Just a couple of notes... I caught The Bling Ring a couple weeks back. It's surprisingly kinetic for a Sofia Coppola film, and while enjoyable at times, I feel it's ultimately as shallow as most of its characters.
I caught a Nic Cage film marathon here last weekend, and I saw Vampire's Kiss for the first time. Holy fucking shit... I can't believe this movie wasn't part of my film lexicon until now. All the cliches about Nic Cage being batshit insane are on full display here. Unbelievable.
Also... ATTENTION SEATTLE CINEPHILES: Post Tenebras Lux is finally making its premiere here on July 26 at Northwest Film Forum. I plan to be there wide-eyed and ready to be floored.
