I feel like I hardly have time to watch movies but lately I've seen several that were great. I also caught a trailer for a Harmony Korine movie that I'd really like to see called Mister Lonely. His other movies, Gummo and Julien Donkey-Boy seem a little too hard to take so I have not watched them yet. Mr Lonely seems different, very charming. I posted the trailer here if you're interested in checking it out. And if you've seen Gummo or Julien Donkey Boy and you think I really need to see them leave me a comment and tell me why.
I watched Savage Grace with my good friend Joanna Friday night. I think we were not over all that into the movie but we both agreed it was very beautiful. It is a true story based on the Baekland family. I never knew anything about them but their story is very bizarre and crazy. I don't know if I can really recommend the movie but if you're into true crime stories and vintage glamour it may be the movie for you. Read about the Baekeland story here. Below is a photo of the original Barbara Baekeland and Julianne Moore as Barbara,
The next post I'll tell you all about Joanna's amazing art show!
