Vicky Cristina Barcelona/Sal's Paradise
Finally saw the new Woody Allen film this evening: awful narration; caricature figures; and the same existential crisis sentiment that underpins 90% of his films (perfected in Hannah and her Sisters, perhaps?).
But then I even enjoyed Match Point and so yeah, it's really watchable, beautiful cast too. True Javier Bardem, Scarlet and Penelope make for a great aesthetic but Rebecca Hall, wow, is beautiful without so much as a menage a trois.
EVENING MUSIC TO ENJOY WITH WINE AND A SIDE OF GUACAMOLE
Sal's Paradise from Leeds/London,ridiculously attractive band complete with violin and, at times, greyhound fast finger pickin'. Watch the Soviet inspired videos and then have a quiet moment to "The Flood" and "19th June".
