Back from, and in some ways still in the midst of, a whirlwind tour of the region's big screens. Seen on 35mm this month: Fargo, Blue Velvet, Pink Flamingos, My Own Private Idaho, Badlands, and Days of Heaven. Still to come: King Kong and Full Metal Jacket. Expect multiple articles on the experience (any preferences?). To say things have been busy would be an understatement; the past few weeks have brought a graduation (diploma's in the mail), a violent car crash for my parents (who emerged unscathed, thankfully), and the rediscovery of true romance founded on celluloid and dreams. Also, a honkin' tv set. Here's to irresponsibility and adventure. Here's to the future.
