Otto says greep grop
For a guy who supposedly likes words and deals with them on a regular basis, I've been feeling pretty inarticulate recently. (Is this nerve issue now affecting my head or my mouth as well?) Attempting to explain how I felt about Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette tonight, I kept coming up empty. The best thing I can say at this point is that I enjoyed the montage where the gambling chips, shoes, cakes and other fantastic embellishments were made to look interchangable, like everything looked good enough to wear and eat and caress. That, and I liked how it all felt like one big arc of a blow-out party. And it was a fun escape with gorgeous views. Easy on the eyes and the brain, I guess.
