if you live in LA, you’re going to end up with a few free passes to new movies at least a few times a month. rarely do i go, but last night Chris and I saw The American Astronaut at the newly remodeled Fairfax/Beverly movie house.
Lots of people wont like this black-and-white sci-fi semi-homoerotic epic western musical comedy, but me and Chris did. a reviewer called it Kubrik on valium. i thought of it as a really excellent student film that you’d hope to see on the Independent Film Channel but theyre always playing “Sid and Nancy.”
i laughed. i liked the music. i liked that it was almost all men on the screen all the time and when there were women they werent really beautiful women, cuz you really dont see those sorts of things in films these days.
before the film we went to PF Changs at the Beverly Center and i’m quickly becoming as addicted to their food as a few of my friends, which is scary because their food is so different that if you have a hankering for it, you really cant be satisfied with any other chinese restaurant.
if only they delivered.
