With the temperature going to 40 today, it was no time to be outdoors. This is a picture of the upper deck of a double decker bus on Flamingo.
Movie #1024: Sicko (Michael Moore, 2007)
Caught this one on the Showtime channel. The real title of this film should be "I Hate Capitolism". Health care is just an example of what runs better under socialism in Canada, the UK and France. And just in case you missed the point, he takes the abandoned Americans to Cuba for treatment. Jolly good.
Movie #1025: Hotel Rwanda (Terry George, 2004)
Just because a movie depicts a momentous time in history, doesn't make the film momentous. This movie just looked way to clean and sanitary for a movie about genocide.
Movie #1026: I'm Not There (Todd Haynes, 2007)
Instead of a biography of Bob Dylan we get a movie that has the feel of a Bob Dylan LP from the 60s. All kinds of references to Bob's life and career are cut and pasted together like the images that Dylan would cut and paste together in a song. Fun to watch but the volume on my laptop is way too low so maybe I'll watch it again when I get home.
