I nearly fell to my knees and kissed the skanky sidewalk when I saw the New York magazine cover featuring this film (excellent article here). Larry David directed by Woody Allen. No release date for the UK yet. But I saw an ad for its Italian release whilst I was over there. Maybe they will show it at the festival. I will watch it soon by hook or by crook. Bloody hell. Can't wait.
Almodóvar never fails. I love his crazy women and how his films look. He's almost too good, now.
Julie & Julia
My fabulous mother and I read this book yonks ago. It was a bit pap. But I love Nora Ephron, I love Brooklyn and I love food. I can't wait to see it.
The September Issue
A film about putting together the giant September doorstop issue of US Vogue. For me, absolute porn. Like a real life The Devil Wears Prada. Ooh!
Synecdoche New York
Old news this one, really. I've wanted to see it for months but never got around to it. Written and directed by Charlie Kaufman and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. What's not to love? I think it's still on in London somewhere...
All but one of them are New York based. And films set in NYC give me that cosy autumn feel. Yum. I'll report back when I've seen them all.
[Have you noticed how the date is 9/9/9 today? Blimey. I'm cycling everywhere and keeping my helmet on all day.]
