despite my views, recently proclaimed, about movies at the cinema we've continued to go, even without gift vouchers. 'lincoln' would not be a movie of my choice, in general i truly dislike movies with basically all male cast, boring and/or violent. like the loathsome patriarchy itself.
but even if 'lincoln' ticked those patriarchy boxes and then some it was well-played, well-written and with some very moving moments and dialogue. history in the making. heartbreaking that humankind hasn't come further than this in 150 plus years. we are indeed a pitiful race, a plague on earth as david attenborough said recently.
that said, i'm very much looking forward to seeing 'cloud atlas', from the trailer it looks like an amazing movie. i firmly believe that everything is indeed connected. how we live, how we treat others, our choices. everything.
next week though, it's time for a lovely british comedy; 'quartet', sounds similar to 'best exotic marigold hotel', i'm sure it will be well enjoyed.
ps today is semicolon day, my favourite punctuation mark! i hope you've treated the semicolons in your life to something special! ds
