The weeks have been filling up quickly with fun now that non-Chiberia temperatures are here, but I really need to get back on the making horse. Yowza. I am bursting with ideas, but I need to set aside time for making!

Films watched 17th week of the year:

The Do-Deca-Pentathlon
Oldboy (2013)
Empire Builder
Only Lovers Left Alive

It’s been a long time since I have loved a film as much as Only Lovers Left Alive. I think the last was Upstream Color. Everything about OLLA was near perfect. During the opening scene, I knew I would love this film. The soundtrack, the acting of the perfect cast, the look of it. Man, I love films, but this is probably now my favorite vampire film. I am convinced that Tilda Swinton is the best actress living today.
