Today's Mood

Happy 47th (!) birthday
to the incredible edible Tilda Swinton:

The Archangel Gabriel (Tilda Swinton),

"You're handed this precious gift, right? Each one of you granted redemption from the Creator - murderers, rapists, molesters - all of you just have to repent, and God takes you into His bosom. In all the worlds and all the universe, no other creature can make such a boast, save man. It's not fair. [pause, leans in] If sweet, sweet God loves you so, then I will make you worthy of His love. But it's only in the face of horror that you truly find your noble self. And you can be so noble. So... I will bring you pain, I will bring you horror. So that you may rise above it. So that those of you who will survive this reign of hell on earth will be worthy of God's love... The road to salvation begins tonight. Right now."

Man, I loved that performance -- that casting choice, really -- so, so much.

She and Peter Stormare took that movie to a whole new level of awesomeness. I actually liked the whole movie though - Keanu included.

47? Wow.

Stormare was, uh...oversized, I thought. I didn't dig him quite so much. But yeah, I thought the movie as a whole was pretty good for what it was. I watch it whenever it's on HBO.
