This was a Friday night/Saturday night bi-fecta, but you know.
I watched *Burden of Dreams* last night. That was really good. I have to imagine it was significantly better than Fitzcarraldo. I still want Werner Herzog to narrate my life as I go about my daily schedule:
"Ze man zey call buffcoat lazsilly pedals his bicykle arount zees streetss. He appearss to haf novere to go and nothink vaiting for him. It iss a ssad commentt on hees ssad reality."
You couldn't make a movie the way he did nowadays. That goes without saying. I want to watch "My Best Fiend" for even more crazy Klaus Kinski.
Tonight I finished *McCabe and Mrs. Miller,* which I'd watched half an hour of in October (my life has gotten complicated, not in a bad way).
A great movie, and definitely my favorite Robert Altman movie so far. Although *The Long Goodbye* was also very good. This one was super sad and super realistic. The Tribune Rating Service gave it three out of four stars and those people are idiots.
