This is the one film on the schedule that I'm not really looking forward to. In some respects, this whole weekend is an excuse to force myself to sit down and watch this movie. It's one of those basic "classics" that I feel I should watch at least once to say that I've seen it, blah blah blah... but I'm really not that interested in it. So now that my gullet is wet down with Code 46, time to swallow the pill. Gotta do it or I'll never get to the next course, which is a real treat! Here I go...
whew. well at least that's over. Some of the visual stuff going on, particularly in the beginning, is interesting when you think about what all it took to do that in the camera back in those days but mostly... it was sloooow. I must admit to entertaining myself by adding my own dialogue to what was on screen but even with that, by the end I was just saying "the end" over and over for like the last fifteen minutes. Great, though. Now I've seen this and know what it is and never have to watch it again. Moving on.
