Whew!  As I suspected, A Single Man did the trick.  Washed that Eli crap right outta’ my brain.

WHAT a good movie!  Yes, maybe a little bit too meticulously art-directed, but if you love the look of retro things (the film is set in 1962) you will bask in it.  And the performances…wow.  If you (as I did) mainly know Colin Firth from Sense & Sensibility, Love Actually, and all of that other British period/rom-com/drippy schmaltz, then you NEED to see him in A Single Man.  I was blown away.   His performance was both completely restrained yet utterly devastatingly emotionally.

I’m telling you right now, no matter what happens in March, Colin Firth owns the Best Actor Oscar this year.

    Legion is a cheap theater see. Don’t pay more than $5 to see it. No enough archangels. Gabriel is played like a cheap-knock-off version of Christopher Walken from the Prophecy on too much steriods. Paul Bethany’s not bad. But maybe a NetFlix rental.

    What’s a theater? I havent’ been to the movies in a long time. I’d say I need to get out more, but I seem to be never home.

    I guess fussy directing is to be expected when your director is a fashion designer. Colin *bestillmybeatingheart* Firth was on NPR a week or two ago talking about his role and he felt that his character’s fastidious nature was showcased particularly well by Tom Ford’s direction.
