This always make me smile like a creepy moron...

Um. Yep. I think everyone is already aware of this Criterion DVD's existence, but I just want to point it out once again. But that is one cool (albeit minimalistic) cover for one crummy movie...

"It's meeting the man of my dreams and then meeting his beautiful wife"

Because Delon and the bird had a lot of chemistry...

Starting June 17th (aka the last day of school), expect a steady stream of reviews on this site. I feel guilty for writing up full-blown reviews at the moment since I still have so much school stuff to do. Stuff like, y'know, annihilating CollegeBoard in my mind.

I just finished watching Melville's incredible Le Samourai, starring the deliciously attractive Alain Delon. I'm just dying to review the film, but it's best if I put all my thoughts in order first. Just know that the film is incredible, I love it, and I want to re-watch it right now. Plus, Delon is gorgeous. So is his beautiful then-wife, Nathalie Delon, who is also in the movie (see subject of this post). My dad thinks Delon looks a little like James Dean, but I beg to differ. What do you folks think?

I'm also watching The Graduate in English right now, as a companion piece to Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five and Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea; they are all part of of our existentialism unit. I've seen that movie and I've always wanted to give it a proper review, mainly because I have so much stuff to say about it. I really can't wait to review that movie, and I say that with all the passion left in my tired little heart. All I can say is: I hate Benjamin Braddock.

Well, wasn't this pointless?

A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented

I've been having random thoughts about Tess of the D'Urberville, mainly because of Masterpiece Theatre's extraordinarily brilliant, haunting, and beautiful mini series.

I'd also want to share with you a great Youtube video inspired by this series, <3 Coldplay (potential spoilers?):
