It's mid-August, everything outside is hot, the Olympics are raging with Michael Phelps doing USA proud, the two Bay Area baseball teams are playing like absolute chumps and the school year is only a few days away from commencing for me. So who turned on the film faucet?
Vicky Christina Barcelona. Transsiberian. In Search of a Midnight Kiss. Frozen River. Tropic Thunder. Boy A. Red. And of course, Man on Wire.
These are all films I'm quite enthusiastic about seeing in the very near future. What happened? Who turned on the faucet? Why now? Not that I'm necessarily complaining, but it does create a little anxiety about which films to see first, what the priorities ought to be and a general game plan for all these.
