Episode 128: Todo Sobre Mi Madre
I'm enjoying the Krispy Kremes I bought today after our usual post-seminar session at Kami Lounge. They're a little addictive, I must admit. Just ate four at one go! I'm feeling slightly better than I did yesterday. Well enough to sit in The Graduate@Cholo and have two drinks anyway, with Alex and Dan. Before that, Dan and I were at the Alternative Film Society screening of Todo Sobre Mi Madre (All About My Mother). It's only my second time going, although I would like to be more regular in my attendance. Didn't go in expecting much, but the film was moving in its own way. I was quite taken aback when Esteban died, but from then on, the film was excellent, treading the right balance between humour and pathos. If anything, it's made me want to see A Streetcar Named Desire. Thinking back, however, I realise that the film could probably have been fleshed out further, especially since a lot of the action is sort of elided by the passage of time. I would like to do a bit of reading before going to bed, but I think I'd be better off heading straight to bed after this episode of Torchwood finishes. Am getting rather perplexed about where my books are exactly, as they've been delivered successfully, but I have yet to receive any notification to pick them up. If there's still nothing tomorrow, I'm going to e-mail and get it tracked down. Sigh...
