Tonight I saw The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. It's really wonderful, one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. Buttery, flickering sunlight, dresses and curtains fluttering in breezes, faces leaning into the camera, moving in and out.. Soft, soft music.. Velvet Underground and Tom Waits.. The whole movie is this long, graceful poem. And it's so sad but so gorgeous and soft and lyrical and dreamy and wry at the same time.. I haven't ever seen anything like it. And you must must see it in a theater. Trust me, and go!
