movie suggestion

Anybody who wants a concise and beautiful example of what JP was talking about concerning an actor using each individual part of his, (or in this case, her) body as a distinct tool should look at Robert Altman's "3 Women". I saw it yesterday and the first few sequences of that movie are driven entirely by the speed and gestures of the actor's limbs and facial features and stuff. Its an amazing film. Anybody seen it?

...and by "Peter", I obviously mean Kevin.


This is for Peter. I's in Spanish and I am racing out the door however I suggest Spanish-speakers watch this and English speakers look for this, or something similar, in English.

What's up bloggers!

I plan on writing some kind of post before next lecture (i hope) regarding some of the topics we have been discussing in lecture and section, but I first wanted to "check-in" to the blog and give it some activity.

Feel free to add me on facebook if you want to extend the conversation or your "contacts" any further.
