Well it's that time of year when everything is chaos. I felt like I was in the eye of the storm as I had something planned every night last week and every single one of them cancelled! So it gave me some time to spend at home and get things done (namely napping.. I apparently need some serious naps at the moment). Also gave me time to start catching up on film for the year. After the exhaustion from Sydney it was a well needed week at home. I hit up the usuals Miss Marmalade, Simple Affair, Purple Peanuts and Wide Open Road.
The first 3 months of next year are already booked up for me. Because of this I am having to postpone the January class till late Jan or possibly Feb I will keep you posted. This will be my last Monday Melbourne Roundup for the year. I finish work on Wednesday till the 10th of January and intend to relax completely during this period. I wish you all a safe and happy holidays! I'm going to do a detox and spend as much time at the beach as possible. Big love and thanks for being the best darn readers a lady could ever have xxxx
We're all aware of my complete undying adulation of Soderbergh. He can even put Gwyneth Paltrow in a movie and I DONT HATE HER!! Amazeballs. This movie is excellent it would get 4.5 ... but it had a U2 song in a very schmultzy unecessary scene so automatic deduction. 4/5
crazy, stupid love
Meh. Thin, unbelievable narrative. How can you make a film with Julianne Moore, Steve Carrell and Ryan Gosling boring!?!? (some genuinely funny dialogue though) 3/5
tree of life
Too long. Too boring. Some beautiful imagery. Too preachy. Too conceited. 2.5/5 (I turned it off 3/4 of the way through)
