Silent Movie Good

So ... I went by myself to a silent movie, meaning I'm two for two for unused tickets in the last week. (I guess 2 for 3 as everyone showed up for Macbeth.) I did manage to strike up quite a conversation with an elderly gentleman, though, so I was able to sit and talk about silent movies for some time over a glass of wine he bought for me. It was fun! We're supposed to go see some movies at some point in the future, but nearly every show in the Barbican's silent movie series is on a date I already have plans! Well, who knows, January will be here soon enough.

Anyway, Asphalt was pretty good, nice sets and costuming, occasionally sparkly brilliant cinematography. In my mind it was kind of a fantasy version of Carmen, in which she goes, "Oh noes! I am ruining your happy bourgeouis life" and fesses up to her bad deeds to save her man - pretty unrealistic, of course, but, well, whatever, she should have let him go to jail!
