Travel: Rome

Rome... with Biggity.

The inspiration came from Hugh Garvey's article on travelling to Rome with the kiddos (keep in mind that he seems to be a professional food/travel writer).

More, more, and more recent, intel from Jordan Ferney's trip.

Movies to See

Moonrise Kingdom.
Could Wes Anderson have made a film as good as Rushmore?

Jiro Dreams of Sushi


Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, 2011 Remake - if it's even half as good as the original, it will be worth it. It was pretty good but I still prefer the original BBC version.

Pina - because it's Wim Wenders and because of this Anthony Lane review.
Margin Call because of David Denby's review.
Alice by Jan Švankmajer

I first heard about it over at Poupée Mechanique. With images like that, how not to see it? Oddly enough, I just saw Tim Burton's 2010 Alice offering. It looked great but I found the weird vibe between Alice and the Hatter very distracting. Kudos to Anne Hathaway though for sending up goodness.

The Hurt Locker for the film.
Bright Star for its good looks.
