09:39 am: ботокс по понятиям
Судя по всему, начальник режима пытается сохранить свое двуличие: выдано 10 дней найти отмазку.
Думаю, дадут полгода и выпустят, засчитав срок предварительного заключения.

01:15 am: The Enchanted Island at Met
The Enchanted Island was exactly what you need at December 31: a little bit of broadway musical with charming Danielle De Niese.

04:32 pm: Сахаров 24
пора!

(временно позаимствовал юзерпик у линор горалик - не могу попросить, не в друзьях)

October 5th, 2011

09:26 pm: Farewell, Steve!

July 13th, 2011

11:31 pm: Анна Каренина в Метрополитан
У Ратманского получился вокзал для двоих: "сама, сама, сама", с бала - под поезд.

И неограниченное количество ново-русского лубка в качестве продукт-плайсмент.
Пока народ безграмотен, из всех искусств для нас важнейшим является манга.

11:20 am: Japan 2011
Когда, как темная вода,
Лихая, лютая беда
Была тебе по грудь,
Ты, не склоняя головы,
Смотрела в прорезь синевы
И продолжала путь...

Аркадий и Борис Стругацкие. Далекая Радуга

January 15th, 2011

08:54 pm: шевелящимися виноградинами
угрожают нам эти миры
и висят городами украденными
золотыми обмолвками, ябедами
ядовитого холода ягодами
растяжимых созвездий шатры
золотые созвездий миры

05:20 pm: With the help of few long flights and island isolation I finished Infinite Jest. On the crossroad. It's hard to stop myself to go back and start from the first page.

02:04 pm: You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger
Made exclusively from awkward scenes, for me, it is the best Woody Allen's film in the last five years. And it's not funny.

September 8th, 2010

10:28 am: Утро, 21 век.
ВТЦ. Стройка. Краны. Гигантский металлический каркас.
На электро-подъемнике стоит рабочий и молотит кувалдой по свае.

11:20 pm: по новым данным разведки мы воевали сами с собой
Farewell - невероятно бесхитростная драма, какой бывает только реальная история, с превосходным воспроизведением советских реалий и удивительно сильным message'м: причиной распада Союза стал удачный блеф Рейгана, когда он на мгновение получил уверенность, что ему не заглядывают в карты. Да и Кустурица. Настоящий полковник.

06:17 pm: Inception


Christopher Nolan did it again. He planted the Inception and Internet is all over it. This time Nolan got very wide auditory, and money, not like with Memento. Nolan is the only modern director, who's using cinematography to its fullness, sorry, Gaspar Noé and Guy Ritchie, you had your moments.
