California Raining:Going to the movies
Well, I’m here in the Valley, and it feels great, ‘cept it’s been raining off and on since I arrived yesterday. Went to see The Dark Side of the Heart 2, a wildely romantic movie that reminds me of Anais Nin’s stories and Ingmar Bergman’s in its insightful, over-the-top romanticism. Directed by Eleiso Subiela, and set in part in a circus, the flick focuses on a poet and his quest for the perfect woman. The dialogue is poetry, the images are surrealistic, and the mood is romanticly wry.
