By my request, I asked Vali to show me this, as I'd never seen it before. Afterwards I had the same impulse little kids have after a bad dream or a violent rainstorm: Mommy, can I sleep with you tonight? D:

That doesn't mean I didn't love it, mind. It just frightened me a little. Especially at this one moment where I felt that the movie was watching us instead of the other way around. ::hides under the covers::

I've missed Odeon night (that's where Vali and I pick a movie that makes us exercise our grey matter). Sometimes I feel that I don't have the brain power to have Odeon night, forgetting that regular Odeon nights make my noggin feel stronger, more limber. Able to lift cars off babies. What the heck are these little guys doing under there?

Now we're watching The Mighty Boosh. Vali accurately describes TMB as Persona with all the ponchos in the world removed. I can only watch 2 episodes at a time before I want to burn it as a witch. Then it's off to soft cuddly entertainment like Teenage Strangler or The Giant Spider Invasion. *happysigh*

I always figured they crawl under to lick up the spilled antifreeze. it's an attractive jaunty green, and smells/tastes good

The Tribune Co. has retained bankruptcy lawyers. Huh.

. . .

You know, I've only ever seen Fanny and Alexander (which I loved, loved, loved). Where would you and Vali recommend I start? There's a lot of Bergman out there.

>.> If we don't get a paper on our doorstep one morning, we'll know what happened.

I *love* Fanny and Alexander. (*bonds*) Vali's Mom got it for her for Christmas a few years ago, the 5-hr version. That New Year's Eve we watched the whole thing in one sitting (with regular stretch breaks and snack infusions), and it's one of the best things I've ever seen.

Vali's seen a lot more Bergman than I have, so I asked her. She recommends Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal, just because the latter is so iconic. I've only seen Fanny and Alexander, The Seventh Seal, and Persona. I think Fanny and Alexander is the best, but that's just because it's the best ever. Persona is wicked good-- I'd love to see it with you sometime. I'm imagining a Bergman filmfest at Wiscon: you, Vali, me, Jonquil, and Roxann.

OK, I've put Wild Strawberries and Persona in the Netflix queue. Fanny and Alexander is the best ever. It's just so gorgeous and earthy and generally wonderful. I'm down for a Bergman filmfest curated by you and Vali.

(The Tribune is bankrupt at this point, although Gov. Blago has stolen that Chicago thunder. Apparently the Trib has been sitting on that story for a while, not running it at the bequest of Patrick Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor. Do good journalism, go bankrupt. Awesome.)

I saw this movie. I know I did. I have no idea what happened in it, other than that there Liv Ullman shore is purty.

Watched the second disc of The IT Crowd. Matt Berry replaces Scary Guy from Brass Eye, for a whole new type of terror.

Don't watch Snuff Box until you've finished Boosh, or you may have to be institutionalized.

I have no idea what happened either--I hope that was the point, otherwise I'm going to feel silly-- and yes, you are right. Liv Ullman is stunning. I wish I could rock the ponytail and headband look. (Note to self: get retroactively statuesque genes.) Same goes with Bibi Andersson, rrrr.
