00:42 - A thousand autumns, revolutions and Rod Hull-alikes.
I also watched Persepolis tonight. Well, it was between that or Kurosawa's Throne of Blood. Ended up opting for Kurosawa's Macbeth inspired epic. I however seem to have lost another DVD to the sands of moving between flats and/or mental ex-es frisbee-ing my stuff out of windaes so Persepolis won by default.
Heavy fucking film. Quite, quite brillant though. It's an animated autobiographical account of a young girl's life growing up in Iran pre and post Islamic revolution with a few stints in Europe based on a graphic novel. I've never read the novel before but the film was visually stunning - the terse black and white animation fitting the oppressive feeling of post revolution Iran.
It's a sad day for me - I have officially become uncool as fuck. I'm away to hold a candlelight vigil for my lost credibility. Even if they are sooo early 2011.
We are all my lost credibility.
