Week's End - The Trouble with the Truth

If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you. --
Oscar Wilde

Well, then. This weekend, I'll be keeping my mouth shut in public (mostly). Having to self-censor--more than usual.

Yesterday, I enjoyed the new film, Paris. Very good cast, very French, & non-clichéd. It's not for people who will be upset that the Eiffel Tower is seen but briefly. But it is much, much more the 'truth.'

I'm so out of the loop with new films, seems an age since I went to the cinema. I will try harder

Oh, man. There are people furious, furious I tell you, about everything. I hold strong opinions, to be sure, but some of these folks are wearing me out. I don't dare tell them anything approximating 'the truth.' (Like: get some therapy. You are yelling about a farmer's market, for crying out loud, because Michelle Obama facilitated the opening. Just a for instance...)

On the film front...I know. I'm near two good places or I might not go as often. It's the prices that stop me from seeing as many as I used to. It's not just an investment in time, but $. Still, I hope you go to something soon (though London prices give me sticker shock.)
