; so I'll just go somewhere else tomorrow.
