See this. Even the fact that I was sat next to a 50-stone dewd who kept on waking himself up with his own loud breathing motions that sounded like the consumptive gaspings of a past her prime five-centime syphilitic turn-of-the-century Parisian hooker...even that didn't stop me from laying back in awe. Kubrick with a heart. Felt really experiential- like you're actually there with Amy Adams (who I've never paid attention to before, but who's on a total roll right now with this and Nocturnal Animals both out at the same time). Loved it so much and can't wait to see it again (thank fuck for this Cineworld card and living about 90 seconds away from a cinema). Think I'll avoid Saturday nights from now on, though. Was like a symphony of restive rustlings, and that dude next to me committing slow suicide. I mean, you should have seen him tucking into that ice-cream. He couldn't breathe and eat at the same time, so he kept on spluttering in between every bite. Fuck are we doing to ourselves in this country? I kept wanting to tell the projectionist to stop the movie for a few minutes so I could give him an intervention. Um, anyway just emphasising the fact that the film managed to survive even that major test of my nerves. Like a movie full of all the awe-inspiring, rheumy-eyed moments of Contact sans the bits of hokiness. Although I was scatting with an astrophysicist friend the other day about how E.T. prob won't turn up until industrialisation's at least been around for a thousand years, 'cause if they're looking for signs of terraforming it'll take that long for the effects of our rejigged earth to light travel their way. I'll let that slide for now, though, 'cause it was so well made. ;)
