Big Kitsch --- Day 3/342

Walk: Sundance Kabuki (Big Eyes)
Distance:  2 miles




Why did Ciwt do it?  She knew she wouldn't like it, but some yoga people said it was 'Fabulous,' so skeptically off she went to Big Eyes.  Waltz is oppressively hammy and annoyingly awful. Adams is depressingly half-alive and unsympathetic because of it.  The whole vivid pastel movie was visually dismaying to Ciwt, empty and dispiriting in the way of turquoise Naugahyde, desert diners, neon - and, of course those paintings.  Why did she do it?  A good question for both Margaret Keane and Ciwt.
