[I was ill for a week or so in here which is why I watched the perfect chicken soup for the soul, Firefly again over two days. I didn't appear to watch any new television other than the odd episode of Big Brother V (which is probably right actually -- other than some news programmes which as will be explained in the appendix). It was during this month I really started to hit the Francois Truffaut filmograophy on dvd -- I ploughed through them and only really La Peau Douce stuck. Things like The Man Who Loved Women sounds good but only really succeeds in demonstrating how most men are animals. Lost In Translation is on dvd already I see. But this was really the month of Before Sunset which as you know I travelled to a whole other city to see. I hope when that appears on shiny disc it doesn't disappoint the idea I have of it being a great film. Sometimes second passes can be unkind.]

[The Olympics. I've talked before about how it tends to take over my time and here is the proof. For two weeks I watched more television than I'd seen all year, trying to fit the rental dvds between the cracks. Finally two Traffaut films I could fall in love with, Fahrenheit 451 and . The Last Metro. Quite illuminating seeing GĂ©rard Depardieu's performances in that and Nathalie ... -- he's busy because he's consistent. Who thought Joel Schumacher was still capable of something like Phone Booth? And really I Robot is a much better film than you'd expect.]
