This has been my favourite movie night so far. Instead of rushing from wherever I was late leaving yoga or other films, or talks, or sometimes work, this time we were for dinner and then a drink first. The dinner was really good. The first delicious steak I’ve had in Bristol. We were still kind of late for the movie but I didn’t mind so much. I had highish hopes for Holy Motors, from the Cannes buzz, although since it is a journey film set in a limo it immediately brought to mind Cosmopolis, which felt something like sitting in traffic for several hours. It dragged a little. I was left empty and wanting by so much of it, I wanted to invest more in the central “character” but the only glimpses of him were in the car. It was bit of a showreel, as we left I heard people discussing what a great actor Denis Lavant is. However I left wanting to talk about it, and talking about it topped off a lovely evening (after a slightly frustrating trip to the corner store).
