Friday With Friends
Pat was in town again for his DMin classes again so a few of us got together Friday night. Actually it was just Pat and Randy and me, though it seems that maybe we saw Tim too -- though, it's hard to be sure.
Mainly, I liked how this picture turned out and wanted to post it!
Films Recently Watched:
The Fox and the Hound (1981) dir. by Ted Berman, Richard Rich, Art Stevens
Kingdom of Heaven (2005) dir. by Ridley Scott
I love Ridley Scott's visual style and there is plenty of it here. Almost every frame in this film is a work of art all by itself. The story suffers due to cuts for length reasons in the theatrical release, but I hope that it will be fleshed out in the 4-disc Director's Cut that releases later this month (Which, by the way, is a steal for $17.46 at Amazon).
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) dir. by David Lean
How fast can 2 hours and 41 minutes go by? Just watch this and find out. The pacing here is just perfect. Wonderful story-telling and acting.
