It has only been 20 years since I found out about it, but it was good to finally see Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders. It was the closing night film of the German Film Festival and I absolutely loved it. I felt that it was so incredibly exhilarating to get a birds eye view [...]
It is really nice to have a Saturday night at home for a change, and just cook and drink wine and listen to nice music. I am making a mini herbed roast lamb, and it is fun. I went to the Melbourne Museum this afternoon. It is definitely worth doing. They have some amazing exhibits. [...]
Ismael's Ghosts was a very interesting and emotionally sophisticated film about the life and work of Ismael (Mathieu Amalric). On a seaside holiday with his girlfriend Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg), they are visited by Carlotta (Marion Cotillard), Ismael's former wife, who has been missing, presumed dead for 21 years. Carlotta's audacity and immaturity are beautifully contrasted [...]
It was a bit of trash I guess. $5 proseccos and a view of the mountains. It was actually quite ridiculous in so many places. As if a woman who has just been attacked in her home would get off on some form of bondage in a play room. Christian Grey was definitely abusive. And [...]
I finished the first season of the Handmaid's Tale last night. It was an intense mixture of horror and uplifting inspiration. Such a great, creative story. And I loved the ending. I loved the audacity. I loved leaving that family completely barren. Dystopian fiction can be very interesting.
So incredibly grateful right now. I only had to wait 20 minutes for a bus and it is 11:30 pm on a Wednesday night. So amazing. This little strip is one of my favourite in Melbourne. It is Lygon St in Carlton. So leafy and vibrant and lush.
Apparently Day of the dead is a time to commemorate and remember our friends and family. It is a great opportunity to celebrate the people around us who are part of our journey on earth. I am totally feeling this today. I feel so grateful to be in this world, firstly. It is a huge [...]
The Como Cinema is a nice part of the world! I went there to see a screening of an Italian Film Festival film - Tenderness. It was lovely. Slow but emotionally interesting. It left a lot to the audience's interpretation, like good art I guess. There were so many unanswered questions, but I loved it. [...]
I could drink fine quality loose leaf chai tea all evening, and I think that I will :-) We thought these reflections on the glassware at Brunetti's were amazing. I captured it, drinking Pinot Grigio after a French film. Is there anything so rewarding as photography? It is so fun. Can I tell you a [...]
