What's It All About?

Jude Law seems to be in just about every movie coming out these days; a temporary elevation in media induced social consciousness. It's interesting how out of the billions of individuals in existence and throughout history, there are but a mere few able to inhabit the minds of the masses.

There is a poster for Alfie on the bus stop just down from work; in fact I think they're on pretty much every bus stop around town. Went to see it last night. At first I thought it was just going to be another typical Hollywood romantic comedy, loaded with all the clich├ęs, but by the end, I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I guess it kind of got me thinking about things in a different way - what every film should strive to do - about life and the way I've been living it and all that.

I only just found out that this one was a remake of the Michael Cain version way back in the sixties. I wonder if it's worth checking out.

Wine & Women?

The original Michael Caine movie's great - and it's very definitely not a romantic comedy.

I also had expected a lighthearted romantic comedy, and it ended up depressing the hell out of me. Same thing happened with "Little Black Book" ...

I think you're just obsessed :P

The title I got from the Alfie poster at the bus stop. It's the tag line.
