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