>Weekend at the Movies
>Syriana was good overall, but don’t go there when you’re the least bit drowsy. It’s very complicated with a large number of characters and multiple plot lines and there are subtitles. Not such a good sign: a few people walked out and one guy to my left fell asleep. I’m glad I saw it in the theater, otherwise I never in a million years would have sat through the video. I really wanted to see Brokeback Mountain but, surprisingly, it is only playing in three theaters in the City. Hmmmmm…weird.
My essay still hasn’t run in Fresh Yarn. I was 90% sure it would be in this installment since it’s about family and this is the holidays. In checking the site, I noticed a piece by Jackie Cohen. She’s a terrific chick who used to work with Christian on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. Yay for Jackie.
