i’m baaaack, at least for now.

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?

who wants to be a millionaire?

Last night I met up with my friends for drinks and a movie. We were planning to see Four Christmases because, you know, it IS Christmastime. But we got to the theater later than we wanted to and decided to just see the movie that was starting soonest, Slumdog Millionaire. I had only vaguely heard of it, but all of the theater employees were all, “Um, it’s amazing.” And um, it WAS amazing. Here’s a trailer:

Everyone go see it right now.
