Friday night we went and saw Ethan Hawke in Hurlyburly. Wallace Shawn, Parker Posey and Bobby Cannavale were also in it. I wasn’t crazy about the story but there were some really funny parts and good commentary on the world.
The story centered around Ethan Hawke’s character and three of his friends, the women in their lives and heavy drug use. It was one of those stories where at the end nothing really changes or gets better. No character ever has an epiphany or anything, it just ends. So we were kinda left to wonder what the point was. Patrick can deal with that kind of story a little better than me, but I need a clear cut ending, preferably a happy one.
My favorite line is when Parker Posey and Ethan Hawke are having a very melodramatic arguement and she tells him to stop yelling. He says, ” My voice is raised for emphasis which by the way is a perfectly legitimate use of volume.” Patrick likes when Josh Hamilton (the jerky friend from With Honors)the only one who didn’t do any drugs, says to Ethan Hawke, “Are you going to remember this in the morning or is this one of your biodegradable moments?” So we enjoyed it, and the acting was good, but not my favorite story.
Yesterday we went to the movies. First time we’ve been to see anything new in awhile and it was nice to go. We watched “A Lot Like Love”, which I really liked. I know, I’m a total cheesey romantic, what can I say. And darn it if I don’t like Ashton Kutcher more and more everytime I see him in something else. I really don’t want to like him, but I do.
Today I’m very tired from several days of running around like crazy and not getting enough sleep. Think I’ll head to bed early and get ready for the week.
