2-16-14 The Great Beauty of The Fabulous Ice Age

La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty) directed by  Paolo Sorrentino is an extraordinarily wonderful 2013 film from Italy. Excellent cast and exquisite cinematography. We saw it last night. Highly recommended.

The Fabulous Ice Age is a new American film by Keri Pickett seemingly about the history of ice shows in the USA. It is much more than that. It shows us much about who we (the United States) were through much of the 20th Century and how our cultural influence and thus our power spread over the globe. It is streaming for free on Netflix and you should check it out. (Full disclosure – Way back at the start of her career Keri took our wedding photos. We could not have made a better choice. As is the way of these things we lost touch until this film came to NYC)

 When winter first begins to bite
and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
’tis evil in the Wild to fare.

  1. We picked Her over The Great Beauty last night. We’ll have to get back to see it before Feb 26. We’re trying to do date nights as often as possible, as MTM cannot join me in MS/AL/TN.

    We both loved Her.
