    I just watched Agora, a sprawling epic film by director Alejandro Amenábar about Hypatia, the Alexandrian lady philosopher, mathematician and astronomer at the end of classical antiquity and the rise of theocracy that may have set science back a thousand years. It is not a fast paced adventure film, but one that makes you think and is a beautiful visit to what we imagine the past must have been like. Except for the obligatory British accents in ancient Alexandria (well, what else would work?) and some seemingly up to date hair fashions, the film seems pretty authentic to this history laymen at least.

    In truth it took me three nights to watch it, not through any fault of the film but because I could fall asleep in the middle of a hurricane with Armageddon to the right of me and Ragnarok to the left. It is a good movie in spite of my aging attention span.

    Just saw The King's Speech. It was amazing. I won't be surprised if it gets an Oscar or six.

    I would love to see that one but apparently it won't be released where I live . People are pretty disappointed about it.

    That sucks. Because that movie is rather wonderful. Really strong cast, compelling story and a general lack of American-ness. A great, great movie.

    Somehow in my internet surfing last night I got watching Passages from James Joyce's Finnegans Wake, a remarkably obscure experimental film made in the 60s:

    Suffice to say, I ended up actually watching the entire thing in a sort of disturbed fascination.

    Contempt, by Jean-Luc Godard. I saw and loved Breathless, so I decided to explore the French director a bit more. While I loved the cinematography, and the dialogue was (as usual) as real as it gets, I had a hard time really connecting emotionally with the characters. I think I'll have to watch it again, because I think I'll like it more after repeated viewings.

    Also, I noted several connections to David Lynch's Mulholland Drive: the scene where Michel Piccoli and Bridget Bardot go to the theatre reminds me of both the opening jitterbug scene from Mulholland Drive, with the dancing people casting silhouettes on the backwall, and Club Silencio; and the last line of both films is "Silencio." The content of both movies is very similar, too.

    Very nice. I look forward to showing to my students. I'll have to skip the little gratuitous nudity during the opening credits, but otherwise it'll be great.
