Saw Amour. While it is masterful, I hope this swerve towards hyper-realism isn't Haneke's new thing. Don't get me wrong, I love slow realism (I once enjoyed a three 1/2 hour movie of a middle-aged Belgian woman puttering around her apartment.), but I look to Haneke for a mindfuck. Cache and The Piano Teacher are still two of my favorites, and I will even forgive him for the remake of Funny Games (I like the original). Anyway, it is the most intriguing thing out by far so go check it out before it's gone. It was an intense experience to be crying and hearing people weeping along with me in the theater. Aren't movies amazing?
Speaking of gone, what the heck is going on with the Crest? I am having a hard time figuring it out. I know theaters 2 and 3 are not going to be showing new movies but what's going on with theater 1? This is the worst news!
Finally there was a good show in Sac! Fine Steps were really fun. Matt R. is a great addition on bass and I could watch Kyle play the guitar forever. I would love to have him jamming inside my house all the time. Like, come downstairs for coffee, and there's Kyle playing guitar.
Yes, I'm posting on Sunday because I still don't know how this is gonna work with my new job as a professional Chop Buster in a lab coat with a clip board. Starts tomorrow.
