anne & I went into manhattan last night to catch haneke's the white ribbon @ film forum but it was SOLD OUT (way to go nyc arty/depressing film crowd). so we ended up strolling all the way over to the sunshine theaters (pretty much crosstown along houston st) and saw imaginarium of dr parnassus instead. really fun & beautiful - so much less depressing and mind-breaking than a haneke movie. tom waits plays the devil.
Really excited to see 'The White Ribbon,' but I have to wait another week yet. Alas, Minneapolis is not New York. It's gotten good -- but not great -- reviews and the feel of the previews make it seem quite different than Haneke's other films. Maybe just because it takes place almost one hundred years ago. Who knows.
Just watched 'The Headless Woman.' Subtle, moving, and quite puzzling. Reminded me a bit of 'Cache,' actually, which is by far my favorite Haneke film.
