... you can learn from:
Elise: I like taxis. I was never good at geography, and I
learn things by asking the drivers where they come from.
Eric: They come from horror and despair.
Elise: Yes, exactly. One learns about the countries
where unrest is occurring by riding the taxis here.
(Note to self: check to see if I have done this book store scene for my "Great Moments in Shelves" series yet.) Cosmopolis is a movie that I had one of the most drastic swerves of opinion on ever - I, in the infamous words of Roger Ebert, hate hate hated it the first time I saw it, but then on a second time through I suddenly, out of nowhere, liked it quite a bit. I'm still unable to explain what changed between my first and second viewing - perhaps I was taken over by a pod person? Ha if I was taken over by a pod person I would be, like, way happier... wouldn't I?
Oh Enemy. How I love Enemy. On that note a happy birthday to the super talented Sarah Gadon! She has made some very fine choices in her career - look no further than her last project, Sarah Polley's Alias Grace, and her next project, Xavier Dolan's The Death and Life of John F. Donovan. She has worked with the cream of the Canadian crop! Cronenberg, Polley, Dolan, Villeneuve... next stop should totally be a role on Schitt's Creek. (Another note to self: the Canadian Mafia is real.)
