Normally I like to plan for things. I like to know what I’m doing and when I’m doing it. That said, it is great when one does something on the spur of the moment. I’ve been wanting to see 2 Days In Paris since it came out and seeings as it was finishing up at the Oxford Picturehouse this week, and how that cinema is literally just round the corner from work, and how they had a showing 15 minutes after I finished work, I decided to go.
And I’m glad I did. It was great. Written and directed by Julie Delpy, the film owes a lot to the Richard Linklaker films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset (the latter of which Julie Delpy also helped to co-write). It’s another film where they talk, alot, and where the conversation goes from inane and comedic to deeply serious and interlectual in the blink of an eye. I would like to know though why Julie’s character is in love with Adam Goldberg’s – I mean come on, surely girls wouldn’t find him attractive what with that many tattoos over his body?!
Leaving the theatre just after 6 o’clock, Jericho was just beginning to get a bit of an evening buzz, and dusk was setting in, and it felt so fantastically autumnal. I love this time of year! 🙂
