Be kind rewind

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

Michel Gondry’s next movie: Be kind rewind. The trailer looks really promising. I was re-watching The Science of Sleep last night, such a sweet movie, even with its flaws it’s so enjoyable.

I finished Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics (I was laughing outloud reading this one) and just started a whole collection of his novels and short stories that I bought in Milan. Plan B [...]
