On Caves and Comedy


If haven't yet heard about the Werner Herzog documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams, it's amazing especially in 3D. I am not always a big fan of 3D. It's usually pretty unnecessary but in this case it's a wonderful use of the technology. Since most of us on the planet (unless you are a big-shot archeologist) aren't going to have the opportunity to go in to see the 32,000 year old cave paintings in Chavet, France ... here is your opportunity to do it virtually! You actually get a sense of what it would be like to be in the cave!

I saw it last Thursday and it was definitely worth the drive to Santa Monica to see it. (In LA we generally avoid leaving our neighborhoods for things like movies because of traffic!) Check out the trailer but I am telling you ... 3D is the way to go, if at all possible. If not, it is still worth seeing. Imagine ... 32,000 years ago, these people creating art by torchlight ... who were they? What were they like? What did they believe in? It gets your imagination going!




For lighter fare ... I loved Midnight in Paris! It was so charming. I left with a huge smile on my face, laughing with my friends about different characters and lines in the movie. It was just plain fun!

It's a perfect movie for a summer night!




I am thankful for laughter,
except when milk comes out of my nose.

I want to tell you a terrific story about oral contraception.

I'm going to see Midnight in Paris tomorrow! I've had my eyes on it for a while now, and what better way to spend a day off, then with Woody. :)

Sometimes we sure are on the same page! I just heard an interview with Werner Herzog on CBC radio and I found him SO interesting! I had seen Grizzly Man and his other film about the Antarctic(can't remember the name) and have reserved a few other obscure ones from the library. I will try to find out where you can access this interview. Cheers Lucinda.
