For Malley

Beyond the first draft you'll notice there's not a lot of abstract expressionism and any flight of fancy has landing gear to spare. Basically it's an exploration of the events, not an attempt to replicate the style.


I don't normally do film recommendations but I was most impressed with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (no relation to the Roald Dahl book of the same name)
I only went (Friday night and all and so expensive)because the guys we were meeting at the pub had all planned to catch the 6:45 session screening in George Street.
The after movie dinner (yes we ate late) would have made a nice short film itself as no sooner had we placed our order and sat down than there were plates of food - plates of wrong food "No, nobody ordered chicken caesar salad" so we got asked by two different people (each laden with wrong menu items) what our orders were. Eventually, after a confusion that was never explained, we started getting our meals and a lively discussion ensued on, oh, all sorts of things but strangely, as Iain mentioned, not about the movie which only got a cursory going over while waiting outside the gents.


There's a buzz around Gary the Rat; my son was raving about it last week and it came up in conversation this evening. Fortunately this is one of two nights when I could stay up till 3:30 in the morning to watch it so I had Rage on and went on the computer while waiting. There was some improv show hosted by Drew Freedman on before it. Anyway shall I just say it's worth staying up till 3:30 in the morning for and leave it at that (it's also the sort of show that justifies such a geek/freek/goth/sloth hour)
