Where the Buffalo Roam

As the story goes, a friend of a friend of mine worked on a golf course in Aspen, Colorado.
One day, Hunter S. Thompson and Bill Murray showed up to play a leisurely round of golf. They put their golf bags on a couple of carts and teed off late in the morning. Usually, a normal round of golf takes anywhere from 4.5 to 6 hours to complete. Well, seven or eight hours later, they hadn't returned. It was getting dark and the clubhouse personnel wanted to go home. They had to go out on the course and look for Thompson and Murray because they needed the carts back. They found them out there, still playing golf. lol

Harvey

Is ancient, but wonderful!!!!!!!! One of my all-time favorites. Cracks me up every time I watch it. A very kind and gentle Jimmy Stewart and an 6 foot invisible rabbit as a best friend. Dialogue in that film is just great-in the way that some older films were so good at-more dialogue less action.

R.I. P. Michelangelo Antonioni

From msn: "ROME -- Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni, whose depiction of alienation made him a symbol of art-house cinema with movies such as "Blow-Up" and "L'Avventura," has died, officials and news reports said Tuesday. He was 94."

From Hal: Blow up is a must see movie depicting swinging London in 1966. Drug usage, sex, fashion and the Yardbirds ( I believe the short lived Beck/Page lineup) smashing a guitar in a club like the Who. Ther is a troupe of Mimes riding around and creating instant happenings. Soundtrack is by Herbie Hancock.

He also directed Zabriskie Point to which Jerry Garcia as well as Pink Floyd, The Youngbloods and John Fahey contributed to the soundtrack!

Hair

Last night I watched Hair on a commercial-free t.v. channel, and what was extra awesome is that the film was sent in English, which is rare here. I watched it with my 9 year old daughter, who was really digging it. She was just cracking me up with her comments (had never seen a musical before) Said things like "It is really strange how all those people just break into song, and know all the words." Explaining Claud's tripping scene was a bit sticky, but we got through that. We had a long discussion after the fim about the Viet Nam war, and how the film was by people who were against the war, and how there actually were people like the characters in Hair at that time (minus the spontaneous singing, of course ;-) and then she made a comment that just blew me away. (She does tend to do that from time to time) She said "Mama, that film is actually about right now too, right? Cuz Iraq is the same as Viet Nam, a bad war." Out of the mouths of babes, or what???

I was prepared to think it was really lame, but I can't remember ever laughing so hard at a movie. Really funny, and very well done. Check it out!

I'm not sure what brought this to mind...

but I have say that one of the most engaging movies I've seen in recent time was "Holes." I think it's even a Disney movie. Surreal, poignant, funny, and I've got to say I like young Shia LaBeouf a lot. I think it falls more into the cult classic category, but rent it. You won't be sorry.
