Good movies

I have just a moment but I thought I'd mention a couple of good movies I've seen recently.

Meduzot a/k/a Jellyfish - Noel and I saw this over the weekend and knew not a thing about it. I won't go into depth here but it was one of the best movies I've seen in a while. Shades of Egoyan but with a more grounded dialog and camera style. Beautiful and heartfelt. I don't imagine it will be around next week so if you live in MPLS, you might want to catch it this week.

Cocaine Cowboys - Saw this on DVD - great documentary about the cocaine smuggling scene in Miami in the mid-70s and early 80s. This is the true story that they based Miami Vice around. There's a hit man in there who's one of the scariest people I've ever seen in a movie. The time flies by and the movie lets the people who were there talk rather and the director doesn't waste your time with editorializing.

Busy Signal

I'd better write something here before I lose the domain but I'm too tired to say much. I will say that the new job is a ton of work but also, quite literally, a dream come true. No dreams come into reality without a lot of hard work. As is obvious I haven't posted much here for a while. I hope to pop in every now and again.

Doors for the Minnetonka studio open June 27, so pop out and see me when they do open! The schedule's even up online now!

Take care and I hope things are going well for all of you!
