If This is Sunday ... Day 3/113

Walk: Sundance Kabuki (SF International Film Festival: 1. Words and Pictures (Canada) 2. Club Sandwich (Mexico) 
Distance: 3 miles

Ciwt's around the world in 10 days and an armchair is almost done.  And so is she.  It's tiring to take in movies at this pace; can only imagine what energy/stamina the real thing must require.


Today began with a members-only surprise screening of what turned out to be
Words and Pictures, a delightful, intelligent, engaging rom-com thanks to a good directing,
a solid script and wonderful/believable chemistry between Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen.  


The more subtle and artistic film was Club Sandwich from the Mexican writer-director Fernando Eimbcke.  He casts a fresh eye on puberty with subtle humor, evocative simplicity, depth and maturity as well as a beautifully controlled visual style that had echoes of David Hockney's swimming pool paintings of the 1960's.
