I haven’t posted in a few years, but tonight was a night of film for me, and I have some things to say:
1. Everyone — and I mean everyone — should find a way to see Mario’s Story. It is one of the most amazing documentaries I have ever seen, and Mario Rocha is indescribably inspiring. I had the great fortune of meeting him tonight and hearing him speak, and I have rarely been so impressed or touched by an individual’s story. Lest you think you’ve had it rough, think of Mario. Here’s the trailer for the documentary:
2. Kate Winslet and Sean Penn…both of you are FUCKING AMAZING.
3. I have been sobbing since around the time that Heath Ledger’s family accepted his award. That was like an hour ago. I think I believe in hormones now.
4. The children of Slumdog could win Oscars for sheer adorableness. New category, Academy?
