I have some really great friends, but lately I’ve been driving them to distraction talking about my passions. Which they don’t always share. So I’ve started blogging. It seems like a good way to make new friends and reach out to old ones.
I love movies. All kinds of movies. Silent cinema, independent film, British films, popular Hindi cinema, big budget blockbusters, foreign language films–I love them all. Lately, the films that have touched me, that ones that I like the best, are the ones that have “heart.” That’s really vague, I know. It’s hard to describe but hopefully easy to understand. It’s not the quite same as “feel-good,” because some of the films I love have sad endings.
Films that I’ve watched recently that I love:
- Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont
- In The Loop
- In a Day
- The Best of Youth
- (500) Days of Summer
I am currently obsessed with two British actors, Michael Sheen and Matthew Goode. I think Michael Sheen is a brilliant actor. Matthew Goode is simply hot. There will be a lot more about these two and their work, coming soon.
