WITH AN ILLNESS

I am on day three? Three and half? Of some crazy flu, a piglets flu in my paranoid fever brain. Netflix instant is my best friend. On day one, I learned the hard way, do not try to watch Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles the 3.5 hour feminist epic (largely silent) if you are medicated. It felt like it was 5 hours long and I had to restart it 4 times.

Also enjoyed during my confinement to bed: Pageant a documentary about Ms. Gay America. Trailer is kind of wack. Movie is worth seeing if you have even a modicum of interest in drag.

Bolt, worth seeing if you enjoy cartoon dogs, which I do.

Killer of Sheep essential viewing. I think the scenes of the kids playing and the girl standing around in the dog mask are my favorites since seeing Spirit of The Beehive, where she lays her face against the tracks.
