Declarations (4/156) Addendum --- Day 4/160

Walk: Day of Rest (and reading about contemporary art gallery scene, stay tuned)
Distance: 0, small home yoga

Ciwt misses Roger Ebert.  Here's part of his review 12/8/96  of The Third Man:

Of all the movies I have seen, this one most completely embodies the romance of going to the movies. I saw it first on a rainy day in a tiny, smoke-filled cinema on the Left Bank in Paris. It told a story of existential loss and betrayal. It was weary and knowing, and its glorious style was an act of defiance against the corrupt world it pictured. Seeing it, I realized how many Hollywood movies were like the pulp Westerns that Holly Martins wrote: naive formulas supplying happy endings for passive consumption. I read the other day that they plan to remake "The Third Man." Do you think Anna Image result for The Third Man Annawill cave in to Holly Image result for The Third Man holly--or will she remain true to her bitter cynicism and unspeakable knowledge?
