Day 63: Swimming in Culture

We don't do normal cinema anymore. It is too noisy. Wrappers, talkers, phone-users. People have forgotten how to go to the movies respectfully. So it leaves Gold Class. I know. White whine; first-world dilemma. It's tough. But nothing suits Gold Class better than a one hundred and sixty-five minute long film. Django Unchained. I'm giving it nine out of ten. V—— believes it is the best movie he has ever seen in Gold Class (a statement not dissimilar to 'the fastest white man at sea level', but worthy praise nonetheless). On the ride home it was even, almost, impossible, except for John Malkovich instead of Christoph Waltz, to play the 'you know who else could have played ———'s role' game, as per custom. The casting was spot on. The main characters perfect. Samuel Jackson enigmatically wrong. Don Johnson fabulously dressed in white. John Jarratt unexpectedly Wolf Creek-ish. The blood was insane—more insane than Kill Bill, maybe. The genre-bending was arched. The music sublimly right-angled. A proper review (which is what I always dream of doing) would tell you more of the story and have background information and literary analysis of the thematics. But I am too tired to deconstruct and research the latter and too wary of spoiling the plot for the former. So I leave it there.

And being cultured today (as you can tell, in the photos, by our visit to Galactic Circus on the way to the movies), I also finished book four for the year. Now I am thirteen books behind. Thank goodness for holidays. Although, it is not going to be a lie on the beach type holiday and so I doubt I will finish thirteen books in two weeks. A couple maybe. Here's the review for:

  1. You wear it best - love the shoes! I agree Django was a beautifully-crafted movie and no one could replace C. Waltz. I did have to squeeze my eyes shut a few times.
    thanks for linking up to Vis Monday!

    1. It was a bit like that - especially with the dogs (and I am usually braver than that???)

    I'd just love to see something that isn't animated. Although Wreck it Ralph had a charater in it that reminded me of you alot.
