This is way after the fact but after seeing my dashboard and the last comment Lisa left (the original topic was High Fidelity) I thought I’d include a film with these other inanities I call posts.

One of the last films that stood out to me (and probably one of the last films I’ve seen period, sadly) was Up in the Air which was a very interesting, appropriate (for me) little gem. Granted, we tend to like films that resonate with us, rather than something that is technically impressive, so it should come to no surprise that I found some of it quite personal. If nothing else, pay attention to the song that plays over the closing credits. Talk about hitting close to home. I’d go into it more but I’d have to see it again, plus I promised (implicitly) I wasn’t going to do the blustery posts anymore šŸ™‚

But, with regards to the post title, read this column from Roger Ebert about director Jason Reitman. It’s a fascinating little read, especially his remarks pertaining to women.
