Library Loot

On the way to the library last week, I was talking to my sister on the phone. She warned me to go easy on the loot since Sundance started the next day. I brushed her advice off and got six movies.

I should have listened to her.

I didn’t get to all of the loot, just a bit more than half.

I knew that Downloading Nancy wasn’t going to be any good.  Friends that I trust when it comes to movies warned me about it.  The New York Times was quite vicious.  But the premise of the film was morbidly fascinating for me, and I love Maria Bello.  Everyone was right, it sucked.  The day after, I could barely remember how it ended.

Freaks, on the other hand, was fantastic.  Not all of it was perfect, but that last ten minutes was horrifying.  And since then I’ve been singing, ‘we accept her, we accept her. One of us.  One of us.’  Seriously, this is a messed up movie.  I really wish the stuff they cut out in the 30s wasn’t lost.

I liked Strangers on a Train quite a bit.  It’s no Rear Window, but it had an interesting plot and was tense enough.  Nothing life changing, but it continued to nudge me towards becoming a Hitchcock fan, so I suppose it served its purpose.

I didn’t get to the rest, and since I didn’t even go to the library today, all I’ve got is what Netflix sent me.  Here’s what I’ll be working on this week.
