#002; weather in limbo and a beautiful flick
Photo from the Bostonist.
Second – saw ‘Two Lovers‘ this weekend (also saw ‘Watchmen’ for a second time, but that’s a story for another day). Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful movie about falling in love with all the wrong people – married, addicted, bipolar, perfect – with a distinctly German-cinema feel to it (German and Chinese being my favorites for the same reasons; they’re so quiet, it’s breathtaking). The entire cast was wonderful (which surprised me considering my historic dislike of Gwenyth Paltrow) and it made me mourn for Joaquin Phoenix’s acting career – why did he have to turn so deeply insane?
Otherwise, this weekend saw lots of sleep on my behalf (am currently losing a battle with bronchitis) and the St. Paddy’s Day parade hit South Boston. I wish more than anything that I could have been there. Floating around in Purgatory is only a nice vacation if you can ignore what you’re missing, after all.
