    I thought I saw you at Love Stalker! I was going to approach you between the movies but it looked like you were embroiled in a conversation with a young woman. Hope you enjoyed it.

    Yea, i was was there with my friend Krystal. I was surprised seeing you there. Yeah, i loved the movie.

      Wow, I assumed you were there because you heard about it on my blog! Did you hear about the movie from another source? The Q&A was the highlight for me. I was on my third Triple Orgasm when the interview took place. It was a great night.

        That’s exactly where i heard of it! The movie sounded really interesting, plus Love and Anarchy was showing after that. I had to go. All in all, a great night.

    WOW,great list,seen 7 of them.I was hesitate to buy Topsy Turvy,how do you like it? what’s your view on The Umbrellas of Cherbourg?

    • michaelgloversmith

      7 of these films were movies I screened in various classes. I LOVE Umbrellas of Cherbourg and screened it in a “Perspectives on Film” class as a good example of a musical made outside of the U.S.

      I borrowed the Criterion Topsy Turvy blu-ray from a friend of mine. I had never seen it before but I have no qualms about calling it Mike Leigh’s second best film after Naked. I would say you can “blind buy” it with confidence. It’s so fascinating to see him apply his “improvisational” style to a period piece. It’s an absolute triumph on all counts. The cinematography by Dick Pope is superb and it also features what is probably Jim Broadbent’s best performance.
