Smart People was good
We saw Smart People in Columbus, GA yesterday. Good film. Not great (I prefer a plot, to character driven or slice of life), but good. Intelligent. Worth seeing.
Better than Margot at the Wedding (which Mayu and I both didn't like, though we're fans of Jack Black and Nicole Kidman), and Sideways (which I can't remember at All now, though I like the star). I wonder why Hollywood is making more of these kinds of films, which have such limited audiences. And giving them more Oscars. To try to change how popular audiences think? I wonder. It will be a Long time before certain kinds of films become mainstream.
