First off, I have to say that 2004 is shaping up to be the most movie-laden year ever for me. Last night I went to see Napoleon Dynamite. It is just the darlingest thing! All the gawky, uncomfortable humor of Welcome to the Dollhouse, but none of the bitterness. The delivery, the dialogue, the details--I was laughing through the whole movie. Brian wasn't too impressed, so I guess the appeal is not universal. He left during the credits, which I NEVER do (I paid to see them, right?) and so he missed the final scene. Ha!
Next week the same theater (AFI in Silver Spring) is showing Lawrence of Arabia, which I have seen thrice but never in 70mm.
