hey everyone I’m sorry for skipping a week. things have been uber busy and i’ve been feeling beat. the last few weekend have been spent at work and I’m not as resilient as i used to be. a few years ago i never had days off but over the last 2 or three years i got used to weekends and now i’m kind of a wimp when i work through them. sadly because of all this i have very little to share. having this weekend off just resulted in cleaning my apartment and resting as much as possible. kate and i are hoping i have some of next weekend, because it presidents day weekend and we both need to get out of the city. the grey winter weather has left us both feeling dead inside and it would be nice to get out of this environment for even just a day. where are we going? being that we decided late we are thinking about taking the LIRR out to Montauk. come to think of it we were supposed to fly up to Vermont to see DR phil and DR leena but they have been MIA both from kate and i.
I’m sorry i was rambling. anyway to have some sort of reason for this post lets talk about a movie we snuck in one saturday night. there will be blood , nominated for an oscar stars daniel day lewis. set in the late 1800, it’s about a man of that time discovering and buying up property with oil on it and mining. It has much more going on in the story than that but that’s the over all plot. Lewis’s character is one that at the core is damaged and lonely. Its like life beat him early on (something we do not see) and his only recourse is to spend the rest of his life trying to beat it back. this makes him hard and angry. his only sign of humanity is his adopted son that loses his hearing in a drilling accident. the movie goes on the show his great success in the oil industry, combined with is continued decent from personal life happiness. much of the movie is played out with just a soundtrack and little dialogue. the times which dialogue is used it is delivered with a thunder strike that is the tone of Lewis. in short the movie was really made for me by the last scene where Louise’s character completely loses it. I give it 2.5 stars as it’s a bit heavy for my little paul brain.
