BABEL



Watched Babel last night. I don't think I liked it. It was just too choppy, seams showing, strings hanging. The only two things I concluded from the film are:

1) White Americans should stay home OR alternatively just go on Carnival cruises and ski-trips. Don't go to remote places and then get caught up and make colored folks lives all drama.

2) The human condition stinks. I wish artists would stop reminding us.



However if by some chance I got a shot at hooking up with the director Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu and you see me at some bar cooing at him, you better not sidle up to us and mention this bad review. I mean, I liked Amores Perros.

In other news, thinking about Sherrybaby again and wondering how many women actually "sleep their way" to things. I also wonder how many men I've worked with or was interviewed by who woulda thrown me a bone if I'd offered some *ahem* services. The fact that I was a very sheltered child (until I moved out at 16), makes me always worry that I am still very naive.
