Music:You Had Time - Ani DiFranco - Nick Hornby's Songbook
Kim and I got to see Richard Linklater's Before Sunset today. I re-watched his Before Sunrise last night while Kim slept on the sofa next to me. Both films require a pretty forceful suspension, not of belief -- they aren't implausible -- but of cynicism. You have to hug your inner romantic to enjoy them fully. But I think they're really wonderful once you are able to put yourself in that touchy-feely place. It took me about ten minutes to do that for each film. Then again, I could probably watch Julie Delpy read the news and suspend all cynicism. And to think Kim accuses her of having excessively thick ankles. . .
