MM and I watched Cassandra’s Dream last night – movie by Woody Allen. It always fascinates me how you can tell a Woody Allen movie as soon as the actors’ begin to talk. A Woody Allen script is always very honest and real with real reactions and reaction times. For instance, in one scene, Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor are outside on a balcony plotting their murder and a train goes by. Colin and Ewan acknowledge the train as anyone would in real life, but continue to try to speak over the noise. In most movies, they would cut and wait for the train to pass to get clear dialogue.
Although I’m sure the movie, in its entirety, is very good, I fell asleep on MM’s lap. I’ll have to ask him what he thought about the ending tonight – he has to watch a movie from the beginning to the end – always.
